Ole Miss will host Oregon State first. The Beavers travel to the Vaught on Sept. 18, 2027, and the Rebels will travel to Corvallis, Oregon on Aug. 31, 2030 to conclude the matchup agreement.

The Rebels and OSU have never faced one another on the football field. Ole Miss is 1-1 against current members of the Pac-12 Conference, both games against Cal.

This is the third Power 5 opponent Ole Miss has secured within the last two months for a home-and-home series. The Rebels added Purdue to their future schedules. The Boilermakers are set to visit Oxford in 2033 and Ole Miss will return the favor by visiting West Lafayette, Indiana, in 2034. Ole Miss also has a future home-and-home agreement with Virginia Tech. The Rebels will travel to Blacksburg, Virginia in 2032, with the Hokies heading south to Oxford in 2037.
