Baseball Fans Can Watch the Ole Miss Pizza Bowl on SEC Network+

The Ole Miss baseball team will close its 2020 fall slate with the annual Pizza Bowl this Sunday at 1 p.m. CT. The Rebel baseball fall finale will be streamed live on SEC Network+.
 
A tradition that head coach Mike Bianco brought to Oxford when he started at Ole Miss in the summer of 2000, the Pizza Bowl serves as the end of the fall season for the Rebels. The game, as well as the practices leading up to it, are coached by veteran players.
 
The Rebels held their Pizza Bowl draft on Tuesday at the Baseball Performance Center. Gunnar Hoglund selected manager Ryan “Bobby” Smith as the first overall pick. Doug Nikhazy later made Hayden Dunhurst the first player off the board.
 
The Pizza Bowl will be a nine-inning contest, where pitchers are allowed to throw a maximum of two innings. If the game goes to extra innings, the teams will begin with the bases loaded and one out. At the conclusion of the game, the winning team is rewarded with pizza, while the losing team runs on the field.
 
Due to COVID-19 policies, the Pizza Bowl will not be open to the public.
