The Southeastern Conference announced on Monday the start time for the third week in November as Ole Miss close’s out its home schedule against the Vanderbilt Commodores. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.

Vanderbilt is 2-7 overall and have a 0-5 mark in conference action. The Commodores have not played since Halloween when they lost to the Missouri Tigers 37-28. This weekend, Vanderbilt stays in Music City and plays host to the Kentucky Wildcats at 6 p.m. on ESPN 2.

Vanderbilt is led by Ken Seals and Mike Wright as both quarterbacks have thrown for 1,655 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season.

This annual matchup with the Commodores will be Ole Miss’ home finale and will serve as Senior Day for the Rebels.
