Ole Miss football announced on Monday that they have scheduled a home-and-home series with BYU for the 2028 and 2029 seasons. Ole Miss will travel to Provo, Utah and the legendary Lavell Edwards Stadium to face the Cougars on Sept. 16, 2028. Then, the very next season, the Rebels will host BYU on Sept. 8, 2029 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
The Cougs and the Rebs have played just once before back in 2011 when Brigham Young University came all the way to Oxford for the season opener and “upset” Houston Dale Nutt and Ole Miss, 14-13.
BYU, who operates as an Independent in the FBS, is looking to build off of a fantastic 11-1 2020 season in which NFL Draft buzz boy, Zach Wilson, did a lot of good things for the Cougars.
Provo seems very cool and the stadium even cooler. The natural grass surface was built in 1964 and seats 63,470. It’s fielded a national championship team in 1984 and a Heisman Trophy Winner in 1990. They’ve retired six numbers in their history, you might’ve heard of some of them:
Eldon Fortie (lol, sick)
