OXFORD — Ole Miss’ Cotton Bowl Champion football team will be honored at Saturday’s men’s basketball game against LSU, as Bowl representatives will be presenting the trophy to head coach Houston Nutt at halftime. Tipoff is set for 3 p.m. CT at Tad Smith Coliseum, and tickets are available at OleMissSports.com.
Nutt’s Rebels recently earned a final national ranking of 14th after upending Texas Tech 47-34 in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. Ole Miss defeated eventual national champion Florida on the road and ended the year on a six-game win streak.
The Ole Miss hoops squad hosts a pair of SEC encounters this week, including Arkansas Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Rebels have won 12 of the last 13 meetings against the Razorbacks in Oxford.
