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

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.

    I think that is good to present this bowl trophy in the presence of LSU. This sending a message to them and any other teams watching, that Ole Miss football is back.

    That 14th national ranking, a bit low, The Rebs deserve a much higher national ranking base on their season finishing and the highly ranked teams that they defeated and nearly defeated. In honor and with respect to the Miss A&M fans, I will not mention this past season egg bowl game.

    To the Ole Miss hoops, I was impressed with their performance against the Florida reptiles last week-end. In this Ole Miss playing with three (3) starters out and in putting up an outstanding game, as they did, they need a trophy.

    I think that the Rebels definitely deserve a higher ranking, considering that u beat not one, but TWO TOP TEN TEAMS!!! How are we going to beat two top ten teams but be number 14 in the nation!!!!????!!!!

    What is your pick for the b-ball game? What about Arkansas, I think that we could have great success against Arkansas, I am looking for two straight Sec wins for the Rebels. Arkansas is good, but maybe not as good as u think. Hey, their worse than Florida!

    Ole Miss 65
    Arkansas 58

    Ole Miss 74
    LSU 60
