I spoke with athletics director Pete Boone a few minutes ago regarding the football schedule.
Ole Miss is still in search of a 12th game. The likelihood is that 12th game will be against a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) opponent.
“We thought we had a done deal with something, but at the last second that school went a different direction. We’re having to rekindle some embers out there. It’s very frustrating to all of us, but such is the world of scheduling,” Boone said.
Presumably that potential opponent was TCU, but Boone did not confirm that.
He holds out hope for a quality “name” opponent for a seventh home game.
“I don’t know definitely we’ll have to go I-AA, but over the last three or four weeks, a lot of I-A teams are off the board now,” Boone said.
