Because I've been asked, here are a few items of interest on bowl week:
- The team will report to Birmingham on January 1.
- The official team hotel is the Sheraton Birmingham. Unfortunately there are no rooms left for bowl week.
- The team will practice at Birmingham Southern.
- The BBVA Compass Street Fest will be Friday, January 4 from 2 to 8 p.m. at Five Points South with a team pep rally from 5 to 6 p.m. Visit Bowl Central for a complete list of events for bowl week.
- Ole Miss will be the home team for the game.
- The official fan color for the game is red. Dress appropriately.
If you are among the unfortunate few that cannot make the trip, olemisssports.com will have daily reports, including video and photos, from the Magic City on all of the happenings of bowl week. Visit Bowl Central to make your plans, and we look forward to seeing you there.
