•     The Rebels also posted a series sweep of No. 12 TCU to open the season. It is the first time Ole Miss has swept a ranked team in the opening weekend in program history. It also marks the first time the Rebels have posted a sweep of a ranked team since taking three games from No. 5 LSU in the 2010 season.
•     Senior RHP Brett Huber became the career saves leader in the season opener, closing out the game against TCU. He also picked up his second save of the season on Saturday and has 28 saves for his career.

BIANCO CLOSING IN ON 500 WINS

Bianco enters the season sitting on 475 wins as the Rebel skipper and is 25 shy of 500 wins as head coach at Ole Miss. For his coaching career, Bianco holds 575 wins after picking up 100 victories in three seasons as head coach at McNeese State prior to taking over at Ole Miss for the 2001 season.
