May 16, 2016

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference has announced that the May 19 baseball game between No. 6 Ole Miss and No. 2 Texas A&M will air on national television.

Along with Saturday's series finale on SEC Network as well, Ole Miss Baseball is slated to finish the 2016 regular season with 11 game that appeared on national television. The Rebels have played nine of those contests thus far, sporting a record of 7-2 that includes a pair of victories over both then-No. 21 Arkansas and then-No. 8 LSU.
