BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Ole Miss got its bowl week started Wednesday with a full day of activities around the Magic City.

The FCA Breakfast was first on the menu, featuring speaker Rich Wingo, a former linebacker for the Alabama Crimson Tide and Green Bay Packers. Ole Miss senior linebacker Joel Kight and Pittsburgh sophomore running back Isaac Bennett also shared about their faith in front of the large audience at the Sheraton’s Birmingham Ballroom.

Ole Miss went through workouts later in the morning, continuing preparation for Saturday’s BBVA Compass Bowl. The Rebels practiced under a cold, overcast sky on the campus of Birmingham-Southern College for just under two hours.

One of the highlights of most bowl weeks is getting to spread love and good will to the local community. On Wednesday afternoon, Rebel upperclassmen and coaches visited patients at the Children’s of Alabama Hospital, including many that were already Ole Miss fans.

In the evening, both the Ole Miss and Pitt teams attended a dinner buffet and comedy show at the Stardome Comedy Club in Hoover. Upon arrival, the teams were cheered exuberantly by the Stardome staff, and they were treated to a first-class Southern meal.

On tap for Thursday is an 11:15 a.m. practice (open to media, closed to the public), an afternoon trip to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and an evening of Bowling and BBQ.
