The Inn at Ole Miss will host the ceremony with breakfast beginning at 8 a.m. CT, followed by a short program that culminates with the unveiling of this year's winner that will wear Mullins' No. 38 jersey in 2014. A limited number of tickets remain by visiting or calling 888-REB-TKTS.

The Regions Bank Grove Bowl, which supports the M-Club's J.W. "Wobble" Davidson Scholarship Fund, features Hugh Freeze's Rebels in action at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in the culmination of spring football drills. CSS is televising the event live.

Fans that have Ole Miss baseball parking passes are encouraged to park there for football, as well. It's recommended that everyone else park near Tad Smith Coliseum and walk around the construction (new parking garage and basketball arena) to the north.

Stadium gates open at 11 a.m., and kickoff is set for noon. While admission is free, please be mindful of prohibited items, including coolers. Gates that will be open include 8, 9 and 10 on the West side; 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 on the North; 17, 18, 20, 21 and 22 on the East; and 23 and 24 on the South. All restrooms will be available except those on the upper East concourse.

ADA parking is in the South Lot. Shuttles to Vaught-Hemingway will begin at 10 a.m. They will also take patrons to baseball and will run through the end of the baseball game.

The competition will take on a practice format that features offense vs. defense in a variety of situational scrimmage periods separated by periods of regular practice drills. Points will be awarded to each unit for various "victories" within the scrimmages.

The M-Club's J.W. "Wobble" Davidson Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to the children of former Ole Miss letterwinners.

Davidson, a three-sport star at Ole Miss and assistant football coach for 22 seasons under John Vaught, died in 1998 at the age 79. As an assistant in 1945-68, he helped coach the Rebels to 16 bowl games and six Southeastern Conference championships. He also spent 11 years as head men's tennis coach and was adviser to the M-Club for 23 years.

The M-Club Alumni Chapter is an honor organization for men and women who have earned a varsity letter in an NCAA-sanctioned sport sponsored at Ole Miss and have participated in a formal induction ceremony. Visit for more information.
