OXFORD, Miss. -­ Ole Miss Athletics Director Pete Boone announced Thursday the addition of a two-game football series between the Rebels and the University of Texas.         “We are excited about being able to bring Texas to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium for the first time,” Boone said.  “You are always looking to add a marquee match-up to your schedule and the Longhorns have a rich football tradition.  I also think our fans will enjoy making the trip to Austin the following year.”         The first game in the Ole Miss-Texas series is set for Sept. 15, 2012 in Oxford, while the return game to Austin is scheduled for Sept. 14, 2013.  The addition of Texas follows an earlier announcement that Ole Miss had added home-and-home series with Georgia Tech (2010 & 2011) and Clemson (2015 & 2016).         It will be the first football meeting between the Rebels and Longhorns since the 1966 Bluebonnet Bowl in Houston, Texas.  Texas leads the series 5-1, with the lone Ole Miss victory coming in the 1958 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, 39-7.         Texas is 3-0 against Ole Miss in Austin, while also beating the Rebels in that 1966 Bluebonnet Bowl as well as in the 1962 Cotton Bowl in Dallas.         Boone also announced Thursday the complete Ole Miss schedule for 2008.  The Rebels will open the season at home on Aug. 30 against the University of Memphis.  Other home dates will be with Samford, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Auburn, Louisiana-Monroe and Mississippi State.  Road trips in 2008 will be to Wake Forest, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas and LSU, with open dates scheduled for Oct. 11 and Nov. 8.
