NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2013 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl is only two days away, and the Ole Miss Rebels wrapped up their final full practice of the season on Saturday while also enjoying some of Nashville’s sights and sounds.

The Rebels and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets started the morning with a breakfast hosted by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The guest speaker for the event was Rayna Stewart, a former NFL safety and coach with the Tennessee Titans who now coaches in the high school ranks in Nashville.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze and Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson participated in the pre-bowl press conference at LP Field on Saturday afternoon, taking the obligatory photos with the trophy that will be awarded to one of their teams on Monday evening.

After position meetings, lunch and medical treatment, the team traveled back to Montgomery Bell Academy for its third practice of the bowl week in Nashville and the final full practice session of the year. Despite cold and rainy conditions, the Rebels had a spirited set of drills that last just over an hour before heading back to the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

Noteworthy from practice was that senior running back Jeff Scott was absent due to a family emergency and is unlikely to play in the bowl game. Junior tight end Nicholas Parker also had a family crisis and will miss the game.

In the evening, the Rebel and Yellow Jacket players all went to a National Hockey Game between the Nashville Predators and Los Angeles Kings. The hometown Predators were victorious 3-2.

Sunday’s activities will feature the Coaches Brunch from 9-11 a.m. at the Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville. Fans will have a chance to interact with coaches and players from both teams during this event.

Starting at 4 p.m., the downtown section at 1st Avenue and Broadway will be taken over by the World Hot Chicken Eating Championship, followed by the MusicFest and Battle of the Bands (Ole Miss and Georgia Tech marching bands) from 5-7 p.m.

The Rebels (7-5) and Yellow Jackets (7-5) will face off on Monday at 2:15 p.m. at LP Field in Nashville. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN. For more bowl information, visit www.OleMissFB.com.
