OXFORD, Miss. – As a thank you to Rebel Nation for their unprecedented support this athletics year, Ole Miss Athletics and the M-Club are providing free admission to the BancorpSouth Grove Bowl, the Rebel football team’s annual spring intrasquad scrimmage, on April 13.
The game, which kicks off at 1 p.m. CT, will be televised live on CSS and headlines a week full of activities. Among those are the Rebels’ Choice Awards on Wednesday night, April 11; a free concert in The Grove with Grace Potter and special guest Jerrod Niemann on Friday night, April 12; and the Chucky Mullins Courage Award Breakfast on Saturday morning, April 13.
In addition, the Ole Miss baseball team hosts Alabama in a weekend series at Swayze Field, while the track & field and women’s tennis teams will also be in action on campus.
Seating for the BancorpSouth Grove Bowl will be general admission. Premium areas will also be available to club members and suite holders, and those individuals will receive a letter from the UMAA Foundation in the coming weeks with details.
The BancorpSouth Grove Bowl is the culmination of the Rebels’ spring drills, which begin on March 17, and proceeds from the game benefit the M-Club's J.W. "Wobble" Davidson Scholarship Fund. The Ole Miss M-Club is an honor organization for men and women who have earned a varsity letter in an NCAA-sanctioned sport sponsored by the university and have participated in a formal induction ceremony.
