OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss Athletics is looking forward to a big weekend, headlined by the Regions Bank Grove Bowl that kicks off at noon CT on Saturday and is free to the public. Rebel Baseball and a free Nelly concert also highlight the festivities.

The 25th annual Chucky Mullins Courage Award ceremony, presented by the M-Club, will be held Saturday morning before the spring football game. 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 OleMissFB.com or calling 888-REB-TKTS.

A jam-packed slate of activities begins Thursday with the Rebel Intercollegiate College-Am, hosted by the women’s golf team. It will be a shotgun start at 1 p.m., and sign-up is still available at OleMissFB.com.

The events ramp up on Friday when the women’s tennis, baseball and women’s golf teams are all in action at home.

The Rebels’ nationally ranked baseball team will host a three-game series against Auburn on Friday (6:30 p.m.), Saturday (4 p.m.) and Sunday (1:30 p.m.). For tickets, visit OleMissFB.com or call 888-REB-TKTS.

There will also be a free concert in The Grove on Friday night featuring Grammy award-winning artist Nelly. The concert begins at 8:30 p.m.

Women’s tennis will host South Carolina on Friday (3 p.m.) and then a pair of matches on Sunday against Florida (11 a.m.) and Arkansas-Pine Bluff (3 p.m.). Women’s golf hosts the Rebel Intercollegiate Friday-Sunday. Admission is free for tennis matches and the golf tournament.

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 www.olemisssports.com/m-club for more information.
