OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss soccer team, fresh off one of the best seasons in recent history and excitement and energy high with the program following signing day, the Rebels take to the field this weekend to kick off a challenging spring season with a home tournament.
The spring season, which begins this weekend in Oxford, will feature six games against other NCAA Division I teams and an alumni game here in Oxford against former Rebel players.
"With us returning nine starters from last year's squad we are really going to challenge our squad with this spring schedule," said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. "We've done that with a quality team out of the Big East in Louisville, a quality team out of the Big 12 in Oklahoma State and a quality team out of C-USA in Memphis. We also will face Auburn who advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
"We'll get that started this weekend at home with a tournament that will include a pair of well-coached and fundamental teams in UT-Martin and Sanford," Mott said. "After the season we put together last year, we're excited to get back on the field and compete and prepare for even more success this coming fall."
Ole Miss will face UT-Martin at 11 a.m. on Saturday before then facing-off against Samford at 4 p.m. All games will be played at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium at the Gillom Sports Complex.
Later in the spring, the Rebels will also face off against the Memphis Tigers (March 27 - 7:30 p.m.) before taking to the road to face Louisville (April 7 - 1 p.m.). Ole Miss will also play a pair of neutral site games against Oklahoma State in Little Rock, Arkansas, (April 14 - 2 p.m.) and against Auburn in Birmingham (April 20 - 4 p.m.).
The Rebels will host its alumni game at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium on Saturday, April 13 at noon.
