OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s soccer team will play a challenging schedule in the 2014 season, including 10 home games featuring five exciting non-conference games and a home tournament in addition to the conference slate, it was announced by head coach Matt Mott on Tuesday.

The Rebels are coming off a second round appearance in the NCAA Tournament and a record setting season that saw Ole Miss post a 16-6-2 record and a fourth place finish in the SEC standings.

“Our schedule is the most challenging non-conference schedule we’ve had at Ole Miss,” Mott said. “We start off with an SEC team and then follow that up with a Big 12 Team and then an ACC team. We’re playing extremely difficult competition and have some rivalry games with Memphis and then added a road game at a perennial top 15 team with a trip to UCF. It’s a challenge, but it’s one the team is excited about. We’re ready for it and the challenges it gives us as we prepare for the SEC.”

Ole Miss will kick-off the season with the first-ever live event broadcast on the SEC Network when the Rebels host Georgia on Friday, August 22 at 5 p.m.

The Rebels will play a challenging non-conference schedule that will feature Iowa State from the Big 12, Louisville from the ACC, Minnesota from the Big 10 and rival Memphis from the American Athletic Conference.

Ole Miss opens the season with home matches against Georgia (8/22) and Iowa State (8/24) before taking to the road to face the Louisville Cardinals (8/29). The match at Louisville will be a part of a doubleheader with the men’s team as the Cardinals open a new soccer stadium.

The Rebels then return home to face Louisiana-Lafayette (8/31).

The following weekend, Ole Miss will host the inaugural Rebel Classic featuring Auburn, Minnesota and Memphis in addition to the home-standing Rebels. As a part of the tournament, the Rebels will face Minnesota (9/5) and Memphis (9/7), but will not face the Auburn Tigers.

Ole Miss will then travel to face Austin Peay (9/12) and host Middle Tennessee State (9/14) before diving back into conference play at Mississippi State (9/19).

The final non-conference game of the regular season will come that Sunday at Central Florida (9/21).

Ole Miss will then play nine consecutive SEC matches to close out the regular season, hosting Arkansas (9/25), Texas A&M (9/28), Missouri (10/24) and Tennessee (10/30). The Rebels will travel to face Auburn (10/3), Alabama (10/5), Kentucky (10/17), South Carolina (10/19) and Vanderbilt (10/26).
