OXFORD, Miss. – As a part of the annual Meet The Rebels Day festivities, the Ole Miss volleyball team will be hosting its Red-Blue Scrimmage on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. and fans are encouraged to come get a first glimpse of the team in action.

Admission to the event is free as Regina Thomas – a 2010 All-America selection – and the Rebels hit the court at the Gillom Sports Center in preparation for the season opener next weekend in the Burnt Orange Classic at the University of Texas. There, Ole Miss will play an exhibition match against the Israeli National Team before taking on Pepperdine and the fourth-ranked Texas Longhorns.

Following the volleyball scrimmage, the Ole Miss football, soccer and volleyball teams will break from preseason practice to visit with Rebel fans.

The event will begin at noon at the Indoor Practice Facility on campus and features a full day of festivities for fans that will conclude with a football scrimmage at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

The doors to the IPF will open at noon, and fans can purchase a boxed lunch sponsored by Chick-fil-A for $10. There will also be a raffle for prizes ranging from a pair of football tickets for a game in the Rebel Club or South Zone to gift certificates to local businesses.

Rebel and the Chick-fil-A Cow will greet children, while the Ole Miss spirit squads will also be on hand.

Head coach Houston Nutt will be among those to address the crowd beginning at 1:30 p.m. A two-hour autograph session featuring the football, soccer and volleyball teams starts at 2 p.m. in the IPF.

Fans will be able to purchase official Ole Miss football team gear, including game used jerseys for $50 and game used helmets for $200. There will be a limited number of polos, t-shirts and sweatshirts at a discounted rate. The 2011 Ole Miss football media guide will also be available for $15 (cash only).

Shortly after signing autographs, the football team will take the field in preparation for the 6 p.m. scrimmage that will end the day's activities.

The weekend begins with the Rebel soccer season opener on Friday night. Ole Miss hosts in-state rival Southern Miss at 7 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.
