Ole Miss Alters Bowl Week Schedule, Moves Back Its Arrival Date to New Orleans
OXFORD, Miss. — Out of an abundance of caution, Ole Miss football has altered its bowl week schedule for the upcoming Sugar Bowl.
Rather than arrive in New Orleans on the 26th of December, as originally planned, the team will start bowl-week practices in Oxford and leave later in the week.
Ole Miss football released the following statement Wednesday afternoon.
Statement from Ole Miss Football:
“After reviewing the new policies for bowl activities, the team schedule has been adjusted to ensure the safest possible experience for the student-athletes and staff. Bowl week practices will begin in Oxford with the team’s arrival in New Orleans rescheduled from the 26th to later in the week. That date and other travel details are still being finalized. In addition, while our program is in a good place from a health standpoint, our medical staff will continue to monitor our team to guard against concerns related to COVID-19.”
The Rebel Walk will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Ole Miss and Big XII Champion Baylor are schedule to play in the Sugar Bowl at 7:45 p.m. (CT) on New Year’s Night. The game will be televised on ESPN.
