Has Pete Gone Nutts?
Pete Boone sure has made some decisions that have made the fans happy over the past couple of months. Wonder what has gotten into him. I love night games, and those 1:00 games the Rebs used to play never made any sense to me.
(UMAA)OXFORD, Miss. -- Due to expected high temperatures, Ole Miss is announcing a 6 p.m. CST kickoff for the Aug. 30 opener against Memphis and any non-television September home games this season, including the Sept. 13 meeting with Samford.
The Vanderbilt game on Sept. 20 is tentatively set for 6 p.m., pending the announcement of the SEC TV schedule for that week.
"The heat factor played a major role in this decision," said Ole Miss Athletics Director Pete Boone. "We have experienced exceptionally hot weather in Oxford this summer, and we hope to provide as much relief as possible for our fans in the early-season games."
