The Ole Miss Rebels officially announced dates for seven future football games this afternoon, including games against Idaho, New Mexico State, Troy, and UL Lafayette.
Ole Miss opens the 2013 season at home against Idaho on Aug. 31, followed by a visit from Southeast Missouri State on Sept. 17. The Rebels then travel to face the Texas Longhorns on Sept. 14 before hosting Troy on Nov. 16.
The Rebels kick off the 2014 season against Boise State in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta on Aug. 28. Ole Miss then hosts UL Lafayette (Sept. 13) and Presbyterian (Oct. 18) in Oxford.
UT Martin visits Vaught-Hemingway Stadium for the season opener on Sept. 5, 2015. Ole Miss then hosts Fresno State on Sept. 19, travels to face Clemson on Oct. 3, and then returns home to face New Mexico State on Oct. 10.

The Rebels need one more game each in 2014 and 2016 to complete the non-conference portion of their schedule. The final game in 2016 could be Memphis, as the two schools reportedly have a “verbal agreement” for a 2016-17 home-and-home series.
Ole Miss, led by new head coach Hugh Freeze, kicks off the 2012 season on Sept. 1 at home against Central Arkansas.
