Flashback to 1966

The Rebels have faced a variety of opponents for homecoming, and like UAB, some are now members of Conference USA. One such foe is in-state adversary Southern Miss, whom the Rebels matched up against for four straight homecomings from 1966-69.

Ole Miss' six-game win streak to finish out the 2008 campaign was reminiscent of 1966, when the Rebels opened 2-2 before closing out the regular season with six in a row. That streak began with a fourth quarter rally against the Golden Eagles to provide the Ole Miss family with a happy homecoming. The following is the Clarion-Ledger's account of the events of October 15, 1966, and the photo from the Commercial Appeal is of the actual punt return.
