Countdown To Kickoff: 36 Days

Today's countdown to kickoff photo highlights the Rebels' first bowl team. The 1935 Ole Miss gridders became the school's first bowl team with they faced off against Catholic University in the '36 Orange Bowl. Though, the Flood (Ole Miss wouldn't become the Rebels until the next season) lost the game Ole Miss has won 21 bowl games since, which ranks 11th all time in the nation.

If you have a suggestion for a favorite player, play or something a little more creative you would like to see featured in the countdown, leave a comment below or shoot me an e-mail at

  1. In your article you said, "though the rebels lost the game". However, in 1935 Ole Miss' teams were know as the Flood. I wish we would change our name back to the Flood rather than being known as rebels with a bear mascot.

    I rebel, rising Flood!
