For Ole Miss, the city of Nashville represented the beginning and end of the 2013 football season and one-fourth of the Rebels’ wins.
The Jeff Scott touchdown run lifted the Rebels to a 39-35 win on opening night and was perhaps the most electric play of the season for Ole Miss.
Due to quirks in the remaking of the SEC schedule, Ole Miss will play Vanderbilt in Nashville for a second-straight season this season, and the game will be played at LP Field, site of the Rebels’ 25-17 Music City Bowl win over Georgia Tech.
The Commodores had won five of the previous six meetings in the series before Ole Miss won last August at Vanderbilt Stadium.
The win in that stretch was in Nashville, 23-7 at Vanderbilt Stadium in 2009.
Ole Miss fans have a history of supporting their teams in Nashville including a strong turnout for the SEC basketball tournament championship game in 2013, a 66-63 win over No. 13 Florida.
Last year’s Ole Miss-Vanderbilt game attracted a sellout crowd of 40,350.
LP Field seats 69,143 and attendance for the Music City Bowl was 52,125 .
