Update 8:41 a.m.
Bjork just confirmed Houston as the site in discussion. He’s hopeful for an agreement soon.
A side note here. I like the neutral site games, and they’re often easier for schools to agree upon rather than a home-and-home series.
However, one team is invariably the unofficial “home” team as Florida State will be in Orlando.
Boise State didn’t exactly bring a lot of fans to Atlanta to start the 2013 season, so the Rebels didn’t get a real sense of that then.
It stands to be a different scene in Orlando and in Houston if the Baylor game comes to pass.
Ole Miss, on the other hand, has no nice venue close enough to really be the home team in a neutral site game.
Ole Miss and Baylor very nearly matched up in the Sugar Bowl. They would have had Baylor not been upset by Texas on the final weekend of the 2015 season.
Now it looks like an Ole Miss-Baylor matchup could come to pass, but it won’t be soon.
Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork told SECCounty.com that talks are on-going with Baylor presumably for a neutral site game in 2020. Nothing has been finalized.
Bjork didn’t mention a site, but Baylor AD Ian McCaw did in this piece with the Waco Tribune.
Ole Miss opens the 2016 season against Florida State in Orlando.
Ole Miss also has future home-and-home non-conference dates with Cal, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest already scheduled.
