TUPELO – It takes a big event to get Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt and Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen under the same roof at the same time.
Tonight, the rival coaches will appear at the “Tailgate Together For Our Kids” at the BancorpSouthConference Center to benefit local Boys and Girls Clubs.
“We are very pleased with how sales have gone, but do have some tickets remaining,” said Evie Storey Boyd Director of Marketing and Special Events for the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Mississippi.
Boyd said she expected that the event will be a sellout at the door tonight. Tickets for the 7 p.m. are $50, while an additional $50 buys access to an exclusive cocktail hour at 6 p.m. that includes a meet-and-greet with the coaches.
