UPDATE: Rebels appear headed for another Cotton Bowl

OXFORD – Ole Miss could be headed to the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic for a second consecutive year.

Ole Miss, which finished its season 8-4, should know something official later today.
ESPN’s Ivan Maisel sent out a Twitter message reporting that Ole Miss is headed to the Cotton Bowl, and the Tulsa World reported that the Rebels will meet Oklahoma State in the Jan. 2 game.
A meeting is set for noon Tuesday for officials representing the Bowl Championship Series games – the Rose, Orange, Fiesta and Sugar bowls – to discuss potential lineups. Non-BCS games typically fall in line soon after the the BCS schedule is complete.
