During the 2014 campaign, Ole Miss wore eight different combinations, twice the number of its previous program high for various apparel looks in a single season.

The Rebels’ familiar navy helmet with a scripted Ole Miss wordmark has been the helmet of choice on Saturdays since 1994. Twelve years earlier, the team’s navy helmet featured a stylized Colonel Reb graphic with a red facemask.

For the first time since 1994, Ole Miss donned powder blue helmets last season against Memphis, honoring the late Chucky Mullins, a former player who was paralyzed during a game in 1989. The Rebels donned the powder blue helmets from 1948-77 and again from 1983-94.

Navy jerseys have been used as the primary home jersey for decades, but an updated red alternate is also a popular choice and was worn five times (compared to only four for navy) during the 2014 campaign. Prior to the 2013 season, Nike updated the Rebels’ white road jerseys with navy accents instead of red. Pants were altered as well with a REBELS wordmark down the leg.
