Ole Miss reveals uniform combo for Alabama game
Ole Miss brought out the powder blue helmets for the first two games of the Lane Kiffin era. The Rebels are switching things up, however, for Saturday’s contest with No. 2 Alabama.
The official Twitter account for the Ole Miss football team revealed the Rebels will sport “night navy” when hosting the Crimson Tide on Saturday (assuming the weather cooperates). Lane Kiffin’s squad will wear both navy helmets and jerseys for the game.
Kickoff in Oxford for Saturday’s was originally scheduled for 5 p.m. local time but moved to 6:30 p.m. CT due to the projected track of Hurricane Delta.
“The best-case scenario, talking to meteorologists, was the later in the day the better. So, we’ll see,” Nick Saban said of the time change on his weekly radio show, per Charlie Potter of 247Sports.
The game is set to air on ESPN.
