Mississippi’s last win in Tuscaloosa came in 1988, when the Rebels donned powder blue helmets with white jerseys and grey pants during a 22-12 victory.

That same combo will return for Saturday night’s showdown at Alabama.

For the first time since 1994, the Rebels sported the 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.
