By Kevin Kelley -

The Ole Miss Rebels will host the New Mexico State Aggies in 2019 and the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in 2020, the school announced on Friday.

Ole Miss and New Mexico State will meet for only the second time at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford on Nov. 9, 2019. In their first meeting in 2015, the Rebels defeated the Aggies 52-3.

In their first and only meeting on the gridiron in 2001, Ole Miss defeated Middle Tennessee 45-17 in Oxford.

Ole Miss’ non-conference schedule in 2020 is also now tentatively complete. The Rebels will open the season vs. Baylor in the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff in Houston.

The Rebels are also scheduled to host Georgia Southern on Sept. 12 and Southeast Missouri on Sept. 19.
