The Ole Miss Rebels and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2024 and 2025.
In the first game of the series, Ole Miss will travel to take on Wake Forest at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, NC on Sept. 14, 2024. The Rebels will then host the second and final game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford on Sept. 13, 2025.
Ole Miss and Wake Forest have met twice previously in a home-and-home series. The Demon Deacons lead the series 2-0 after winning 27-3 in Oxford in 2006 and 30-28 at home in 2008.
The series will satisfy the “strength of schedule” mandate for both Ole Miss and Wake Forest in 2024 and 2025. The mandate, which begins in the SEC in 2016 and in the ACC in 2017, calls for each conference member to play at least one non-conference game against another team from a power five conference.
Ole Miss is also slated to face Georgia Tech in 2022-23, but currently has no announced power five opponents from 2016 through 2021.
Wake Forest now has a power five opponent on the schedule in 2017 (at Notre Dame), 2018 (Notre Dame), 2020 (Notre Dame), 2023 (at Notre Dame) and 2024-25 (Ole Miss).
