The Purdue Boilermakers and the Ole Miss Rebels have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2033 and 2034, per a report by Mike Carmin of the Journal & Courier.
In the first game of the series, Purdue will travel to take on Ole Miss at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Miss., on September 10, 2033. The Boilermakers will host the Rebels the following season at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Ind., on September 9, 2034, according to the report.
Purdue and Ole Miss have only met once on the gridiron. In that contest way back in 1929, the Boilermakers defeated the Rebels 27-7 in West Lafayette.
The home-and-home series is the first non-conference contest scheduled for both schools for both the 2033 and 2034 seasons. The series also satisfies the strength of schedule requirement for each team, which is a mandate that each Big Ten and SEC team play a minimum of one non-conference contest against a Power Five team each season.
Purdue now has 18 future contests scheduled against Power Five teams — at Boston College (2020), Oregon State (home in 2021, away in 2024), Notre Dame (away in 2021, 2025, and 2027; home in 2024, 2026, and 2028), Syracuse (away in 2022, home in 2023), at Virginia Tech (2023), Wake Forest (home in 2026, away in 2028), at Vanderbilt (2029), at TCU (2030), and Ole Miss (away in 2033, home in 2034).
The Ole Miss Rebels have eight scheduled contests against teams from the Power Five — Baylor (2020 in Houston), Louisville (2021 in Atlanta), Georgia Tech (2022 away, 2023 home), Wake Forest (2024 away, 2025 home), and Purdue (2033 home, 2034 away).
