What do Eli Manning, Peria Jerry, Dexter McCluster, and Ashlee Palmer all have in common? Yes, that’s right: all of these NFL stars are University of Mississippi alumni, they were all Ole Miss Rebels.
The Ole Miss Rebels, with their striped, red, white, and blue uniforms and their mascot Colonel Reb, are easily one of the most iconic teams in NCAA football. The rivalries between the Rebels and the Arkansas Razorbacks, LSU Tigers, Memphis Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tigers, and Vanderbilt Commodores are some of the most hotly contested in all of college football.
The rivalry between the Ole Miss Rebels and cross state rivals The Mississippi State Bulldogs is one of the longest uninterrupted rivalries in all of sports. The two teams have been battling for gridiron bragging rights in the magnolia state since 1901.
Ole Miss Rebels fans are also an important part of what makes college football great (and better, arguably, than the National Football League). Every Sunday the center of the University of Mississippi campus becomes a sea of red, white, and blue tents as as upwards of 25,000 fans set up what is known as ‘The Grove’. This tradition goes back to the 1950s, and has been described as the Holy Grail of tailgating.
If you can’t make it down to ‘The Grove’ or to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississipi to catch the Rebels in action live, there are lots of ways to watch any Ole Miss Rebels football game, whenever you want to, wherever in the world you are.

Reddit’s College Football Page
As everybody knows, when it comes to live streaming pages, the landscape is changing all the time and websites come and go. If you want to know what the ‘go to’ free streaming site is at any given time, Reddit’s College Football subreddit is the place to go. A good time to check is one hour before kick-off time. Bare in mind, however, that some of the streaming sites suggested by the redditors are full of irritating pop-ups and malware.
This subreddit is also a great resource all year round for everything related to the Ole Miss rebels and other teams in college footballs. People are always posting links to cool youtube documentaries and other college football centered links.
