Football season is still a few months away, but kickoff times and television details are already being released for select games, including some that feature the Ole Miss Rebels.

First reported by Brett McMurphy of the Action Network before the school's official announcement, Ole Miss' road trip to face the Wake Forest Demon Deacons will kick off at 5:30 p.m. CT on the CW. This was one of a handful of games that McMurphy provided kickoff times for on Thursday.

Ole Miss and Wake Forest have only squared off twice all-time, and the Rebels are winless in those two games against the Demon Deacons. Wake claimed the 2006 meeting in Oxford by a final score of 27-3, and when the two teams faced off in 2008 in Winston-Salem, the Deacons claimed a narrow 30-28 win.

These two teams will face off in Week 3 of the college football season, directly behind the Rebels' first two games against Furman and Middle Tennessee, both of which come in Oxford. This matchup marks Ole Miss' Power Five non-conference game for the year along with its first road trip, and it will return home in Weeks 4 and 5 to face Georgia Southern and Kentucky, respectively.

Speaking of Furman and Middle Tennessee, those kickoff times were announced on Thursday as well. The Rebels will host Furman at 6 p.m. CT to open the season on Aug. 31, and it can be seen on SEC Network+ and ESPN+. For the game against the Blue Raiders, the Rebels will kick off at 3:15 p.m. CT with an airing on SEC Network.

The Egg Bowl has also moved off of Thanksgiving Day for the 2024 season, and you can read more about that change here.
