Three Ole Miss Football Games Tabbed 'Must-See' in 2024 SEC Season

Three games on the Ole Miss Rebels' schedule have been tabbed as "must-see" entertainment in the 2024 season.

The Southeastern Conference is a special place with special traditions, and that landscape is expanding with the 2024 football season.

With the addition of the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns to the league this fall, an already-elite makeup of school cultures and programs will only grow stronger...and it's going to make for some must-see television.

That was the subject of a recent story from Athlon Sports where the publication listed 15 "must-see" SEC games on the 2024 schedule. A few of these games feature new teams in the league (like the renewed Texas vs. Texas A&M rivalry), but others have common SEC faces, including three games that will include the Ole Miss Rebels.

Nos. 5, 9 and 13 on the list are games that feature the Rebels, and the first of those games could impact a race to the College Football Playoff.

No. 5 in the pecking order is when the Georgia Bulldogs come to visit the Rebels on Nov. 9. Georgia had its way with Ole Miss last season in Athens, but with this game being in Oxford and the Rebels expected to boast an even better roster in 2024, this matchup is already drawing headlines.

The other two games come against two of the Rebels' biggest rivals: the LSU Tigers (No. 9) and the Mississippi State Bulldogs (No. 13). You can view an excerpt from the LSU analysis below.

9. Ole Miss at LSU (Oct. 12)
Last year's meeting saw 104 points and 1,343 total yards in a 55-49 victory by Ole Miss. The Rebels have high hopes and expectations in '24. Winning in Baton Rouge on Oct. 12 would certainly boost Ole Miss' chances of a CFB Playoff spot. After struggling mightily in Oxford last season, can LSU's defense hold up better against Lane Kiffin's offense?

The Egg Bowl scheduled for Nov. 30 has a new level of interest this season thanks to the Bulldogs' hiring of former Ole Miss offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby to the role of head coach. That paired with what is always a vitriolic matchup in the state of Mississippi makes it a no-brainer addition to this list.
