It’s a good Sunday for Ole Miss women’s soccer

Ole Miss women’s soccer has been on a roll in recent years, attracting crowds of 1,000 or more on a routine basis and delivering superlative play in the rugged Southeastern Conference.

But competing with football for attention in the fall is always challenging and this off-weekend for Rebel football presents a unique opportunity for Ole Miss women’s soccer.

The soccer Rebels host No. 16 Florida today at 5 p.m. in a televised game on SEC Network) Coming off three wins in the past four games, including a 2-1 win at Alabama this week when a pair of freshman led the way, the Ole Miss soccer team is entering the home stretch of the season on a roll.

Sunday’s game against ranked Florida is important for positioning in conference standings heading into the league’s annual tournament held in Orange Beach in a few weeks.

There’s no better time than this open Ole Miss football weekend to enjoy Sunday afternoon’s fall weather and root for Ole Miss soccer.

The first 150 fans at the stadium will receive Ole Miss soccer ThunderStix and there’s a good bet that all who attend will find the competition and atmosphere worth the time and effort of getting there.
