Ole Miss is headed to New York to face one of college basketball’s bluebloods.

The Rebels will travel to Syracuse to take on the top-seeded Orange in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament on Saturday. Tip from the Carrier Dome is set for 10 a.m. CT.

Syracuse (19-14) announced the date and time following its 90-77 first-round win over UNC Greensboro on Wednesday, a game that was postponed because of wintry weather in the Northeast.

Ole Miss (21-13) advanced with a 91-83 win at Monmouth on Tuesday.
