OXFORD, Miss. – Due to the threat of Hurricane Harvey impacting the Gulf Coast region, Ole Miss’ scheduled match Sunday night at Louisiana-Lafayette has been cancelled. As part of the schedule change, the Rebels will now host Lamar at 2 p.m. Sunday in Oxford.
Harvey, a strengthening Hurricane, is expected to bring inclement weather to the entire region over the next few days. Lafayette, which sits roughly 70 miles inland, is expected to receive large rainfall amounts, which ultimately resulted in the cancellation of the game.
Due to the late change, the game will not be broadcast on SEC Network +. Admission to Sunday’s match, and all Ole Miss home games, is free.
