Ole Miss will hold its annual Meet the Rebels Day on Saturday at the team’s indoor practice facility in the Manning Center.

The school announced earlier this week that the Rebels’ new on-field mascot will be unveiled as part of the festivities, which will run for two hours beginning at 1 p.m. Ole Miss officially adopted the landshark as its official mascot back in October.

Admission is free while autograph lines will be first-come, first-serve. Here’s some more information pertaining to this year’s event:
