Dec. 4, 2000
Mississippi will bring its four-game bowl winning streak to Nashville for the Music City Bowl.
Music City Bowl officials announced Sunday that Ole Miss (7-4) will face West Virginia (6-5) on Dec. 28 at Adelphia Coliseum. It will be the first meeting between the two schools, and the final game for longtime Mountaineers coach Don Nehlen.
This is the fourth straight season that Ole Miss will play in a bowl game.
Ole Miss, like West Virginia, will be playing in the 3-year-old bowl for the first time.
Having the opportunity to come to Nashville is great, not only for our players, but I know our fans and students will be excited about going to such a quality bowl and city,'' Ole Miss coach David Cutcliffe. We are looking forward to playing an opponent like West Virginia.''
Nehlen recorded his 200th career victory earlier this season, and has announced his retirement at the conclusion of the season.
A matchup with an SEC team like Ole Miss will be a challenge, but we are looking forward to it,'' Nehlen said.
The Mountaineers play in the Big East.
The Music City Bowl will be televised by ESPN and tickets are available through Ticketmaster. Ticket prices range from $25-$60.
