Spring is upon the Rebel Nation. It’s time to start planning the social calendar, especially for April which will have the start of the 2016 BancorpSouth Rebel Road Trip.
The fifth annual Rebel Road Trip for 2016 kicks off Sunday, April 17, in Atlanta at the College Football Hall of Fame. Through April to July, the tour will cross four states with three new stops this year: Mobile, Alabama and two Mississippi cities: Ripley and Cleveland.
Headlining the tour are Ole Miss football head coach Hugh Freeze and athletic director Ross Bjork. University of Mississippi Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter will join the Ole Miss fans at select stops.
On the Rebel Road Trips the fans can interact with the speakers as they would their fellow members of the Rebel Nation. There will be autographing, photo booths, official merchandise and football posters along with an exciting video of the University of Mississippi. There will also be photo opportunities with the trifecta: the Egg Bowl, the Magnolia Bowl and the Sugar Bowl trophies.
Advance tickets are $20, except for the opening stop at The College Football Hall of Fame which is $25. Tables can also be purchased for $200 to $250 depending on the tour stops. For more info and to purchase tickets, the Ole Miss fans can visit www.rebelroadtrip.com.
Below is the schedule for the 2016 BancorpSouth Rebel Road Trip. I’m looking forward to seeing new and ole Rebel faces along the way. Hotty Toddy y’all!
