Ole Miss soccer will be featured three times on national TV this fall, the Southeastern Conference announced Wednesday in its release of the SEC Network broadcast schedule.

All three nationally televised matches come on the road as the Rebels will take on Florida, Arkansas and Mississippi State in front of a national audience.

Ole Miss kicks off SEC play Thursday, Sept. 14 in Gainesville, Florida on SEC Network at 6 p.m. CT as part of the weekend road trip that also includes a non-conference matchup at Stetson. Ten days later (Sept. 24), the Rebels visit Fayetteville, Arkansas for a Sunday afternoon matchup with the Razorbacks.

The final TV game of the regular season comes in Starkville on Sunday, Oct. 22, which features the annual battle for the Magnolia Cup. The Rebels have maintained possession of the Cup since 2013 with three-straight wins in the rivalry series (no game in 2015).
