Music City Bowl 2013: Ole Miss vs. Georgia Tech

In the 2013 Music City Bowl, the Ole Miss Rebels will take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

After landing a top five recruiting class and starting the season with a dramatic come from behind 39-35 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores, hopes were high for the Ole Miss Rebels. However, the Rebels had an up-and-down season. They started 3-0, then lost three straight, then won four straight before losing each of their final two games, including a heart breaking 17-10 overtime loss to their bitter rivals, the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving night. A win over the LSU Tigers was the highlight of the Rebels’ season.

It was also another disappointing season for the Yellow Jackets, who went 7-5 and finished fourth in what was a very winnable ACC Coastal Division. Like the Rebels, the Yellow Jackets got off to a 3-0 start before losing three straight games. The last time the Yellow Jackets took the field, they blew a 20-0 lead and lost to the Georgia Bulldogs 41-34 in double overtime.

Both teams would like to get the bitter taste of losing to a rival out of their mouth.
