In a light practice in shorts and t-shirts, the Ole Miss Rebels conducted their final preparation at Cowboys Stadium for the 74th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic.

The Rebels (8-4, 4-4 SEC) spent the 60-minute morning walk-through putting the final touches on their game plan for their January 2 matchup against the No. 21 Oklahoma State Cowboys (9-3, 6-2 Big 12). 

“It was good today. We’ve had an excellent week and now it’s time to roll,” said Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt. “Our guys are excited. It’s been a wonderful week to be able to experience this. It’s just been awesome.”

Ole Miss will enjoy a relaxing remainder of its New Year’s Day before departing for the stadium for the final time tomorrow morning.
