The Ole Miss Rebels football program represents the University of Mississippi, also known as "Ole Miss.” The Rebels compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference. As of 2020, the team is coached by Lane Kiffin.
Founded in 1893 as the state's first football team, Ole Miss has won six Southeastern Conference titles and three national titles. The Rebels posted their 600th win on September 27, 2008, when they defeated the Florida Gators 31–30.
In 2017, the NCAA vacated 33 of the team's victories — nearly 5 percent of its total wins at the time — and levied a two-year ban on post-season play as punishment for recruiting and academic violations under head coaches Houston Nutt and Hugh Freeze. Yet, most people still remember watching the team win those games.
