MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The SEC joins the Fray Saturday, with the COVID-delayed kickoff to its season featuring a big matchup down in Oxford with the Ole Miss Rebels hosting fifth ranked Florida.

And the Rebels will hit the field in style.

Ole Miss will be rocking the powder blue jerseys for the first time in more than 20 years.

They were originally worn from 19-48 to 19-77, and then again from 1983 to 1994...

Now they are back by popular demand.

Head Coach Lane Kiffin says they’re the players' favorite jerseys.

Ole Miss kicks off against Florida in Oxford Saturday at 11 a.m. at Vaught Hemingway Stadium.
