Ole Miss v BCS history

A few days ago CBS rated our schedule as the third hardest in the country. Since then there has been some discussion on the message boards about our out of conference opponents. Should we schedule hard non-conference foes when our conference is arguably the best in the land? Will it bring us more national attention if we schedule teams from other BCS conferences?

All this talk made me curious. I wanted to check out our all time records versus teams from the BCS conferences. How have we fared in the past?

You had to bring up that 1991 Gator Bowl Game against Michigan.

That one still hurts. Like the blog!
