On Thursday, Ole Miss and Cal agreed to play a home and home series that will take place in 2017 and 2019, according to ESPN.
The Pac-12 vs. SEC showdown will begin on Sept. 16, 2017, in Berkeley, California, before shifting to Oxford, Mississippi, on Sept. 21, 2019. It will be the first such meeting between schools on the football field in their history.
For Ole Miss, the game fulfills an SEC obligation to schedule at least one nonconference game against an opponent from a Power 5 conference. Cal does not have any such scheduling requirement under Pac-12 rules.
Cal was originally schedule to play Auburn in 2019, but will push back the match-up with the Tigers to 2020 and 2021.
