Sports: The Nutt vs. Arkansas story line to culminate Oct 25
When Houston Nutt took the podium at SEC Media Days for the first time as Ole Miss coach, many in attendance wanted to ask him about his first game.
Not his first game against Memphis, when the Rebels open the season in Oxford on Aug. 30, but his first game against Arkansas, where he’ll coach in his old stadium from the opposing sideline.
The SEC West’s other rematch, when Alabama coach Nick Saban visits his former team, LSU, for the first time, will likely cause more of a stir on the national scene. But in Northeast Mississippi and the immediate surrounding area, interest will be piqued when Nutt, who led the Razorbacks to 75 wins in 10 years, coaches against them for the first time on Oct. 25 at Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville.
