It’s official: No. 16 Ole Miss (17–2) has a celebrity bandwagon.
On Sunday evening, Rebels senior forward Murphy Holloway tweeted out the following.
Just got the word from MORGAN FREEMAN that he will be at out game TUESDAY against UK #RebelNation

The iconic and Academy Award-winning actor, best known as Red from The Shawshank Redemption, was raised in Greenwood, MS — roughly an hour-and-a-half southwest of Ole Miss’ Oxford campus — and makes his current home in Charleston, MS. He’s even lent his famous voice to promotional ads for the school.
If any celebrity has reason to jump on the Rebels bandwagon, it’s Freeman. Now if there were only a way for Ole Miss to convince him to introduce the Rebels’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the defending national champs.
