Louisville vs. Ole Miss Set For 2021 Chick-Fil-A-Bowl

Unless both programs somehow manage to sneak into the College Football Playoff in the next few seasons, they’ll meet for the first time in 2021.

Ole Miss and Louisville have been selected to participate in the Chick-fil-A game in 2021.

By the time they meet, it will be the 14th time that the ACC and the SEC will have met in the game.

It’s official! @UofLFootball & @OleMissFB will face off in their 1st ever match-up at #CFAKickoff 2021.

They’ve met ten times through 2017, with the SEC holding a 9-1 advantage thanks in large part to Alabama’s perfect 5-0 record in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, all against ACC opponents.

The game will be played in Atlanta in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium but to be the home of the Atlanta Falcons. The first game was held there earlier this season and pitted the Crimson Tide against Florida State.

The winning side will receive the Old Leather Helmet Trophy. However, with an annual draw averaging nearly 70,000 people on a neutral site, playing in front of an NFL sized crowd is all the incentive the players would likely need.
