Residents of Mississippi, Memphis preparing to face home state schools

WJTV – You can find quite a few Memphis natives on the Ole Miss roster and plenty of Mississippians on the Tigers’ roster.

It’s part of what adds some more juice to a rivalry where the two schools are separated by about an hour-and-a-half long drive. The two teams being ranked right now doesn’t hurt either.
