MACON, GA -- Another major announcement arrived from Mercer Athletic Director Jim Cole on Friday as the Bears Football Program will open the 2023 season at Ole Miss.

The matchup with the Rebels pits the Bears against their fourth SEC opponent since resurrecting the program in 2013.

Mercer will face Alabama and Auburn in 2017 with another showdown with the Tide coming in 2021. The Bears face Vanderbilt in 2020.

Future key non-conference games for Mercer include Yale (2018, '21, '22) and Memphis (2018).

Mercer finished the 2016 season 6-5 with a 4-4 mark in the Southern Conference. The Bears open the 2017 season August 31 at home against Jacksonville.
