ATLANTA (AP) - Long an also-ran in the mighty Southeastern Conference, Ole Miss is looking like a school no longer content with the status quo.

First, the No. 18 Rebels must get by a team that knows a thing or two about busting up the establishment.

Ole Miss opens the season Thursday night against Boise State, long known as the BCS Buster. This is the first of two Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games at the Georgia Dome, followed Saturday by Alabama vs. West Virginia.

The Rebels are a team on the rise under coach Hugh Freeze, who has been able to land big-time recruits and guided his team to wins over Texas and LSU last season.

Ole Miss still must prove it can compete on a regular basis with SEC powerhouses such as Alabama and Auburn.
