Bowden, along with Ole Miss head coach, Hugh Freeze, will be the featured speakers for the event, and all proceeds will go directly to support the Ole Miss FCA chapter. The breakfast will be held at the Manning Center (formerly known as the Indoor Practice Facility) from 8:30-10:15 a.m. Visit for tickets.

Ole Miss FCA campus director Todd Johnson told the press, “I see the upcoming FCA Breakfast as a great opportunity to be encouraged by two outstanding men and coaches who not only have a faith in God, but try to live out their faith daily to impact those around them for good. It will hopefully be a great way to start the day before we play Florida in basketball on national TV and then have a baseball game that afternoon. We believe this FCA Breakfast could become an annual event and be significant in helping fund our campus ministry.”
