The Ole Miss football team released a “Game of Thrones” hype video Sunday on Twitter.
The video was released just hours before the season 7 of the critically acclaimed HBO series.

In the video, Cersei Lannister talks over the video about her “enemies” to the east (Alabama), west (Texas A&M), south (LSU) and north (Memphis), with footage showing a different rival school in that direction as she lists off each bearing. Upon finishing, she says they will defeat whoever stands in their way.
The video then breaks off into a highlight montage of Ole Miss football highlights before Jon Snow says “the great war is here” and “Ole Miss football is coming” is flashed onto the screen.
Ole Miss football, though, will not be sitting on the Iron Throne at the end of the 2017 season. Thanks to its self-imposed bowl ban, it is ineligible to win the national championship.
Ole Miss opens its 2017 season against South Alabama on Sept. 2 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT on ESPNU.
The Rebels were predicted to finish last in the SEC West by the media at last week’s SEC Media Days.
North Carolina, Arizona and Ohio State also have released “Game of Thrones” hype videos.
