GulfLive.com is reporting that a College World Series t-shirt for sale in Omaha reads “Mississippi State Rebels.”

Apparently, a huge blunder by one T-shirt distributor has gone viral on the Internet after a photo of one of the shirts was taken.

The Mississippi State mascot is the Bulldogs. The Rebels name belongs to the University of Mississippi.

MSU faces its first opponent Oregon State in Game 1 on Saturday in Omaha. The game will be broadcast on ESPN 2 at 2:00 PM CST.
