OXFORD, Miss. -- As Ole Miss welcomes the nation’s top-ranked team to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Saturday, fans should be aware of new policies and special presentations that will help make for an exciting gameday atmosphere against Auburn.

Kickoff of the contest, which is televised by ESPN2, is set for 5 p.m. CT, and the official fan color of the game is blue. The MDOT parking lot opens at 10 a.m., and the Rebels’ traditional walk though The Grove will be at 2:40 p.m.


Due to the high demand for tickets, temporary seating is being added in the lower areas of the stadium. The seats, which cost $55 each, will be from goalline to goalline on the east and west sides of the stadium and at the bottom of the south endzone.  

Current season ticket holders have priority on these platform seats through Tuesday at 4 p.m. CT, at which point they will become available to the general public. Tickets may be purchased online at the ticket site or by calling 662-915-7167.


Ole Miss encourages a family-friendly environment where both adults and children can dress up for Halloween and cheer on the Rebels. In order to maintain a safe and secure event, we ask that fans refrain from costumes that may be considered degrading in any way and refrain from wearing any items that portrays other fans in a stereotyped way.  

All costumes must not impair another fan’s view or enjoyment of the game and clothing must fit within the boundary of an individual’s ticketed seat location (width of seat). No storage of costumes will be permitted. All costumes and props must comply with NCAA and Vaught-Hemingway security regulations and procedures. Additionally, toy guns or weapons, costumes with wiring or electrical requirements, live creatures, alcohol and other liquids, or nudity will not be permitted.

Masks or any other head gear that covers facial features (eyes, nose, lips, etc.) are not permitted. Guests are prohibited from concealing their facial identity.  Vaught-Hemingway staff reserves the right to refuse admission to any person whose costume does not comply with these guidelines or poses a danger to other fans.


Kicking off the halftime entertainment will be what is believed to be a first for college football: the premiere of a 3-D video produced in-house by a university. A total of 60,000 3-D glasses will be distributed in the stadium, and the 90-second video, which has been an ongoing project for University Brand Services, will commence immediately following the second quarter. Matthew Graves, a filmmaker in Ole Miss Media and Documentary Projects, led the 3-D project and said he wanted to produce something that would captivate people in both 2-D and 3-D.

Following the video board show will be a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ole Miss’ 1960 national title team. All-American quarterback Jake Gibbs will be among the members of the championship squad that will be recognized on the field.

In honor of the 50th anniversary, Saturday’s game program will be a special 1960 edition, with the cover a replica of the Rebels’ game programs from that era. The publication will be first available at Thursday’s radio show “RebTalk with Coach Houston Nutt.” The show is held each Thursday at 7 p.m. live from the Inn at Ole Miss, and admission is free. Visit to send in a question for Nutt through the Cellular South Coach’s Connection. Player guests this week include George Helow, Ted Laurent, Lawon Scott and Bradley Sowell.


As the 2010-11 basketball seasons inches closer, fans will get their opportunity to “Meet the Rebels” Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in The Grove prior to the football game. Men’s coach Andy Kennedy and women’s coach Renee Ladner, along with their players and staffs, will be available for autographs in front of the Student Union. Ole Miss Hoops posters and schedule cards will be given away.

In addition, the Rebel men’s basketball and the men’s tennis teams will be honored during the game for capturing SEC Western Division crowns last season in their respective sports.
