Ole Miss has been home to an artificial field surface since the mid 2000’s but that all will change next season.

With the bowling in of the North end zone, a natural grass surface will follow. Field Turf began to catch on in the early 2000’s, following a redesign from the original Astro Turf used in the late 1960’s to the mid 1980’s. Jason List of the Ole Miss Athletic Department posted an update, as half of the artificial surface has already been removed, as the 2016 season grows closer.
