Sports Management Degree Guide recently named the most amazing college football stadium in all 50 states.
Images of a crisp, cool autumn afternoon in Oxford conjures up memories of past victories by the Rebel football squad. Most people have Oxford, MS as one of their destination stops for college football. From The Square to The Grove, Oxford is something special.
Oxford has received many awards and accolades for its beauty and charm, and this is just another one to add to the growing list.
Sports Management Degree Guide recently made a list of the most amazing stadium in each state, and named Vaught-Hemingway Stadium as the most amazing stadium in Mississippi.
Here is what the site had to say about Vaught-Hemingway.
"Autumn-time Saturdays in Oxford, Mississippi are devoted to Ole Miss and college football. The parties and tailgating start early, and by game time, hundreds of tents, grills, tailgates, and lawn chairs can be seen for acres around the main stadium. The Vaught-Hemingway Stadium is easily one of the most iconic in the SEC (and even the country). The north end zone is home to the eighth largest scoreboard in all of college football, while the north end zone has uniquely placed luxury boxes and suites that make for a terrific view if you can snag one. On game day, the stadium is known for being incredibly rowdy, and in 2016, the volume is expected to escalate even more as 5,000 additional seats are being added."
Remember the cool and breezy autumn afternoon in October 2014? The one where Ole Miss defeated Alabama. Remember the chilly November’s where Ole Miss defeated in-state rival Mississippi State. These events are what makes Vaught-Hemingway beautiful. It reminds us of the jubilation we felt as fans of the Ole Miss football team.
Vaught-Hemingway is the most amazing stadium in the state of Mississippi, if not the country. It may not be the biggest, it may not be the nicest, but it is ours.
