Ole Miss rejects tailgating fee proposal

OXFORD — Ole Miss fans won’t have to pay a tailgate tax for the upcoming football season, but they will have a tighter timeframe for setting up their party tents.

University of Mississippi spokesman Mitchell Diggs said Wednesday that a 60-member game day committee has voted unanimously against charging people to claim spots for on-campus tailgating.

The committee says fans can start setting up tents at 10 p.m. on Fridays.
