My first experience as a student in Vaught-Hemingway was October 19, 2013, when Ole Miss beat then – No.6 LSU 27-24. The following season, in 2014, ESPN’s College GameDay came to Oxford for the first time. Well-known actress Octavia Spencer led the crowd in the “Hotty Toddy” chant inside the stadium before Ole Miss beat then – No.1 Alabama 23-17. Both experiences in the stadium left a lasting impression on me. There is nothing more exciting than ‘locking the Vaught’ and cheering on the Rebels with 60,000 other Ole Miss fans on a crisp fall night in Vaught-Hemingway stadium. Hotty Toddy!
