Those wishing to use city taxi services to get to the game will be dropped off and picked up at the intersection of Old Taylor Road and University Avenue. No other location on city streets will be allowed for pick ups and drop offs via taxis. If one disrupts traffic, a ticket will be issued.

Backpacks or track bags are not permitted on the shuttles or inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The clear bag policy has been implemented by Ole Miss this season.
