Vaught-Hemingway Stadium is the home of Ole Miss football and has been since the facility opened in 1915. The stadium is named for two people. Judge William Hemingway, a professor of law at Ole Miss, was the stadium’s original namesake when it opened. In 1982 the university added Johnny Vaught to the stadium’s name. Vaught served as the Rebels’ head coach from 1947 to 1970, and again on an interim basis in 1973. He won 190 games and led the Rebels to national titles in 1959, 1960 and 1962 (the 1960 title is considered a share of the “recognized national title” by the NCAA for that season, along with Minnesota.
