OXFORD, MS- (WMC-TV) - In just a few days, the streets of Oxford will be packed with Ole Miss fans heading to the football game. That is no different than years past, but one thing that will be different is the parking situation on game day.
A change in policy has Ole Miss students irritated and a lot of people talking.
If you want to park on campus for the game, you will need a parking pass, otherwise, you will only be allowed to drop people off or unload for a tailgate. First come, first serve is no longer an option.
In addition to that new policy, only students living on campus will be allowed to park on campus.
City leaders say the change in policy is to clear sidewalks for people with disabilities. In years past, they say, cars blocked sidewalks and curbs.
"We're going to tow your vehicle if it's in a no parking area or parked illegally," said Jimmy Allgood, City of Oxford.
