Large crowds are expected in Oxford this weekend as Ole Miss takes on Southern Illinois Salukis Saturday afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

People are encouraged to use the free shuttles and buses around town to get to campus to watch the game.

Oxford-University Transit will have two buses running every 15 minutes starting at 6 a.m. The buses will pick up from the Jackson Avenue Center near the Old Oxford Mall and stop about two hours after the game. The university is funding the game-day shuttle services.

The OUT shuttles are free of charge; however, transit officials ask everyone to visit the OUT website, to read the rules of what items are allowed or not allowed to be carried onto the buses, including backpacks, track bags, tents, pets and large coolers over 40 quarts.

Ole Miss Athletics has contracted with Cline Buses to operate more shuttles around Oxford. Buses will run from the South Oxford Campus, the former Baptist hospital off South Lamar Boulevard and the FNC Park, off Old Sardis Road, beginning at 10 a.m. And ending two hours after the game. There is no charge to ride the shuttle or park in the lot to use the shuttle.

The South Oxford Campus will also have several ADA parking spaces and an ADA shuttle.

Oxford’s iconic double-decker buses will be running Saturday afternoon giving free rides to the Ole Miss Rebels game.

The Double Decker buses will run from the Square to campus and back before the game, which begins at 3 p.m., at no charge, starting at 10 a.m. and for two hours after the game ends. The bus picks up from in front of city hall and drops off at the old Observatory by the Grove.
