Ole Miss was on the short end of a crazy game with Alabama on Saturday, but win or lose, this one went down in the record books for the Rebels.
The Rebels and Crimson Tide set a state of Mississippi record by piling 66,176 people into Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to witness Alabama’s 47-43 win over Ole Miss.

Ole Miss completed some renovations to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium during the off-season, which allowed the school to set a stadium and state record for single-game attendance.
The Rebels rank ahead of in-state rival Mississippi State in SEC stadium capacity thanks to the changes.
