University of Mississippi spokesman Mitchell Diggs said Wednesday that a 60-member game day committee has voted unanimously against charging people to claim spots for on-campus tailgating.

The committee says fans can start setting up tents at 10 p.m. on Fridays. Some had been arriving as early as 7 a.m. Fridays to set up for Saturday games, and faculty members and administrators worried that was interrupting the academic day.

For most home games, the Grove at Ole Miss is packed with thousands of fans who set up everything from simple picnics to elaborate spreads.
