Enhancements to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at Ole Miss are nearing completion.

Thanks in part to private donations, the traditional red brick feel throughout the Ole Miss campus will now make its way inside the stadium.

A brand new team meeting room is also under construction at the north end of the Indoor Practice Facility.

In addition, a new game day locker room is also under construction just off the playing field.  Since 2004, the Rebels weren't able to quickly get into the locker room after pre-game warm-ups and at halftime.

Instead of walking just off the field into a locker room like their opponents, the Ole Miss players and coaches had to walk a solid three minutes uphill through a tunnel from the field to their locker room. The walk, as crazy as it sounds, could be mentally tiring, especially for the lineman.

Here's a glimpse into the new enhancements at Ole Miss.
