OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA)--One of the most heavily attended games in recent memory is when Ole Miss played Texas last year.
Thousands of fans were packed onto the campus creating a nightmare for those searching for a place to park.
This fall, the university is trying something new to make it easier to get around on campus.
"We've got a parking plan in place for the 2013 football season. In order to get onto campus, you need to have either a parking pass issued by athletics or a parking pass issued by parking and transportation for students," said Dan Dowd, the assistant athletic director for Annual Giving at Ole Miss.
Dowd says existing donors will get first priority for the passes as of April 30th.
A sizeable donation will ensure an on-campus pass, according to university officials.
Next, the passes will be sold to season ticket holders if they don't sell out.
Remaining passes will be sold on a game-by-game basis.
There are some 6,200 available parking spaces on campus.
Residential, student, Greek parking are exempt. The Grove Society or the Inn at Ole Miss are good as well.
But, all other vehicles that don't have one of the university passes will be directed to off-campus lots.
Dowd says there will be shuttles running before, during, and after games to designated parking lots.
As you might imagine, football is King of Sports at the University of Mississippi.
University officials say the new policy will make it easier to control parking and provide better access the disabled.
But some of the Ole Miss faithful are not happy with the idea of purchasing parking passes for football games.
Many are already voicing disapproval online.
"I think it's good to raise money," said Mike Cowson of Oxford. "But it's going to put a lot of people that have been going for a long time and parking real close and tailgating out of the loop. Because the parking passes closer to the Grove and the Circle are outrageous."
