The 1962 Ole Miss Rebel football team certainly has a lot to celebrate. Coached by the legendary John Vaught, the 1962 team not only claimed a 10-0 season, they also brought home an SEC crown and a national championship title, defeating Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl 17-13.
The Rebels 1962 team also holds the honor of being the only football team in Ole Miss history to complete the season untied and undefeated. For his efforts, Vaught was named SEC Coach of the Year for the sixth time that same year.
Glynn Griffing and Louis Guy both served as co-captains of the 1962 Ole Miss Rebels.
The team will hold its 50-year reunion Sept. 14-15 at The Inn at Ole Miss. A reception and dinner for team members and their guests will be held on Sept. 14.
At 10:30 a.m. on Sept 15, members of the undefeated and untied Ole Miss football team of 1962 will recall their triumphs during an open-panel discussion with ESPN writer Wright Thompson in the Overby Center. This event is free and open to the public.
The reunion weekend festivities will conclude on Sept. 15 with a picnic at 1 p.m. on the Triplett Alumni Center front lawn.
