Ole Miss student stands in for tailgating group

Ole Miss junior Jessica Bunch began reserving a tailgating spot for Seven South Tailgating since 11 a.m. Friday and stayed to protect her stake until 9 p.m. when tailgaters were allowed to bring in tents and other supplies. Regular tailgating groups frequently hire stand-ins like Bunch to keep spots for them until they are able to arrive in Oxford on Friday night. Bunch has been working in The Grove, reserving tailgating spots for the past two seasons and making $8 an hour.
