In the past, Ole Miss was known for its incredible Rebels football team and exciting tailgating events. With the rise of their new arena, The Pavilion, the Ole Miss basketball team aims for the same legacy. Built in 2016, The Pavilion replaced the old "Tad Pad" arena, which had been around since 1966. The modern arena showcases one of the largest video scoreboards in college sports and features free Wi-Fi and electrical plug-in ports to charge electronic devices. Mimicking an entertainment center and not a basketball arena, The Pavilion succeeds at providing an excellent game-day experience. Grab your The Pavilion at Ole Miss tickets at StubHub.
