John H. Vaught

Vaught, Bryant meet for the first time as head coaches in 1947

The Homecoming game on Sept. 20, 1947, would be the first time Ole Miss football coach John H. Vaught and Kentucky coach Paul “Bear” Bryant would meet as head coaches. Over the next 25 seasons, they would meet again and again as head coaches in the SEC. Oxford and Ole Miss historian Jack Lamar Mayfield takes a closer look at that 1947 game. (October 1, 2010, Page 2B)
