It’s Easter Sunday, and teams, coaches, and players from across the SEC have taken to social media to wish one another well throughout the holiday. Nobody told Mississippi State defensive end Jeffery Simmons he couldn’t have some fun with his team’s arch rival, however.
As kids (and adults, too, in all likelihood) participate in Easter egg hunts around the country, Simmons combined everyone’s favorite holiday activity with the official name of the Ole Miss-Mississippi State rivalry to give Rebel fans a quick reminder of where the Egg Bowl trophy currently resides:
Me: Moma, I found the egg!
Moma: Where is it now?
Me: Where it belong! pic.twitter.com/UEYFFsUI0F

Simmons’ Bulldogs crushed Ole Miss in the most recent edition of the game, winning 55-20 in Oxford. Simmons, a former five-star recruit, had one tackle and one QB hurry in the game.
