It was an incredible night for the Ole Miss Rebels as they upset Dan Mullen and Mississippi State in Starkville.
Ole Miss built a big lead after the third quarter and then was able to hold off the Bulldogs in the final minutes. Immediately after the final horn, the Rebels sprinted to the end zone to celebrate with the Egg Bowl trophy.

It’s Ole Miss’ third Egg Bowl win in its last four games vs Mississippi State.
The Bulldogs were without starting quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, who suffered a gruesome leg injury in the first quarter, but a win is a win — especially in a rivalry game like this one.
