No. 20 Ole Miss plays host to Mississippi State on Thanksgiving night in the annual Egg Bowl between two hostile in-state rivals that seems to always produce excitement. The Rebels are coming off a very disappointing 42-27 loss at Arkansas in a game that put a huge dent in their quest to make a New Year’s Six bowl for the second straight season. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, cruised past East Tennessee State in 56-7 tuneup to get set for Thursday’s battle.
This is a game that once saw former Rebels receiver Elijah Moore pretend to pee like a dog with four seconds left which was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. The 15-yard penalty pushed the extra point back, Luke Logan missed and the Bulldogs held on to a 1-point win.
Will the Egg Bowl deliver the perfect Thanksgiving night dessert again? Let’s break down the game and make a pick straight up and against the spread.

Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State: Need to know
Will Rogers’ big stage: Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers leads the SEC in passing at 315.8 yards per game but is 13th among qualifying quarterbacks in yards per attempt (6.6). That’s common for signal-callers in a Mike Leach offense, which uses short passes as a substitute for an edge rushing attack. However, the Ole Miss pass defense has given up 7 or more yards per attempt in six of its last seven games. This is a perfect spot for Rogers to take advantage of a pass defense that is 90th in the country in pass defense on passes of 15 or more air yards (43.1%), and prove that he can be more than just a dink-and-dunk passer.
