Ole Miss and Mississippi State meet Saturday for the 113th time. Ole Miss leads the series 63-43-6, but there has been amazing parity over the past 25 years: Mississippi State leads 13-12 in that span.

Here’s a look at five of the most memorable “Egg Bowls” in history.

No. 5, 2008: Ole Miss 45, Mississippi State 0
In Houston Nutt’s first Egg Bowl and Sylvester Croom’s last one, the Rebels responded after losing the previous season in Starkville. Remember the Derek Pegues punt return? If you don’t, I’m sure Ed Orgeron does: That 2007 loss was his final game as coach at Ole Miss. Ole Miss hadn’t forgotten the ’07 disappointment. In one of the most one-sided games in series history, Ole Miss routed Mississippi State on a cold day in Oxford, the largest margin ion the series since 1971. Ole Miss eventually landed in the Cotton Bowl against Texas Tech. Croom resigned after five seasons and a 21–38 record.

Ole Miss Football: Shake Off the Misery and Get Pumped for the Egg Bowl

It’s been a tough season. But now it’s time to stop wallowing in misery and get pumped up! The Egg Bowl is here!

5-6 is not where we saw ourselves in early September. I know, SEC Championship aspirations were dashed early. But such is life. It’s Egg Bowl time. It’s Senior Day. The time for sulking and moping around is over. Mississippi State is in town and it’s time to send them home in utter defeat.

We’ve endured too much nonsense this year for us to cower in the corner now. This isn’t the first disappointing season we have seen here. We’ve had a few. However, the one thing that always made a bad season palatable was defeating the Bulldogs.

After suffering its first loss of the season on Monday, Ole Miss basketball stormed out early and then held on for an 86-81 win over Montana on Thursday in Oxford, Miss.

The Rebels fell to No. 12 Creighton in the Paradise Jam championship game on Monday, and looked to shake off that result early against the Grizzles. Ole Miss led 41-29 at halftime, but the Grizzles cut the lead to 5 points with under a minute to go before the Rebels held on for the win.

Ole Miss could have put the game away much earlier, but went 19-of-28 from the free-thr0w line, a 68-percent mark.
