Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State 11/23/17

24 November 2017

Ole Miss has a 57-27-5 lead in the Egg Bowl. The Rebels couldn't hold onto a 24-21 halftime lead against the Aggies and fell 31-24, snapping a two-game win streak. I mean, I know it's a rivalry game, we like to win every game. "To the people of the state of MS, this is bragging rights".

But after years of program building, it's not the only important game. The Bulldogs are 4-3 in the SEC and 7-4 against the spread.

5 SEC QBs have rushed for 1,000 yards in one season. For the season, the Rebels are giving up 240.9 yards per game on the ground. Ole Miss interim coach Matt Luke has a chance to finish 6-6 after taking over following the resignation of Hugh Freeze. "I've said this before, I've been a part of teams that have had a better record, but I am really proud of what this team has been able to accomplish with all they've been through". We're going to go out and attack them like a regular game.

114 Games between Mississippi State and Ole Miss when the teams take the field on Saturday. Fitzgerald threw two touchdown passes and ran for another to help Mississippi State overcome an early 14-0 deficit against the Razorbacks last week. He's accounted for 29 touchdowns this season-63% of State's scoring this year.

The Rebels and Bulldogs are back on Thanksgiving with a 6:30 kickoff in the Egg Bowl at Davis Wade Stadium.

Some people thought that perhaps Fitzgerald was rendering the salute at Ole Miss fans. When Ta'amu is protected in the pocket, he's deadly with the Rebels' talented receivers around him. PK Jonathan Nichols scored 344 points for Ole Miss from 2001 through 2004.

This is the final game for Brown and the Rebels in 2017. Fitzgerald has also thrown for 1,770 yards and 15 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. If Wilkins can leave Starkville with 99 or more, he would bust the thousand-yard mark for only the seventh time in school history-and the first since Dexter McCluster did so in 2009.
