The Egg Bowl
Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss, Third Edition
The newest chapter in Mississippi’s monster football rivalry
From the contentious delay of the first clash in 1901 to the latest battle in 2023, The Egg Bowl: Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss, Third Edition updates the two previous editions to give the most accurate, in-depth overview of the Ole Miss–Mississippi State rivalry. For each game the narrative includes every scoring drive, every player who crossed the goal line, and every final score. One hundred ninety photographs illustrate the intensity of action on the field and capture the players and exploits faithful fans will always remember.
The passion of the rivalry between these two schools cannot be overstated. Student leaders created the treasured Golden Egg, the trophy of the yearly contest, to quell frequent fisticuffs in the stands. While intended to cool the fervor, the Egg has been controversially remodeled, refurbished, and even kidnapped. On and off the field, the rivalry continually simmers.
This new third edition features full accounts of the games from 2010 to 2023, including new photos and statistics. For the fan who demands to know every stat, The Egg Bowl is the ultimate reference. Which player has scored the most touchdowns? Who rushed for the longest run or threw the longest touchdown pass? How many kickoffs have been returned for touchdowns? Why is November 30 of consequence? Which two men have coached at both schools? And surprisingly, which three players have lettered at Mississippi State and Ole Miss? This is the ideal reference for football fanatics and the perfect gift for both State and Ole Miss fans.
