WLOX Editorial: We are proud of Ole Miss and Mississippi State

Who would have thought it? Ole Miss and Mississippi State among the elite teams in college football at the same time. In fact, if the college football season ended today both the Rebels and the Bulldogs would take two of the four positions in the first ever college playoffs for the National Championship.

But there's still a long way to go in the football season. We are proud of both Ole Miss and Mississippi State as they bring positive national attention to our state.

Maybe the football success even leads more high school students to higher education as they become a part of the pageantry associated with sports and the benefits of college education.

Of course there there are still bragging rights between the two schools to be settled in the egg bowl November. But for now the Dogs and the Rebels are ranked number three in the land.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
