Egg Bowl will feature two outstanding quarterbacks


For the first time in history, both No. 19 Ole Miss and No. 22 Mississippi State have been ranked in back-to-back Egg Bowl games. Kickoff time 6:15 Saturday night in Starkville.

Ole Miss has enjoyed success in Egg Bowl games played in Starkville with 18 wins, 12 losses and 3 ties. However, the last time the Rebels beat the Bulldogs on Mississippi State's home turf was back in 2003. Last season 18th ranked Ole Miss beat No. 4 Mississippi State 31-17 in Oxford.

That loss didn't sit well with Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott. He's determined to turn the tide in favor of Mississippi State on Saturday.

Bulldogs head coach Dan Mullen knows Prescott has been a major factor in helping propel the Bulldogs into a consistent winner. The Egg Bowl will be the Dak Attack's final home game.

Mullen said, "Honestly I think it will be pride of just what he's been able to accomplish on the football field as a player.  The adversity he's had to overcome off the field as a player and how he's grown as a man that way.  I'm guessing when they announce him for senior night, I'm guessing it's going to be loud."

Look for an offensive blitz with Prescott and Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly leading the charge of their respective teams.

Hugh Freeze said, "Both have played really well.  Both have really good numbers and should make for an exciting game Saturday evening".

Dan Mullen has compiled 4 wins and 2 losses in the Egg Bowl. Hugh Freeze is 2 and 1.
