For the first time since 2003, the Egg Bowl will be returning to Thanksgiving night.
Thursday night, the annual rivalry game between the Ole Miss Rebels and the Mississippi State Bulldogs will take back its rightful Turkey Day place.
Ole Miss comes in at 7-4 on the season, but are coming off a tough 24-10 loss to the leaders of the SEC East, the Missouri Tigers. Overall, though, the Rebels have won four of their last five and are showing some tremendous strides as Hugh Freeze tries to bring this program to prominence.
Mississippi State brings a 5-6 record into this one as they fight for bowl eligibility in the last game of the year. They’ve lost three of their last four, and narrowly avoided an embarrassment last week, squeaking by Arkansas in OT, 24-10.
When these two get together on the field, there’s no telling what can happen. Here’s how you can watch the Thanksgiving return of the Egg Bowl live:
Date: Nov. 28
