The Golden Egg

Today the Ole Miss Rebels play Mississippi State Bulldogs for the Golden Egg.

The first game was played in 1901 and is the 10th longest uninterrupted rivalry game in the nation.  It wasn't until 1927 the trophy was first awarded.

The Golden Egg has been in Starkville for the last two years.  I would love to see it come home to Oxford this year but doubt that will happen.  State has not won more than two in a row since 1942.

The Rebels lead the series 60-41-6.   Leading the series will have to make us feel better for another year.
