Egg Bowl: On the Links; Pregame Notes


Here we are, friends. The sun is trying to peek out as the Ole Miss kickers warm up. If you’re not here, go ahead and read up on the Egg Bowl with our GameDay section. In today’s sports section, we take a look back at the 1983 and 1998 Egg Bowls. Also, I had a column about Raycom signing off. And on a basketball note, here’s an update on Rick Stansbury‘s bunch.

No lineup changes as of yet, but I’ll update this if necessary. Now, for the basics:

Records: MSU 4-7 (2-5 SEC), Ole Miss 7-4 (4-3).

Last meeting: MSU won 17-14 last year in Starkville.

TV: Raycom.

Current conditions: 52º, mostly cloudy, ENE winds at 6 mph. An expected high of 59º. Rain forecast: 10% at kickoff, 30% by 2 p.m., according to The Weather Channel.

Press box conditions: Room temperature, as it’s enclosed. Fine with me.

Notable stat: MSU has won only three times in Oxford since the series left Jackson in 1991.
