    Ole Miss football coach Lane Kiffin fanned the flames of the school’s rivalry with Mississippi State on Thanksgiving after the Rebels won the Egg Bowl 31-21. Kiffin specifically took issue with the cowbells that Mississippi State fans use to cause a distraction for the opposing team. Kiffin was on the receiving end of some of the taunts but at the end of the game he made clear the game was over but admitted some regret to his celebration.

    The Egg Bowl is one of the most heated rivalries in college football between Ole Miss and Mississippi State but where did the odd name come from? Few college football rivalries have the true animosity that the Egg Bowl generates. Put simply, the Ole Miss Rebels and Mississippi State Bulldogs have absolute disdain for one another and it shows in either Oxford or Starkville when the schools face off once per season. However, given the two mascots and the Mississippi ties, it’s hard to calculate exactly how the rivalry got its name. So if you’re wondering why it’s called the Egg Bowl, we have you covered.Egg Bowl name origin: How the Ole Miss-Mississippi State game got its nameOle Miss and Mississippi State have been playing since 1901 but the trophy known as the “Golden Egg” was introduced in 1927 after fights broke out following Rebels fans taking down goalposts and opposing fans fervently defending them, even using chairs as weapons. As such, they created a trophy that featured a brass football atop a base. However, when it was created,...

    It was a big weekend for the state of Mississippi with Ole Miss and Mississippi State getting big wins to make a move in this week’s SEC power rankings. This college football season continues to be bizarre. Unfortunately for two future members of the Southeastern Conference, things weren’t easy on Saturday. This past week, the Texas Longhorns lost to the Kansas Jayhawks in Austin for the first time while the Oklahoma Sooners were beaten by the Baylor Bears. Over in the SEC, things were odd with the conference’s current members. One team managed to blow a 28-3 lead as their opponent scored 40 unanswered points, an FCS team put up 52 on a once-proud program, and two teams that have had fun offenses this season found a way to play a really low scoring affair. How do things shake out with the SEC power ranking after week 11?SEC power rankings: Mississippi State makes statement in comeback against Auburn 14 Commodores Football season is almost over and fans of the Vanderbilt Commodores are almost certainly ready to move on from this...

    STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Jessika Carter scored 19 points and Myah Taylor scored the last four as No. 14 Mississippi State fended off an upset bid from in-state rival Ole Miss, 60-56 Sunday night. Coming into the 100th meeting in the series, the Rebels hadn’t won a game in Starkville since 2007, nor defeated the Bulldogs in the last 14 tries. But Sunday, Donnetta Johnson and Valerie Nesbitt each reached career highs in scoring, Johnson with 25 and Nesbitt 18. The pair did some heavy lifting late, scoring 16 of Ole Miss’ 18 points in the fourth quarter. A Nesbitt drive sliced what had been a 12-point Mississippi State lead down to 58-56 with a minute left.

    OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Matt Corral threw for two touchdowns as Ole Miss raced to a 14-0 first quarter lead and held off a late Mississippi State surge Saturday to defeat the Bulldogs 31-24 in the Egg Bowl rivalry.

Moore entered the game leading the nation in receptions (10.6 per game) and yardage (159.3).

    Ole Miss football, Mississippi State football have been traded to the Big Ten.For the Big Ten to get football back, the White House had to negotiate an unprecedented trade.

The White House broke the news to us on Wednesday, as the Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans join the SEC West, while the Ole Miss Rebels and the Mississippi Bulldogs have joined the Big Ten East.

    Former Ole Miss guard Blake Hinson now claims that the Confederate emblem on the Mississippi State flag played a part in his reasons for transferring to Iowa State. “To make a general statement, it was time to go and leave Ole Miss,” Hinson told the Daytona Beach News-Journal. “I’m proud not to represent that flag anymore and to not be associated with anything representing the Confederacy. “I felt like it was the best option for me,” Hinson added. “There wasn’t a real science that went into it. I looked into the schools and the play style, and I thought I fit best in Iowa State’s system.” Despite the state’s flag, though, Hinson admitted that he couldn’t remember a single time he faced racism on the Ole Miss campus. The 6-foot-7 Hinson averaged 10.1 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in 2019 and is set to join the Iowa Cyclones once they resume playing after the coronavirus scare ends. Like many other institutions, Ole Miss is already beginning the process of purging its history. For instance, the Mississippi Institutions of Higher...

College coaches and athletic directors are lobbying to get the Mississippi state flag changed. From Ole Miss football to Mississippi State football, anyone who is anyone in Mississippi collegiate athletics made the trek to the state capital of Jackson, lobbying for the state to change its flag. Lane Kiffin, Mike Leach, Kermit Davis, Ben Howland, Mike Bianco, John Cohen and Keith Carter were there telling Mississippi to do something it should have been done a long time ago. We removed the flag from our campus five years ago, so we’ve made it clear that it doesn’t represent who we are at Ole Miss,” said Kiffin to ESPN. “Today is another big step in doing our part to move the state forward and ensure a more welcoming environment for everyone. This is extremely important to me and to our players. Time to change!” “The purpose of a state flag is to create pride and enthusiasm amongst the citizens,” said Leach to...

    Almost 20 years after the people of Mississippi voted to keep its state flag featuring the Confederate symbol, Mississippi legislators are proposing another bill that would remove the stars and bars from the upper corner of the banner. And in order for the state to host future Southeastern Conference championships, as it last did in 2016 with the SEC softball tournament, it will need to pass. “It is past time for change to be made to the flag of the State of Mississippi,” SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said in a recent statement. “Our students deserve an opportunity to learn and compete in environments that are inclusive and welcoming to all. “In the event there is no change, there will be consideration of precluding Southeastern Conference championship events from being conducted in the State of Mississippi until the flag is changed.” MORE: Why Florida banned its “Gator Bait” cheer The NCAA has banned postseason events in Mississippi for the same reason. The SEC’s two schools in the state, Mississippi State and the University of Mississippi, have not displayed the flag since 2016. Both released statements of...
    SEC commissioner Greg Sankey thinks Mississippi should change its state flag. Sankey released a statement Thursday that “it is past time” for Mississippi to change the flag, and the SEC will consider pulling out conference championship events if the flag doesn’t change. The Mississippi state flag features the Confederate flag. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) You can read the full statement below.

However, I’m not sure it’s the job of Greg Sankey to get involved in Mississippi politics. Shouldn’t a decision on the flag be left up to the people of Mississippi? Big move for the @SEC.
