OXFORD, Miss. – Kickoff for the annual Southeastern Conference rivalry game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State on Nov. 26 has been set for 2:30 p.m. CT, televised by SEC Network.

The Rebels and Bulldogs will square off in the Battle for the Golden Egg, commonly referred to as the Egg Bowl, in Oxford this year. Ole Miss will honor its seniors during pregame ceremonies.

Depending on the outcome of this weekend’s games, one or both teams could be seeking bowl eligibility in the final game of the regular season.

Ole Miss (5-5, 2-4 SEC) travels to Nashville for a bout with Vanderbilt (4-6, 1-5 SEC) this Saturday (7 p.m., SEC Network). The Rebels are coming off a thrilling 29-28 come-from-behind victory at No. 8 Texas A&M, in which true freshman Shea Patterson led the team to 23 fourth-quarter points in his collegiate debut.

Mississippi State (4-6, 2-4 SEC) hosts Arkansas (6-4, 2-4 SEC) this Saturday in Starkville (6 p.m., ESPNU).

Four of the Rebels’ final five games of the regular season will have been aired on the SEC Network. Eleven of the team’s 12 games will have been televised by the ESPN family of networks. Only the Sept. 17 Alabama game (CBS) was not.
