Ole Miss to Host Unified Egg Bowl

OXFORD, Miss. -- While the Egg Bowl football game remains the most divisive annual event in many Mississippi households, fans of both the University of Mississippi and Mississippi State University are again being called upon to unite in support of Special Olympics Mississippi.

The fourth annual Special Olympics Unified Egg Bowl is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 29, at the Manning Center on the Ole Miss campus. Special Olympics athletes with intellectual disabilities will play flag football alongside traditional college students from both schools, sharing in the fanfare and passionate competition that the schools display during their annual Egg Bowl game.

Admission to the event is free but fans of each school are encouraged to visit give.classy.org/unifiedegg and help their team win the game within the game while helping Special Olympics Mississippi and the movement of inclusion.

The flag football contest has a little added flavor this year as the Unified Rebels and Unified Bulldogs will square off to see who will be heading to Seattle to represent Mississippi at the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games.
