LAST FIVE MEETINGS

Nov. 26, 2016 • Oxford, Miss. • Mississippi State 55, Ole Miss 20:
Freshman quarterback Shea Patterson threw for 320 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while senior running back Akeem Judd added 107 yards on the ground in front of 66,038 fans in Vaught Hemingway Stadium.

Nov. 28, 2015 • Starkville, Miss. • #18 Ole Miss 38, #21 Mississippi State 27:
In a game in which the Rebels looked cool, calm and collected early following a 21-point first quarter, the Bulldogs didn't go away quietly. After a 28-3 halftime score, Mississippi State responded with 10 unanswered points. But, thanks to a responsive effort from the Landshark D and Rebel offense, No. 18 Ole Miss won its second straight Egg Bowl.

Nov. 29, 2014 • Oxford, Miss • #18 Ole Miss 31, #4 Mississippi State 17:,
No. 18 Ole Miss held No. 4 Mississippi State to 17 points, tied for their fewest points scored in a game this season, and a red-zone stand sealed the win for the Rebels. Offensively, quarterback Bo Wallace threw for nearly 300 yards, and running back Jaylen Walton and tight end Evan Engram turned in career games.

Nov. 28, 2013 • Starkville, Miss • Mississippi State 17, Ole Miss 10:
In a defensive game, the 110th meeting of the Egg Bowl came down to overtime, with Mississippi State forcing a turnover on the Rebels' OT possession to win it 17-10. Ole Miss didn't have an offensive touchdown, scoring only on a 22-yard Andrew Ritter field goal and a blocked punt by Collins Moore recovered by Terrell Grant in the end zone at the end of the first half.

Nov. 24, 2012 • Oxford, Miss. • Ole Miss 41, #24 Mississippi State 24:
Paced by a three-touchdown performance from Donte Moncrief, Ole Miss defeated its intrastate rival, No. 24 Mississippi State, 41-24 on a beautiful Saturday night in front of 61,005 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Rebels snapped the Bulldogs' three-game winning streak in the series. MISSISSIPPI STATE INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS
