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. Walton finished with a career-high 148 yards on 14 carries, including a highlight-reel 91-yard touchdown run that proved to be the game-winning score for the Rebels.

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 VaughtHemingway Stadium. The Rebels snapped the Bulldogs’ three-game winning streak in the series.

Nov. 26, 2011 - Starkville, Miss - Mississippi State 31, Ole Miss 3:
Barry Brunetti went 12-for-22 for 110 yards in Starkville as the Rebels fell to the Bulldogs 31-3 in the 2011 Egg Bowl to finish Houston Nutt’s career at Ole Miss. Ole Miss started nine freshmen in the game and finished the season with 10 losses for the first time in program history.

Nov. 27, 2010 - Oxford, Miss - Mississippi State 31, Ole Miss 23:
Jeremiah Masoli threw for 261 yards and set the school record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a season, but Ole Miss dropped the Egg Bowl 31-23 to Mississippi State. Ole Miss nearly rallied from a 31-9 fourth-quarter deficit, scoring twice to pull within 31-23 with 4:21 left.
