Ole Miss Favored Big In Egg Bowl Showdown Vs MS State

3 min read

As the new season of college football games approaches, fans are displaying signs of early enthusiasm to watch the Egg Bowl game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State. However, there are still several months until the next one, but people are already looking forward to this match. To be precise, even in the world of betting, one can see that there was quite a stir among the audience before this meeting.

In a recent report by Brett McMurphy of The Action Network, Circa Sports has offered an early look at the lines for its “Games of the Year” and different matchups involving Ole Miss. One is in the Egg Bowl, hosting their rival Mississippi State, and the Rebels are placed at 19-point favorites in that game. But that’s not all – Ole Miss is going into the games as three-point underdogs against LSU, seven points behind Georgia, and five points ahead of Oklahoma.

The Rebels’ strategic schedule includes three home games against Mississippi State, Oklahoma, and Georgia in Oxford at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. However, they will have to travel to Baton Rouge to play their match against LSU.

This year’s Egg Bowl is especially noteworthy because it will be the first time Lane Kiffin and Jeff Lebby will face off as head coaches of their teams. The rivalry between these two coaches is interesting, given that Lebby was with Kiffin at the University of Mississippi in the past two seasons as the offensive coordinator. There, he tasted success and oversaw a 10-win season and a place in the Sugar Bowl before leaving the Rebels.

In 2020, Kiffin became the head coach at Ole Miss, and he managed to make a positive record against the Mississippi State rival. Of the four games that have been played, three of them have been won under the leadership of the said coach. The only loss was recorded in the year 2022 when the team was hosting a match. When they last met in Starkville, Ole Miss came out victorious with a score of 17-7 and is coming off a great season where the Rebels bested Penn State in the Peach Bowl to achieve their 11th win of the season.

Contrary to expectations, the much-anticipated Egg Bowl will not take place on Thanksgiving Day like other years. Instead of that, fans can look forward to an interesting turn as the game has been moved again on Black Friday, with the match slated at 2:30 in the afternoon, CT time. The shift is anticipated to create a lot of stir and attention, which will be crucial, particularly because the event will be aired on ABC, meaning this exceptional event on the college football field holds a lot of appeal.

The betting lines that are made available to the teams, especially at the end of the year, show that there is a lot of confidence in Ole Miss and the way it is capable of playing in its home ground. Such early predictions build a lot of expectation since fans and possibly analysts get to see how strong these fierce rivals are. With the new management of the show and the stakes being higher than ever, this year’s Egg Contests are set to bring yet another exciting installment to this historic feud.
