Week 13 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Thanksgiving Day special when the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Mississippi Rebels clash in the 119th edition of the Egg Bowl rivalry.
The battle for the Golden Egg kicks off in Oxford at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN and the home favored Rebels look to snap a two-game losing streak after a 42-27 loss at Arkansas last week. That will drop Ole Miss to near No. 20 in the CFB Playoff Top 25 when the fourth of six CFP polls is revealed on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
Meanwhile, Mississippi State tries to snap a two-game losing streak to the rival Rebels and comes in fresher off an easy 56-7 win over FCS East Tennessee State.

Mississippi State vs Ole Miss Prediction & Pick
Ole Miss stumbles into this rivalry off a pair of losses to Arkansas and Alabama. The Rebels have lost three of their last four games while gridning through tougher SEC games. The Ole Miss pass defense ranks No. 95 in the country in QB rating for opposing quarterbacks. Now they face the SEC's leading passer Will Rodgers (3,464 yards, 32 TD passes).
Ole Miss has won the last two Egg Bowls and coaches Lane Kiffin and Mike Leach meet a third straight time. But there are concerns in this matchup with the Old Miss defense against the Air Raid attack with Miss State QB Will Rodgers spreading the ball around to five Bulldogs receivers with at least 30 receptions and 3 TD receptions or more. The Rebels have allowed at least 28 points in six straight games after not allowing that many points in any of their first five games this season.
Ole Miss does counter with the strongest rushing attack of all Power 5 teams averaging 283 rushing YPG vs FBS opponents. But Mississippi State's run defense has been pretty solid allowing 154 rushing YPG and holding Georgia to 179 and Alabama to just 29 rushing yards on 27 attempts in a road defeat.
Final Score Prediction: Mississippi State: 31 | Ole Miss: 27

The Bulldogs have 56 players on the roster that hail from Magnolia State. Many were raised by families on one side of the rivalry or the other and feel as if they have been a part of the Battle for the Golden Egg for as long as they can remember.
"I don't think you fully understand unless you're from here or are a part of the game," SEC leading passer Will Rogers said. "This is the game that everybody thinks about every year. It doesn't matter where we play it or who is ranked higher or what the records are. It's the biggest game of the year, every year."
Ole Miss QB Jaxson Dart plays in his first Egg Bowl, while SEC leading passer Will Rodgers gets the Bulldogs a win and the Golden Egg Trophy with an even better performance than last year's 336 passing yards and 1 TD vs Ole Miss.
