The #4 Mississippi State Bulldogs take on the #19 Ole Miss Rebels in the annual Egg Bowl rivalry game in Week 14 of the College Football season.
The Bulldogs are in the midst of one of the greatest seasons in team history, with a win possibly securing a spot for the Bulldogs in the College Football playoffs. But Mississippi State has a tough road to the SEC Championship, needing to win and see Alabama lose at home to Auburn in order to clinch the SEC West title and head to the Championship game against Missouri. And with Baylor, Ohio State and TCU all hot on their heels, the Bulldogs and QB Dak Prescott especially will need to seriously impress the Selection Committee in order to stay in that highly-coveted #4 spot.
Ole Miss, on the other hand, has gone from an SEC contender to a college football pretender. After starting the season 7-0, the Rebels have now lost 3 of their last four, all of them to SEC teams. The Rebels have a stellar defense, but it certainly didn’t show up against the Arkansas Razorbacks or the Auburn Tigers, giving up a combined 65 points after not giving up more than 20 in any of their first eight games. QB Bo Wallace also needs to get back in a rhythm with the team, as the Rebels have also been held to fewer than 10 points against the LSU Tigers and the Razorbacks.
Prediction: Ole Miss – The Rebels may not be able to go to the playoffs themselves, but they will make this game a living hell for Dak Prescott. With that homefield advantage working for the Rebels – the same place where they’ve beaten Alabama – the Rebels have a great chance of coming away with the upset, thus ending the Bulldogs’ chances of competing in the College Football Playoffs.
