Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State game time: Egg Bowl set for afternoon kick

This year’s Egg Bowl, Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State, will be a day game.

Ole Miss’ annual rivalry tilt against Mississippi State on Nov. 26 will kick off from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at 2:30 p.m., the Southeastern Conference announced Monday. The game will be televised by the SEC Network.

The Rebels (5-5, 2-4 SEC) have won two in a row in the series, including a 38-27 win in Starkville last season. Ole Miss won 31-17 in the Bulldogs’ last trip to Oxford in 2014.

This year’s game could have postseason implications. Ole Miss goes to Vanderbilt this Saturday and needs a win this week or next to make a bowl while the Bulldogs (4-6, 2-4) have to win out against Arkansas and Ole Miss to go bowling.
