Watch some of Ole Miss’ Mississippi seniors talk significance of Egg Bowl

You won’t find anybody in Ole Miss’ camp downplaying the importance of the annual Egg Bowl, but the Rebels’ game against Mississippi State means a little bit more for the seniors who call Mississippi home.

The Rebels have 12 seniors who hail from the Magnolia State with safety Tony Conner and cornerback Derrick Jones being among them. Both met with the media ahead of this year’s game against Mississippi State on Saturday (2:30 p.m., SEC Network) to talk about the importance of the annual rivalry game and the significance of winning the last one.

Watch Conner and Jones talk about these topics, the challenges that Mississippi State presents on both sides of the ball and more in the videos below.
