SEC 2010 // The Rivalries: The Egg Bowl | Team Speed Kills
Here's a fun fact:

[From] 1947 [to 1960], the Rebels went 14-0-3 over the next 17 games. Since the end of that stretch, Ole Miss has lost just 16 games. (Actually 18, but the Western Division Bulldogs were forced to forfeit a pair of wins because of NCAA sanctions.)

So, if I'm reading this correctly, State has only won the Golden Egg trophy 18 times over the past 50 years.
