The Egg Bowl is here, let the anxiety and gnashing of teeth begin

May Jerrell Powe’s words ring in your ears instead of cowbells

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Mississippi State Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

The annual Egg Bowl is finally here - Happy Thanksgiving.

Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. CT, so once your second or fourth plate of turkey, ham and fixings is devoured and slowly digesting, plop down in your favorite spot with a cocktail and let the melee ensue.

This week’s hype video is brought to life by the words of a man who is shaped like a damn Kenmore refrigerator and legend in the series - Jerrell Powe.

Simply put - the state belongs to Ole Miss, and this game is where players can show that’s the truth. Don’t let the maroon and white take it away from you - do your job and run the ‘Sip.

There does seem to be a little bit of a good vibe going this year for a lot of Ole Miss fans. Once there’s a shot of the crowd at the stadium, it will be telling how many Rebels are confident in bringing the Egg Bowl trophy back to Oxford.

The first Bloody Mary has been mixed here, family is arriving soon, and kickoff will be here before we know it. Hotty Toddy, cheers and GO TO HELL STATE!
