From the contentious delay of the first clash in 1901 to the
battle in 2009, "The Egg Bowl" covers the Ole Miss-Mississippi
State rivalry in depth. For each game the narrative includes every
scoring drive, every player who crossed the goal line, and every
final score. More than 150 photos illustrate the intensity of
action on the field and capture the players and exploits faithful
fans will always remember.
This new paperback edition features full accounts of the games
in 2007, 2008, and 2009, including new photos and updated
statistics. For the booster who demands to know every statistic,
"The Egg Bowl" creates the ultimate reference. Which player has
scored the most touchdowns? Who rushed for the longest run or threw
the longest touchdown pass? How many kickoffs have been returned
for touchdowns? Why is November 30 of consequence? Which two men
have coached at both schools? And surprisingly, which three players
have lettered at Mississippi State and Ole Miss?
The intensity of the rivalry cannot be understated. Student
leaders created the treasured Golden Egg, trophy of the yearly
contest, to quell frequent fisticuffs in the stands. While intended
to cool the fervor, the Egg has been controversially remodeled,
refurbished, and even kidnapped. The story continually simmers.
This ideal gift for the football fanatic will only stoke those
