Ole Miss takes on Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl for their final game of the season.
Although Mississippi State took a dominant 55-10 victory over Tennessee State last week, they will be challenged by the rebels’ aggressive defense. Quarterback Matt Corral threw for a season-high 326 yards with two touchdowns in Ole Miss’s 31-17 win over Vanderbilt.
He was in frequent contact with wide receiver Jahcour Pearson, who made four receptions for 101 yards. He also found leading receiver Dontario Drummond for 79 yards with a touchdown. Rebels leading rusher Jerrion Ealy, who ran 55 yards with a touchdown last week, will drive the ball to the ground.
While Corral is expected to rely on his receivers, he will be pressured by the Bulldogs’ defense. Linebacker Tire Wheat leads Mississippi State with six sacks, followed by Nathan Pickering and Randy Charlton, who both took four. Cornerback Emmanuel Forbes also leads the Bulldogs with three interceptions.
A win against the Rebels extends the Bulldogs’ winning streak and increases their chances of winning a competitive match-up. While quarterback Will Rogers threw 391 yards with five touchdowns last week, he will continue to rely on Makai Polk, who leads the state of Mississippi with 891 yards and nine touchdowns.
