OM claims Egg Bowl, knocks MSU out of playoff

Ole Miss pulled out all the stops to dash its biggest rival’s championship dreams. The 18th-ranked Rebels ripped off their longest run of the season, got a touchdown pass from a running back and shut down Mississippi State’s vaunted running game to end the regular-season with a 31-17 victory Saturday, snapping a three-game Southeastern Conference losing streak in front of 62,058 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

    COLUMN: Rebels party — er, play — like it’s 2012 in latest Egg Bowl win

    If Ole Miss’ final win of the regular season Saturday afternoon had a familiar feeling, you may be onto something. There the state’s biggest rivals were, squaring off against each other at VaughtHemingway Stadium in the latest rendition of the Egg Bowl. Mississippi State, ranked No. 4 in all the major polls — including the one that counts, the College Football Playoff rankings — was the favorite in the Rebels’ backyard against an Ole Miss team that limped into Saturday losers in each of its last three Southeastern Conference games. (November 30, 2014, Page 1B)

        ‘Rough’ Egg Bowl ending still fresh for Rebels a year later

        Nobody’s forgotten. With Mississippi State leading Ole Miss 17-10 in last year’s Egg Bowl in Starkville, Rebel quarterback Bo Wallace looked like he was going to answer Dak Prescott’s touchdown run in overtime with one of his own to extend the game. Wallace took the snap, pulled the ball from Jaylen Walton’s belly and sprinted up the middle inside the Bulldogs’ 5-yard line on his way to the end zone. But he never got there. (November 28, 2014, Page 6A)

              Eleven teams have tried. Not many of them have succeeded. There’s not a whole lot of mystery to Mississippi State’s offense. The Bulldogs are going to line quarterback Dak Prescott up in the shotgun with running back Josh Robinson to his left or right, and one of them is going to run the ball to set up play-action passes off of it. (November 26, 2014, Page 6A)
