Ole Miss will face Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl for their final game of the season.
Although Mississippi State is coming off a dominant 55-10 win 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 during Ole Miss' 31-17 victory over Vanderbilt.
He frequently connected with wide reciever Jahcour Pearson, who made four receptions for 101 yards. He also found leading reciever Dontario Drummond for 79 yards with a touchdown. Rebels' leading rusher Jerrion Ealy, who rushed for 55 yards with a touchdown last week, will drive the ball on the ground.
While Corral is expected to rely on his receivers, he will be pressured by the Bulldogs' defense. Linebacker Tyrus Wheat leads Mississippi State with six sacks, followed by Nathan Pickering and Randy Charlton who both recorded four. Cornerback Emmanuel Forbes also leads the Bulldogs with three interceptions.
