Mississippi State drops intense Egg Bowl hype video
Unfortunately, due to 2020 being 2020, this year’s Thanksgiving does not include the Egg Bowl. We did, at least, get Mississippi State’s hype video for the annual in-state rivalry clash.
The Bulldogs official Twitter account shared the clip from Hail State Productions:

As one would expect, the video features highlights from past battles for the Golden Egg, including 2019’s wild finish in Starkville, a 21-20 MSU victory. A few highlights from this season, Year 1 under coach Mike Leach, are also sprinkled in the clip.
MSU has had an up-and-down 2020 season. The Leach era started off with a bang, a 44-34 win in Week 1 over defending national champion LSU at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. Mississippi State dropped its next four games to Arkansas, Kentucky, Texas A&M and Alabama, though, before finally snapping the losing skid with a win over Vanderbilt. The Bulldogs are 2-5 after falling 31-24 at Georgia in Week 9.
If there’s one guaranteed way to salvage a season, it’s with a win over your in-state rival. Saturday’s game is set for the 3 p.m. CT slot on the SEC Network. MSU is a 9.5-point underdog according to the Vegas Insider Consensus, down from the 12-point opening spread.
