Mississippi State fans called out over cowbell ringing during Egg Bowl
College football fans everywhere are tuning in to ESPN to watch Ole Miss-Mississippi State. The Egg Bowl rivalry clash leads this year’s Thanksgiving CFB slate.
At every Mississippi State home game, the cowbells can be heard on the TV broadcast. Many fans think the Bulldog fans are not following the rules for ringing the cowbells when Ole Miss has the ball. MSU fans are supposed to stop ringing the cowbells once the ball is set. Greg Sankey and SEC officiating are being tagged about the apparent lack of enforcement in Starkville.
Here’s a sample of what’s being said on Twitter:

It wouldn’t be the Egg Bowl without some controversy. Mississippi State currently leads 6-3 in the first half.
