The SEC officially kicks off Rivalry Week Thursday night with the showdown between Ole Miss and Mississippi State, formally known as the Egg Bowl.

Right now, the Egg Bowl trophy is sitting in Oxford. Ole Miss won last year 31-24, and the Rebels intend on keeping it in Oxford for the foreseeable future.

While there’s bad blood between these 2 programs, Lane Kiffin and Mike Leach have a tremendous amount of respect for one another and actually like each other. This certainly isn’t the NBA of the 1990s.

On Wednesday night, Ole Miss released an awesome hype video ahead of the Egg Bowl narrated by former Rebels defensive star Jerrell Powe.

The Egg Bowl kicks of Thursday night from Starkville, Mississippi, at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
