Ole Miss, Mississippi State featured on SI cover
The biggest weekend in the history of the Magnolia State gets a pretty sweet ending.
Ole Miss and Mississippi State share the cover of the upcoming issue of Sports Illustrated. It’s the fifth cover for the Rebels and first for the Bulldogs. This week’s cover story is on the improbably Saturday afternoon.

Not only did the wins capture the attention of the college football world, the fever-pitch electricity surrounding the match-ups with then-No. 3 Alabama and then-No. 6 Texas A&M attracted the entire nation, including arguably the biggest pop star on the planet in Katy Perry.
The road doesn’t get any easier this week, however. The two teams are tied in the latest Associated Press Top 25 at No. 3, and Ole Miss goes on the road to face a dangerous Texas A&M team, while Mississippi State looks for its third consecutive win over a top 10 team when it hosts No. 2 Auburn.
