OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Matt Corral threw for two touchdowns as Ole Miss raced to a 14-0 first quarter lead and held off a late Mississippi State surge Saturday to defeat the Bulldogs 31-24 in the Egg Bowl rivalry.
Ole Miss (4-4, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) snapped a two-game losing streak in the rivalry, erasing last year's painful one-point loss after Elijah Moore drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the end zone, pushing back a PAT that failed in the final seconds.
"Last year is in the past. We got the Egg (Bowl trophy). That's all that matters," Moore said. "It's a blessing. I didn't think about last year. I just played the game today and I can't thank God enough.
