OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Mississippi State coach Mike Leach admitted the Egg Bowl series with Ole Miss ranks among the nation's elite rivalries in unpredictability.
"Both sides let the other think they'd won it," Leach said. "It was erratic on both sides. Just about the time you think it couldn't get any crazier, it did."
Will Rogers passed for two touchdowns and Mississippi State stopped a potential game-tying 2-point conversion with 1:25 remaining to preserve a 24-22 Egg Bowl win over No. 20 Mississippi on Thursday night.
