The Dawg’s defense held Ole Miss’s offense to its lowest rushing yardage this season—78—and to only 4 of 17 on third down conversions to help return the Egg Bowl trophy to the Mississippi State campus over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was Coach Mike Leach’s first Egg Bowl win and finished with a final score of 24-22. Leach praised the Bulldog defense for “an incredible effort.”
