Players from Ole Miss and Mississippi State just couldn’t resist the opportunity to scrap Thursday night in the Egg Bowl.
All hell broke loose following a negated touchdown for the Rebels at the end of the third quarter. Members on both teams quickly engaged each other in a brawl unlike anything we’ve seen in a long time in college football.
Watch the absolutely insane video below.
Mississippi State and Ole Miss are NOT in the holiday spirit.

Now, I’m on the record as being a very pro-Ole Miss guy. I think people down in Oxford are some of the coolest people you’ll find on this planet.
That’s why I have absolutely no choice but to side with the Rebels here. Did the video appear to show an Ole Miss player instigating the entire brawl? Maybe, but who are we to judge? It’s not like this is the Zapruder film or something like that. (RELATED: The Latest AP College Football Poll Has Arrived. Does Number Two Surprise You?)
Maybe our eyes are playing tricks on us. Let’s not assume anything.

Sure, they might have lost the game 35-3, but I think it’s safe to say they won that scrap. Sometimes you have to take wins where you can find them.
