ESPN will televise Mississippi at rival Mississippi State on Thanksgiving night, Thursday, Nov. 28, at 7:30 p.m. ET. It will mark the 110th meeting between the SEC programs, the sixth-longest uninterrupted series between two teams. ESPN previously televised the rivalry game – also known as the Battle for the Golden Egg and the Egg Bowl – as its annual Thanksgiving Day prime-time college football game from 1998 to 2003. Ole Miss won last year’s meeting 41-24 and leads the series 61-42-6.

ESPN previously announced it will also televise an additional Ole Miss and Mississippi State game as part of its weekly Thursday ESPN College Football Primetime series: Ole Miss at Vanderbilt on Thursday, Aug. 29, at 9:15 p.m. and Kentucky at Mississippi State on Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m.
