Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Mississippi State vs Ole Miss

Rival Team: Ole Miss Rebels

Every year the Bulldogs play their archrivals Ole Miss for the Golden Egg. This rivalry began when Mississippi State had to protect their goal posts with wooden chairs from Ole Miss fans. These two teams clash every year for the grand prize of being the coveted Egg Bowl victor. Ole Miss holds the edge in the all-time series 62-43-6, but the Bulldogs will look to narrow the gap when these instate rivals meet next.

Mississippi State vs LSU

Rival Team: LSU Tigers

Both Mississippi State and LSU are founders of the SEC meaning these two teams have played each other a lot over the years. In fact, LSU is Mississippi State’s second oldest rival after Ole Miss having played each other 109 times. LSU held the edge in the all-time series 72-34-3 and had won 14 meetings in a row leading up to 2014, but the Bulldogs have improved significantly over the last few seasons and will look to put a dent in LSU’s lead.

Mississippi State vs Alabama

Rival Team: Alabama Crimson Tide

The rivalry between Mississippi State and Alabama is sometimes called the 90-mile drive or Battle for Highway 82 about the proximity of the two schools. These two schools are two of the closest SEC schools geographically, and there is no love lost when these two foes meet. Mississippi State hasn’t fared super well against Bama over the years. However, the Bulldogs have managed to win an impressive eight times at Bryant-Denny Stadium over the years, which is tied for the most with LSU.
