WATCH: QB Rogers, teammates excited for first Egg Bowl win after the game

“I’ll enjoy this one for the rest of my life. Feels good,” said Mississippi State QB Will Rogers after the game. “Kind of got tired of losing to these guys.”

While the old adage that defense wins championships is certainly true, Mississippi State proved playing solid defense can help win trophies too. The Bulldogs’ defense played a crucial role in claiming a 24-22 victory over Ole Miss and helped return the Golden Egg Trophy back to its pedestal inside the Seal Football Complex in the early morning hours on Friday.
