WATCH: Ole Miss DL Pegues talks about what it means for him to play in the Battle for the Golden Egg

Ole Miss football held their media availability Monday. After head coach Lane Kiffin met with the media, it was the players’ turn.

Rebels defensive lineman JJ Pegues, an Oxford, MS native, took to the podium to talk about the season, his family being involved with the Egg Bowl rivalry on both sides, what it means to him to play in this game, and of course-the swirling rumors surrounding his head coach.
