STARKVILLE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

#14 Mississippi State entered the Egg Bowl as a double digit favorite. The Bulldogs suffered a double whammy on Thursday. Nick Fitzgerald was injured and Ole Miss upset MSU 31-28.

Fitzgerald suffered the injury in the 1st quarter. He would leave the game on a cart but came back on crutches in the 2nd half. Breeland Speaks & DeMarquis Gates made the tackle on the play, Speaks commented on the play after the game

A.J. Brown shined in his hometown. He had 6 catches for 167 yards and a touchdown in the victory. Jordan Ta'amu played well in his Egg Bowl debut: 247 passing yds and 2 scores. Jordan Wilkins had a pair of touchdowns on the ground.

Ole Miss led 24-6 at one point, MSU made a charge in the final 5 minutes. Kylin Hill's 30 yd TD made it 31-21, a Keytaon Thompson sneak made it 31-28.

But the Rebels recovered a onside kick to secure the victory. Ole Miss finishes the season 6-6, Matt Luke coached his way into possibly having the interim tag taken off. The Gulfport native has the support of players and coaches.

Mississippi State finishes the season 8-4. We'll find out December 3rd where the Bulldogs will go bowling.
