Fans of Mississippi football can expect a holiday treat this fall: The Egg Bowl will return to ESPN's Thanksgiving lineup. The network announced Wednesday that the 110th in-state clash between Mississippi State and Ole Miss will once again take place on Thanksgiving, which this year falls on Nov. 28.

The matchup previously took place on ESPN on Thanksgiving from 1998-2003 before moving to Saturdays. But thanks to joint interest from Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork and Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin, the game will return as a proper dessert following football fans' Thanksgiving feasts.

Ole Miss won last year's game 41-24 to extend its all-time series lead to 61-42-6.
