First the Egg Bowl gets moved back to primetime on Thanksgiving night. Now Mississippi State is getting new uniforms to celebrate.

First impressions:

I really like how the numbers pop. That "Hail State" looks stunning. The contrast of the letters and numbers looks really nice with the maroon, and boy, is there a lot of maroon. There maybe could be an extra little bit of something -- a bit more on the shoulder pads, a little extra oomph on the helmets -- but staying traditional isn't necessarily a bad thing for a series that has been played more than 100 times. These will look great under the lights, and I'm hoping Ole Miss' uniforms will be just as nice. RICKMAN: Adopt-a-Team: Mississippi State Bulldogs of the SEC
