Mississippi State will ring in the Egg Bowl in style with new Adidas uniforms

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.
