A venerable Thanksgiving tradition is back on the schedule this season as the Egg Bowl renews the formal hostilities between Ole Miss and Mississippi State as college football's Week 13 action kicks off on Thursday.

Mississippi State can pack a punch offensively with Will Rogers working behind center at quarterback, but the team has faltered in its more important matchups, including three losses against ranked SEC rivals in its last five games overall.
