There used to be multiple college football rivalry games played on Thanksgiving. Now, we're down to one: The Egg Bowl between Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

Ole Miss owns the all-time series lead against its in-state rival with an overall record of 62-45-6. However, over the last couple of decades, the rivalry has been extremely competitive.

This year, there's plenty at stake when the two teams meet in Starkville tomorrow night. Both Ole Miss and Mississippi State are 5-6.

That means that the winner of this game is bowl eligible, while the loser likely stays home in the postseason. Additionally, both head coaches--Ole Miss' Matt Luke and Mississippi State's Joe Moorhead--are potentially on the "hot seat."

Last year, the Rebels and Bulldogs brawled in Oxford. While we're hoping we don't get a repeat of any on-field fisticuffs, a hard-fought, competitive game should be expected.

Here are the television and betting details for the game:

Game Time: Thursday, Nov. 28, 7:30 p.m. ET

Channel: ESPN

Spread: Mississippi State -2.5

Over/Under: 58

Announcers: Adam Amin, Matt Hasselbeck, Pat McAfee, Molly McGrath

In addition to being the slight betting favorite, Mississippi State has a 65 percent chance of winning the game, according to ESPN's FPI.
