Ole Miss beat Mississippi State 31-24 on Saturday night, giving new head coach Lane Kiffin his first Egg Bowl win. Here's what former Ole Miss QB Eli Manning had to say about it...
Here's what Lane said after the game...
quote:

“A really neat win. The first time part of this rivalry,” Kiffin said postgame, per 247Sports. “You could feel the energy from our fans. I can’t imagine what it would be like if it was full. Our players brought great sideline energy. We didn’t play great. I really thought we should have opened the game up there in the first half and scored in the redzone…to make it 28-7, I believe at the time. Instead, (we) didn’t score and they went down and scored there on a 90-yard drive.

“It’s great to come across with a win. I wish we would have played cleaner and better, but I’m happy for our fans and happy for our players. Thank God that he gave us a chance to play. A lot of people aren’t getting a chance to play, so I reminded our players of that again today after church this morning with them. Not everybody is getting the opportunity that you are.

“It’s good to get the trophy back where it belongs. Let’s keep it here for a long time.”

Did Eli spit on any State fans, players, or staff? It’s what they do at OM.
