STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - This year's Egg Bowl promises to be brisk by Magnolia State standards, with temperatures expected to hover in the 30s on Thursday night.

That could be good news for Mississippi State (5-6, 2-5 Southeastern Conference), which hosts rival Mississippi (7-4, 3-4) in the 110th meeting between the programs.

Mississippi State played well in the cold last weekend against Arkansas, winning 24-17 in overtime. The Bulldogs must win on Thursday to become bowl eligible for a fourth straight season.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze says the Rebels didn't handle the cold weather very well in last weekend's 24-10 loss to No. 5 Missouri. The Rebels had some dropped passes in the red zone, causing their normally prolific offense to stagnate.
