Ole Miss WR Elijah Moore reflects on last year’s Egg Bowl mishap


Exciting week in progress as we get ready for the 93rd rendition of the battle for the Golden Egg.

The home team Ole Miss is an eight-and-a-half point favorite. Good luck stopping Elijah Moore, he might be the best receiver in the country. But you can’t talk about this game without mentioning what happened last year when he got that 15-yard penalty.

Talk about redeeming yourself, all he’s done since is put together one of the best seasons in all of college football. “I feel like I learned a lot. I’m human I make mistakes. You’ve just got to learn from them and don’t let them happen again. I let my team down. I just know it won’t happen again.”

Ole Miss QB Matt Corral said, “Kickers get a lot of heat if they miss the game-winning kick one game, and then the next game they make the game-winning kick and they are everybody’s best friend. It’s a learned lesson from him, and it doesn’t have any effect on him.”
