Rival coaches friendly before Egg Bowl


Mississippi State will try to win the Egg Bowl for the third year in a row, something the Bulldogs have done only twice since 1941.

They have a shot if they play like they did at Georgia.

In a rivalry game of this magnitude, you might expect some tension between the head coaches, not getting that here, Mike Leach seems to genuinely like Lane Kiffin. “You try to avoid as many boring people as you can. Lane’s not boring, so I’ve always been excited to spend time with him. If you’re stuck at one of these coaches meeting things that everybody pretends are so important, Lane lightens it up a little bit. I for one am happy that he’s there, so.”

Kickoff is 3 p.m. Saturday.
