Why Mississippi State can cover
Will Rogers is having a tremendous season for the Bulldogs, as he has shattered the school record and ranks second in the country with 4,113 passing yards. The sophomore quarterback’s 391-yard effort in Saturday’s 55-10 triumph over Tennessee State moved him past Dak Prescott (3,793 in 2015) for most passing yards in a season in Mississippi State history. It was the 10th 300-yard performance in 11 outings this year for Rogers as he nearly reached 400 for the fifth time.
The only time he failed to record 300 yards in 2021 was in the second of the campaign, a 24-10 victory over North Carolina State in which he finished with 294. Rogers leads the nation with a 76 percent completion rate and is sixth with 34 touchdown passes after throwing five against the Tigers. He has made at least four TD tosses in each of his last three games, amassing 15 in that span.
Why Ole Miss can cover
The Rebels are 63-46-6 all-time against their in-state rivals and 57-29-5 since the Egg Bowl originated in 1927. They enter this matchup with a three-game winning streak and victories in six of their last seven contests after defeating Vanderbilt 31-17 on Saturday. Ole Miss has the fifth-best offense in the nation (517.5 yards) and is seventh in rushing (231.1) while its passing attack ranks 20th (286.4).
The leader of the aerial attack is Matt Corral, who has thrown for 3,100 yards with 19 touchdowns and only three interceptions. The junior, who is expected to enter the 2022 NFL Draft, has eclipsed the 300-yard mark in two of his last three outings as he passed for 326 and two scores against the Commodores. Corral also has been dangerous with his legs as he is second on the team with 10 rushing TDs and third with 552 yards on the ground.
