Despite record, Bulldogs still have plenty to play for

STARKVILLE — Logically speaking, Mississippi State has nothing to play for in today’s Egg Bowl.
But, really: When has logic ever applied to this rivalry?
Bowl eligibility out of the picture after having suffered their seventh loss last week, the Bulldogs enter today’s game against No. 20 Ole Miss knowing that the final buzzer means the end of the season and the end of 16 players’ careers. The past few weeks’ worth of “playoff mentality” motivation is no longer valid.
