For the first time since 2009, Ole Miss will be playing in a bowl game. The bowl berth was even sweeter this season because the Rebels (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) captured it on the last game of the year against in-state rival No. 25 Mississippi State (8-4, 4-4 SEC), with a 41-24 win Saturday night in the annual Egg Bowl.

Highs:
Victory in the Swamp
In just his fourth game as the coach of the Rebels and coming off of a 23-17 home loss to Vanderbilt, Nutt secured his first signature win for Ole Miss with a 31-30 victory over No. 4 Florida. A Kentrell Lockett-blocked extra point proved to be the difference on the scoreboard and Marcus Temple stopped Tim Tebow on a fourth-down run to seal the victory. The win became even more impressive as the Gators went undefeated the rest of the season and won the BCS National Championship.

On the first play from scrimmage Saturday morning in Knoxville, it was easy to get the feeling that it just wasn’t going to be Ole Miss’ day. On that first play, Tennessee true freshman quarterback Tyler Bray fired a slant to receiver Justin Hunter. The ball hit Ole Miss linebacker Jonathan Cornell right in the hands, but he could not reel it in. Hunter did, and raced 80 yards for the opening score.
