Before you consider your Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State picks or college football predictions, you need to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,700 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It also enters Week 13 of the 2021 season on a 39-25 run on all top-rated college football side picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows Mississippi State posted a 21-20 victory when it last hosted the Egg Bowl in 2019. The Bulldogs are coming off their fourth victory in five contests, a 55-10 rout of Tennessee State on Saturday in which they racked up 600 yards of total offense - including 493 through the air. Sophomore quarterback Will Rogers was 28-of-34 for 391 yards and five touchdowns, marking the third straight game in which he threw at least four scoring passes.

The model also knows Ole Miss owns a 63-46-6 record in the all-time series between the in-state rivals and a 57-29-5 mark since the Egg Bowl originated in 1927. The Rebels, who posted a 31-24 victory at home in last year's installment, defeated Vanderbilt 31-17 on Saturday for their third consecutive win and sixth in seven contests. Junior signal-caller Matt Corral threw for 326 yards and two TDs while junior running back Jerrion Ealy ran for a score and hauled in a touchdown pass.
