Ole Miss currently ranks as a consensus top 15 class among the major recruiting websites. Despite dropping the Egg Bowl Thanksgiving night, the Rebels are still in position to remain the best team in Mississippi.
Let’s take a look at the top prospects in the state:

6′ 3″, 308
6′ 1″, 195
6′ 2″, 185

Ole Miss finished the regular season at 7-5 with substantial injuries to several key players. They had notable wins over LSU, Vanderbilt, and Texas. Two of which were on the road. Hugh Freeze garnered a contract extension through 2017* and a million-dollar raise to an annual salary of $3 million, plus incentives for post season accomplishments and academic performance.
*Longest allowed by state law.
Mississippi State finished with a record of 6-6 with “notable” wins over Bowling Green and Kentucky, along with an OT win over the Rebels. Dan Mullen will retain his job, as expected regardless of the outcome of the Egg Bowl. Mississippi State, is behind, to say the least, in recruiting compared to Ole Miss with a class that ranks on average around 30th in the country.
Ole Miss and Mississippi State will both be bowl bound for consecutive seasons, with the Rebels visiting Nashville for the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, and the Bulldogs are headed to Memphis for the Autozone Liberty Bowl.
We aren’t were we want to be, but thank God we aren’t where we used to be.
