The Ole Miss Rebels were able to get the Golden Egg back to Oxford after a wild, up-and-down affair at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium this past Saturday, winning 31-24 over the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Lane Kiffin and Co. were able to ride a steady output from the offense and a surprisingly inspiring effort from DJ Durkin and Chris Partridge's defense, holding Mississippi State to just 39 yards rushing and an abysmal 3-for-14 night on third down.
I reached out to 2021 and 2022 prospects to get their thoughts on the game. So let's get right to it and see what they had to say.

Great game. Ole Miss was ready. It was fun to watch.

Very impressive win. Glad that the Rebels got back to winning the Egg Bowl. Offense may be one the best in the country.
— Carter Edwards
I enjoyed the game, but I also saw that I could make a big impact on either team!
— Calvin Johnson
I love how competitive the game is every year. Pretty much everyone in Mississippi takes pride in one of the two teams so it’s definitely a lot of fun when they square up. I thought both teams played great and the future is bright for both. The Ole Miss offense is simply on a different level in college football. They play fast and they’re fun to watch.
— Blake Gunter
I thought it was a good game, close game at the end! Could see myself playing for both of those teams in the future!
