1983 Egg Bowl--The Immaculate Deflection--still center stage for Ole Miss and Mississippi State

Mississippi State players celebrate
after winning the 2013 Egg Bowl

This year's annual Egg Bowl game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State shapes up as one of the most anticipated in the long history of the series. It's been a historic season for both teams, as they have spent much of the year unbeaten, ranked in the top five in the country, and thinking about a national championship. The Rebels' championship hopes have taken a hit recently with two straight losses and the devastating injury to receiver Laquon Treadwell.

Fans can only hope that this year's Egg Bowl, played November 29 in Oxford, matches the drama, excitement, and intensity of the 1983 game. That game played in Jackson is still talked about more than 30 years later. Brad Schultz and Terry Smith look at a game that has come to be known as The Immaculate Deflection.
