Egg Bowl brawl breaks out and all players on both sides receive unsportsmanlike penalties

November 23, 2018

There was quite a scramble at the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving night.

Four players were ejected from the game between Mississippi and Mississippi State after a fight at the end of the third quarter.

Ole Miss appeared to score a touchdown on the final play of the quarter when A.J. Brown crossed the goal line. Players started shoving immediately after the play, and the fight spilled over across the end zone with several punches thrown. Both benches emptied onto the field before order was restored.

Brown’s touchdown was called back because time had expired in the third quarter. No. 22 Mississippi State was leading 28-3 at the end of the period.

Every player on both teams received an unsportsmanlike penalty. Mississippi State’s Willie Gay Jr., Jamal Peters and Cameron Dantzler, and Ole Miss’ C.J. Moore, were ejected. Gay was ejected because he already had one unsportsmanlike penalty earlier in the game.
