Not a great Thanksgiving for Ole Miss, who lost the 116th Egg Bowl in nonsensical fashion last night.
It was 21-14 Mississippi State, late in the fourth quarter, when the Rebels capped off a 12 play, 82 yard drive with a short touchdown pass to receiver Elijah Moore.
Moore then decided to celebrate by emulating the Odell Beckham Jr. “urinating dog” celebration, which moved the extra point back 15 yards.
This happened next:
An insane finish to the #EggBowl as Ole Miss’ Elijah Moore picks up late unsportsmanlike call for breaking out the dog peeing TD celebration.
The Rebels would go on the miss the pushed back game-tying PAT. 😳 🤦♂️

Mississippi State 21, Ole Miss 20.
Outrageous way to cap off a 4-8 season for the Rebels. MSU got to 6-6 with the win, which made them bowl eligible.
But if we’ve learned anything from this episode, it’s that the urinating dog celebration is probably a bad idea.
