Nutt Suspends WR Harris For Egg Bowl

Houston Nutt has suspended yet another player — the third in the last two weeks — leaving the Rebels without their leading receiver for Saturday’s Egg Bowl.

Sophomore Melvin Harris will not play against Mississippi State for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The 6-7 Harris has 30 catches for 408 yards on the season.

Don’t Expect A High-Scoring Egg Bowl

If you’re planning on wagering on the over/under line for Saturday’s Egg Bowl, keep the following in mind:

In 17 of the last 22 Egg Bowl games, the two teams combined for less than 45 points.  That’s less than a 24-21 game.  Less than a 31-14 game. 

Last year was one of the exceptions, however.  Dan Mullen won his Egg Bowl debut 41-27 and even took a knee twice deep in Rebel territory to close out the game.  Those 41 points were the most scored by MSU in the series since 1917.

But don’t expect 68 points to be scored again this year.  At least not if recent history has anything to do with it. 

A little sidenote of trivia for you — Ole Miss leads the all-time series 60-40-6, but things have changed since the game moved away from Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson nearly two decades ago.  It’s the Bulldogs who hold a 10-9 advantage since the series moved back to a campus rotation.
