CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss ROTC cadets carried a football to Calhoun City where they gave the game ball to Mississippi State cadets in preparation for Thursday's Egg Bowl.

The "Egg Bowl run" is a relatively new tradition, but it's been a big hit each year.

Once at MSU, the cadets will present the ball to head football coach Joe Moorhead.
