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.

Calhoun City is the mid-point between Oxford and Starkville.
After receiving the game ball, MSU cadets then carried it to Starkville, where the football game will be held on Thanksgiving night.
Once at MSU, the cadets will present the ball to head football coach Joe Moorhead.
The Egg Bowl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday.
