CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss' ROTC and Mississippi State's ROTC met up in Calhoun City to exchange the Egg Bowl's game ball.

It's a recently new tradition for the rivals. 

Ole Miss' cadets set out running from Oxford early Monday morning and met MSU's cadets around noontime in the meeting place, designated as the midpoint between the two schools. 

MSU's cadets then started running for Starkville to deliver the big game's ball. 

Both schools' fans are always excited.

"This is my fourth year coming. I think it's a pretty big deal for Calhoun City so...Hail State every year," said Mark Lonlino.

"Hotty Toddy," yells Doug Russell.

ESPN will air the Egg Bowl this Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
