The event has become a yearly tradition in the days leading up to the Egg Bowl game between arch-rivals Mississippi State and Ole Miss.

Mississippi State’s ROTC unit ran the game ball from Starkville to Calhoun City and hand-delivered the ball to their counterparts from Ole Miss.
Ole Miss’ unit then carried the ball back to Oxford where this year’s game will be.
Calhoun City is the midpoint between the two campuses.
The two ROTC units swap roles each year.
