Tensions boiled over after Mississippi State edged out a close 24-22 win over Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving Day, with Rebels fans launching objects onto the field.
Bulldogs players were celebrating their win and began taunting the fans when trash and a chair came flying in their direction.

Luckily, the players didn’t seem to be impacted by the chair being thrown in their direction and no one was injured during the chaos.
It wasn’t the first time on Thursday night that Ole Miss fans began throwing objects onto the field, with the Rebels faithful launching beer cans and trash onto the field earlier in the fourth quarter after a controversial fumble review. Mississippi State was awarded the ball after a pass from Jaxson Dart was determined to be a backward pass.
With the loss, the No. 20 Rebels fell to 8-4 on the year, while Mississippi State advanced to the same mark.
