Two teams going in the same direction met in Starkville but someone was bound to win. Never mind Mississippi State has lost 9 of its last 10, Ole Miss hasn't played much better losing 7 of 8. Rod Barnes guys came in riding a huge win over Arkansas earlier this week maybe that will give them some momentum...or maybe NOT. State tears the shirts off the Rebel's backs in front of the home crowd. Jamont Gordon with a team high 17 points. This one was never close. Mississippi State wins in a blowout 84-55. It's the largest margin of victory in the series since 1995.
