Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke kisses the Egg Bowl trophy, "The Golden Egg," after the Rebels stunned No. 16 Mississippi State last year in Starkville. Luke didn't have the permanent head coaching job secured until the latest win in the MSU rivalry. Now the question lingers: Will Luke still be the head coach after the 2018 Egg Bowl in Oxford in one week? With the recent resignation of Ole Miss Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter rumors are flying around Rebel-Nation concerning Athletic Director Ross Bjork's future as well as that of Luke and likely several assistants. Stay tuned for the latest developments in the Ole Miss football saga. And enjoy the Egg Bowl next Thursday, Nov. 22. Then make your way back to Alcorn County for the 6th Annual Lighthouse Classic next Friday and Saturday, Nov. 23 and 24, at Corinth High School.
