EGG BOWL

The unlikely duo of Jaylen Walton and Jordan Wilkins led Mississippi to a resounding Egg Bowl upset.

Walton had a 91-yard touchdown run and Wilkins, a running back, threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to lead No. 18 Ole Miss over No. 4 Mississippi State 31-17 on Saturday.

The loss by Mississippi State means Alabama clinched the SEC Western Division. Dak Prescott threw for 282 yards and a touchdown.

It's the first time both teams came into the Egg Bowl ranked since 1999.

The loss is a severe blow to Mississippi State's hope of advancing to the inaugural College Football Playoff.

BLUEGRASS BRAWL

Pregame tensions between players from No. 24 Louisville and rival Kentucky evolved into a shoving match involving Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino, who was seen grabbing the jacket of Wildcats assistant Daniel Berezowitz in one scuffle.

Several confrontations preceded kickoff, the biggest of which occurred near midfield and cleared both benches. Coaches and officials jumped in to break up groups of players pushing and shoving each other, and the Kentucky Kernel newspaper tweeted a photo of Petrino grabbing Berezowitz, Kentucky's director of football recruiting operations, and appearing to yell at him.

No penalties were called as things calmed down, but the first quarter was physical as the Wildcats sacked Louisville freshman quarterback Reggie Bonnafon twice and decked him as he threw an interception leading to a Kentucky field goal.
