Dawgs set a record for points scored and Tech sets one for most punts. Seems like a fair trade.

Elijah Moore, Matt Luke and Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter all managed the obligatory apology after Moore’s on field display of doggy-style urination helped cause the Rebels to blow a shot at taking the Egg Bowl to overtime.
Keeping in the spirit of the moment, though, the apologies were only extended to Moore’s teammates, coaches and Ole Miss fans — not to Mississippi State. Some bridges are too far, you know.
I had a lot of folks reach out yesterday after Virginia finally ended a fifteen-year (!) losing streak to its hated in-state rival, which was damned nice, considering. Some asked me how the win felt in comparison to Georgia winning.
All I can tell you is I felt the same way watching this play unfold…

“The person who sits in the upper deck, the top row, now has the same sort of amenity as the person who has the private suite,” said athletic director Ross Bjork.
Can somebody please help Greg McGarity? I can hear his coughing spell all the way down here in Atlanta. Get him a glass of water or something.
