SMITH COLUMN: SHS, Oxford has the making of good rivalry

August 27, 2013

There's a little rivalry brewing early in the high school football season.
It's only week two and there's already a game on the schedule that has a chance to capture the interest of the two schools participating.
As if Starkville High School didn't have enough games on the schedule that cause fans to get especially excited to see their team compete well and have the chance to beat an opponent, here comes another in Oxford.
The matchup between the Yellowjackets and Chargers Friday in Starkville has been promoted as "The Little Egg Bowl."
On the college level, Mississippi State and Ole Miss play every year for the Golden Egg Trophy. It's officially called the Battle for the Golden Egg and some refer to it as the Egg Bowl.
The idea of the Little Egg Bowl between SHS and Oxford is something the Jackets and Chargers hope catches on and becomes an annual event.
