The 2017 SEC schedules were released on Tuesday night, but when Mississippi State released its official schedule via Twitter, one team curiously wasnâ€™t mentioned.

This yearâ€™s Egg Bowl matchup is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 26, in Oxford. The rivalry doesnâ€™t need any more fire behind it, but it may have that now with the Bulldogsâ€™ omission.
