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

This yearâs Egg Bowl matchup is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 26, in Oxford. The rivalry doesnât need any more fire behind it, but it may have that now with the Bulldogsâ omission.
