Ole Miss’ rivalry with LSU has recently overshadowed their traditional rivalry with Mississippi State, at least according to football fans in Mississippi. In each of the past four seasons, tickets to Ole Miss’ game against LSU have been more expensive than tickets to the Egg Bowl.
The last two seasons have seen a revival in Rebels football. Over the 2014 and ‘15 seasons, Rebels tickets have averaged $90 on the secondary market. That’s 34 percent more expensive than the average Ole Miss ticket in the 2010 through ‘13 seasons, when tickets averaged $67.
