MSU billboard upsets Ole Miss fans

(AP) - Mississippi State says it recruits athletes from far and wide.

In Oxford, University of Mississippi fans aren't happy.

WTVA-TV reports that an MSU billboard sits on a busy street in Oxford near the Ole Miss campus. It shows MSU football players holding up the Egg Bowl trophy next to the words "Play with the best."

Rebel fans say they feel MSU is rubbing in last year's win.

MSU officials said the billboard is only about recruitment. The billboard went up Jan. 1 and officials say it will remain up until the end of the month.
