||Pigskins in the Park!
TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — It's not often that Ole Miss and Mississippi State fans tailgate together.
But, since the teams played away Saturday, fans set the rivalry aside and grabbed their lawn chairs for the third annual Pigskins at the Park event.
Pigskins at the Park is put on by C-Spire, Renasant Bank and the Downtown Main Street Association.
Fans packed Fair Park in Tupelo for the event, where there was a jumbo screen that played the Ole Miss and Mississippi State games.
"It's such a great event that we wanted to bring it back," Amy Goff with C-Spire said. "Particularly this year because both teams are so great. It's such a tribute to our state."'
C-Spire also held a tailgating contest to see who showed off their team's colors the best.
The winner was given an iPad Mini.
