Ole Miss lose Golden Egg after wide receiver’s dog-pee celebration

Elijah Moores attempt to leave his mark on Mississippi State territory penalised as unsportsmanlike conduct

Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore cost his team a chance to win the Golden Egg on Thursday night, after he celebrated a key touchdown with four seconds left by pretending to pee like a dog.

The effort to leave his mark on Mississippi State territory was penalised as unsportsmanlike conduct, meaning the extra point attempt was moved back 15 yards.

The penalty prevented Mississippi from going for a winning two-point conversion but they could still have taken the game to overtime.

In the event, Rebels kicker Luke Logan missed the 35-yard shot and Mississippi State escaped with a 21-20 victory in the 116th Egg Bowl. The Golden Egg is the trophy awarded to the winners of the keenly fought rivalry game.

Thats not who we are, Matt Luke, Rebels coach, told reporters after the game, skirting the fact that it is only two years since an Ole Miss player was penalised for precisely the same thing.

In 2017, receiver DK Metcalf celebrated a touchdown by mimicking a micturating mutt and was penalised the same way, losing 15 yards. Ole Miss hung on to win that game, 31-28, thereby taking the Golden Egg back to Oxford.

Metcalf was apparently copying NFL star Odell Beckham Jr, who also incurred a 15-yard penalty during a game for the New York Giants against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Beckham explained himself thus: Im in the end zone. Im a dog. So I acted like a dog. He was fined a little over $12,000.

On Thursday night, Luke said: Weve been a disciplined team all year, and so just disappointed that happened. Thats not who he is. Elijah is a good kid, and he just got caught up in the moment.

Luke said he knew that as emotions flared showboating would need to be avoided.

We talked about it, he said. We had five penalties. We just wanted to play a clean game. Nothing after the whistles or before the whistles was going to help us win the ballgame.

Ole Miss quarterback John Rhys Plumlee told the Oxford Eagle: When youre excited and you make a big play, you celebrate a little bit. That call just didnt go our way Its an emotional game and thats part of it sometimes.
