This serigraph depicts Mississippi State against their rival Auburn. In the background, Rick has incorporated into the image some of the MSU traditions and landmarks. Coach Jackie Sherrill is on the sidelines and behind him is the tower to the Chapel of Memories. MSU had the largest men’s dormitory in the United States until it burned to the ground. The bricks from the burned dorm building were used to build the chapel. In the right side of the background, Rick has the Egg Bowl Trophy. The winner of the hottest rivalry in the state, between MSU and Ole Miss, is awarded this trophy. In addition, at the bottom of the egg bowl trophy you can see the arm of one of the cheerleaders as he holds up a cowbell. MSU fans were known for their loud cowbells until the SEC disallowed them. Behind the cheerleader’s arm you can see the MSU mascot, “Bully.”
