The Battle for the Lil’ Brown Jug resumes the fall in the great state of Mississippi. Last season, this series played its 100th game where Laurel High School scored half a century worth of points in a 50-0 win. This is Mississippi’s longest continuously played high school game. This game draws one of the largest crowds of the season and brings out former alumni along with fans of football. The story of the Lil Brown Jug originated from opposing fans betting a jar of moonshine on the outcome of the game. Another story is that the game stole it from the Minnesota-Michigan rivalry who played for a jug 19 years before this rivalry started. No matter which story you believe in, you must see this game. Hattiesburg looks to take the jug back this season when they host this historic rivalry.
