Mississippi State will head to the Music City for its record 10th straight bowl appearance, as the Bulldogs have accepted a bid to the 2019 Music City Bowl to take on Louisville on December 30th. This will be State’s second trip to Nashville, having defeated Wake Forest 23-17 in 2011.

The Bulldogs will head to the home of the Tennessee Titans riding a two game winning streak and coming off an emotional 21-20 win over Ole Miss that vaulted MSU into the postseason. Joe Moorhead will look for his first postseason win as head coach of the Bulldogs, having dropped a 27-22 decision to Iowa in the Outback Bowl last season. The Bulldogs are 13-9 in bowl games all time. State will take on Louisville, who finished the season at 7-5. The two teams have met in the postseason once before, with the Bulldogs taking a 31-27 win the then TaxSlayer Bowl in 2017.
