It’s a nice slate of bowl games this season and this should be a good one. In this game the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Louisville Cardinals face off in the Music City Bowl in Nashville.
These teams faced off in 2017 with the Bulldogs coming out ahead 31-27.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
Who would have thought a guy celebrating like a dog peeing in the end zone would be enough for the Mississippi State Bulldogs to make a bowl game. There was a chance they could have still made it if that celebration wouldn’t have happened, but it made sure they were playing in this game.
The Bulldogs offense hasn’t been elite this year averaging 27.1 points per game and the defense is giving up 28.1 points per game.
On offense the Bulldogs have had issues with their two quarterbacks which has made them a run first team. At quarterback it’s unclear who is going to go in this game. Tommy Stevens is dealing with an injury and it’s not positive he is going to go in this game.
If he can’t go it will be Garrett Shrader who gets the start. So far this season he has thrown for 1170 yards, eight touchdowns, and five interceptions.
They are also facing a good offensive team so it’s going to be important the offense steps up and slows down the Cardinals offense.
On the other side of this matchup is the Louisville Carindals who were expected to have a really down year, but that hasn’t been the case. They have won seven games this season, but a loss in their last game in blowout fashion against Kentucky has to have them motivated in this game.
On the season the Cardinals are averaging 32.7 points per game on offense while the defense is giving up 28.1 points per game.
At quarterback the Cardinals are led by sophomore Micale Cunningham who comes into this game having thrown for 1782 yards, 20 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
In this game it’s all going to be about the offense running up the score. If the offense can run up the score they should have no issue winning this game.
