- Of Interest | Bulldogs look to extend nation's longest bowl winning streak (via MSU game notes):
Mississippi State defeated Wake Forest, 23-17, in last year's Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, a fifth-straight bowl victory, tied with Rutgers for the nation's longest active bowl winning streak. The Bulldogs are making their third-straight bowl appearance for the second time in school history (1998-2000) and are looking to capture a bowl victory in three-straight years for the first time in school history.
