With the launch of the SEC Network, Mississippi State fans have the opportunity to watch several of the most exciting moments in Mississippi State history among other programming. One of the first Mississippi State games to be replayed was the Gator Bowl victory over Michigan.
This got us to thinking about which Bulldog bowl game would be the favorite of Mississippi State fans, so we took to twitter and you answered.
The fact that the Gator Bowl victory over Michigan was the response of many fans came as no surprise given the beat down the Bulldogs dropped on their foe from the Big Ten.
@mstatesports That Gator Bowl— Mr. Blackmon (@stanleyeb_) August 17, 2014
However, some did not see the value in that bowl that others did.
@mstatesports look, I'm just gonna be honest. I went 2 MSU but bragging about winning the 2008 gator bowl makes us seem SUPER THIRSTY— Mikey Franks (@MikeyFranks) August 17, 2014
One bowl that did not get as much love as some would think was the 1999 Peach Bowl that capped one of the most exciting seasons at Mississippi State.
@mstatesports For me, it's easily the 99 Peach Bowl. Not really a close 2nd.— Brandon Wright (@wbwright) August 17, 2014
In what should not be much of a shock, the 2000 Independence Bowl, lovingly known as the Snow Bowl, popped up time and time again.
@mstatesports Good ole Snow Bowl!!! 2000 Independence Bowl.— Jeremy Forehand (@Jeremy4hand) August 17, 2014
@mstatesports 2000 Independence Bowl (Snow Bowl) and probably that 2011 Gator Bowl.— BLWedge09 (@BLWedge09) August 17, 2014
@mstatesports Snow Bowl against Texas A&M of course.— Chuck Phillips (@chuck129) August 17, 2014
Kyle Nibblet went outside the box with this one, and he has a good point.
@mstatesports The next one— Kyle Niblett (@KyleNiblett) August 17, 2014
Also, a good point was made as to what one would look for in a bowl game.
@mstatesports Could make a case for Gator over MI because of opponent, Snow Bowl for entertainment or Liberty over Rice for sheer dominance.— Justin Strawn (@JustinStrawnMWN) August 17, 2014
Then there were those who loved the classics.
@mstatesports 1912 Bacardi Bowl win over Havana Athletic Club. Ahh, I remember it like it was yesterday.— AdamMorrisonCrying (@morrisoncrying) August 17, 2014
@mstatesports Bacardi Bowl— #hailtothestate (@Msu_baseball) August 17, 2014
One bowl that did not make the list, and it is a little surprising that it did not, is the 1941 Orange Bowl victory over the Georgetown Hoyas. Of course, that game came a long time ago, and probably very few Mississippi State fans have ever seen the game.
