It looks like MSU vs. Rice in the Liberty Bowl is a go

All day long we've seen bowl matchups start leaking out, and we now have our first confirmation that MSU will play C-USA champion Rice in the Liberty Bowl.


The worst kept secret in the state of Mississippi this bowl season is one step closer to being official, as local Memphis reporter Andy Real reports that Mississippi State and Rice will play in the 2013 AutoZone Liberty Bowl on December 31, 2013.

The Owls, 10-3, earned their berth in the Memphis-based bowl Saturday with a 41-24 win over Marshall in the Conference USA championship game.

The Bulldogs will officially announce a bowl destination later this evening.

We'll have more about the matchup, the Owls, and the bowl later after the official announcement comes.

For now, listen to some Three Six Mafia to celebrate!

UPDATE: further confirmation of the choice
