The Armed Forces Bowl has been played every year since 2006. The game used to be known as the Fort Worth Bowl. It’s Tulsa’s third appearance in this game and Mississippi State’s first. The Golden Hurricane have lost both times they played in the bowl game.
Tulsa has had a solid season with Zach Smith leading the offense. Smith has 1,600 지나가는 야드와 12 이번 시즌 터치 다운 통과. Corey Taylor II leads the team with 431 rushing yards and three touchdowns. The team will not have Zaven Collins for this game. 콜린스, who is expected to be one of the top linebackers to be selected in next year’s draft, announced he would forgo the game to focus on his upcoming pro career.
It might open up a chance for the Bulldogs to end their disappointing season on a high note. Mississippi State only has three wins this season but got a bowl invite due to teams bowing out because of the coronavirus pandemic. The team started with a win against No. 6 LSU but lost four straight after that.
Freshman Will Rogers has been the starter recently. He has 1,828 지나가는 야드와 10 이번 시즌 터치 다운 통과. Jaden Walley leads the team with 48 잡다 691 yards and two touchdowns.
It’s Tulsa’s first bowl since 2016. Mississippi State has been in a bowl game since 2010. The team is on a two-game bowl game losing streak.
