Louisville vs. Mississippi State, TaxSlayer Bowl 2017 live stream

Louisville vs. Mississippi State, TaxSlayer Bowl 2017 live stream

In the first half of the TaxSlayer Bowl against Mississippi State, the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor threw for 107 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

However, anything can happen in bowl games, and it's clear Gonzales will be watching and rooting for the players he spent the 2017 season with. Louisville lost to LSU 29-9 in last year's Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

"Jackson surely wants a better performance than his last bowl game, a 29-9 loss to LSU in last year's Citrus Bowl". It's the first game of the post-Dan Mullen era, with the Bulldogs taking on a former Heisman Trophy victor in Louisville QB Lamar Jackson. Jackson broke free for a 75-yard run, the longest of his career, and then found Jaylen Smith in the end zone for an 11-yard touchdown on the next play. Star quarterback Nick Fitzgerald tore his ACL.

They enter this game ranked 23rd in the country in rushing, averaging 249.9 yards per game.

The Bulldogs have been solid against the run, holding opponents to just 127 rushing yards per game thus far, which translates to 3.73 yards per carry. "It seems like throughout the game of football, you're seeing more points".

Mississippi State landed not one, but two All-SEC first-team selections on defense in Sweat and Simmons (above, right).

Jackson completed 10 of 27 passes for 153 yards and ran 26 times for 33 yards, including eight sacks.

Although some Mississippi State fans are still bitter about former head coach Dan Mullen's departure, there's no denying he had made the Bulldogs relevant again, leaving behind a wealth of talent for new head coach Joe Moorhead.

As usual, offenses are running rampant during the bowl season.

According to the Florida Times-Union, Jackson plans to announce whether he will enter the National Football League draft or return for his senior season sometime after the bowl game. The game is expected to be Jackson's collegiate finale, although he's keeping his future plans under wraps for now.

"A lot of preparation time gives you a lot of time to scheme up some things", Knox said on Friday during the final TaxSlayer Bowl news conferences of the week.
