Change Of Plans: Louisville To Mississippi State In Music City Bowl

When initially accepting an invitation to the Music City Bowl, all signs pointed to the Tennessee Vols being Louisville’s opponent, but a last minute twist has changed that.

It’s now official that Louisville will be taking on Mississippi State instead of Tennessee.

Scott Satterfield held a press conference on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 to discuss the Cards invitation to the Music City Bowl. Midway through the presser, after spending some time discussing Tennessee being their bowl opponent, we learned that it’ll be Mississippi State instead of the Vols.

Matt Jones of KSR has info on what led to the SEC switching around which teams would be playing in the league’s slotted bowl games.

It sounds like Tennessee didn’t want to play in the Music City Bowl and preferred the Gator Bowl instead. Looks like they got their way.

What a bizarre day.
