The Taxslayer Bowl may end up as the highest scoring bowl game of the season. QB Lamar Jackson, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner will start what is likely to be his last college game. He might not have received the same credit as last year when he burst onto the scene, but he arguably had a better year.

He became more of a pocket passer and led the nation in total yardage with 4932 (3489 passing, 1443 rushing). He threw 25TDs, ran in another 17 and threw just six interceptions.

The Cardinals rebounded from a 5-4 start to win their final three games, scoring 138 points in the process.

Mississippi State also finished 8-4, but had one of the toughest schedules in the country. Three of their losses were to Georgia, Auburn and Alabama, each ranked in the top-four during the last month of the season. The last was to in-state rivals Ole Miss.

They scored 34 or more points seven times this season and were a running team, finish 14th averaging 249.6 YPG. The defense was also strong, allowing 20.4 PPG.
