Louisville QB Lamar Jackson reaches 50 rushing, 50 passing TDs

Mississippi State players get a catered barbecue lunch before touring ships at the Mayport Naval Base

Fans of both teams may be in for a ride such as the Alamo Bowl, in which TCU rallied from 18 points behind to beat Stanford 39-37; the Foster Farms Bowl, in which Purdue beat Arizona 38-35; or the Birmingham Bowl, which saw South Florida quarterback Quinton Flowers cap a 31-point fourth quarter with a late TD pass to beat Texas Tech 38-34.

Those seems about as close to a given as possible considering Jackson's year. Louisville lost to LSU 29-9 in last year's Citrus Bowl in Orlando. The associated moneylines for this game are Louisville -250 and Mississippi State +230.

NOTES: Lamar Jackson is the only player in FBS history to rush for at least 1,500 yards and pass for at least 3,500 yards in a season.

Ukraine and separatists begin largest prisoner exchange of conflict
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko praised the Ukrainian prisoners held by the rebels for their endurance. Journalists, activists and bloggers who had been accused of spying or treason were among those released .

They enter this game ranked 23rd in the country in rushing, averaging 249.9 yards per game. That mark was also a new TaxSlayer Bowl record for rushing yards, breaking the previous mark set by West Virginia's Pat White. Thompson is the first true freshman to start under center for MSU since Damian Williams got the nod in the Egg Bowl versus Ole Miss on November 28, 2013.

Mississippi State landed not one, but two All-SEC first-team selections on defense in Sweat and Simmons (above, right). Louisville's offensive line will have its hands full trying to contain the powerful duo.

Louisville appeared to be driving down the field for a game-winning score until Jackson threw his fourth interception of the day, giving Mississippi State the ball back with just 2:31 left.

Triple Talaq in any form including spoken, in writing or by electronic means such as email, SMS or WhatsApp would be banned. Unlike most Hindu civil laws, which have been codified and reformed, Muslim personal laws have largely been left untouched.

While the loss of quarterback Nick Fitzgerald and Mullen dampen some of the enthusiasm for this game, don't expect those losses to impact Mississippi State's intensity in Jacksonville.

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. "I just felt I owed that to them". In what's likely to be his last collegiate game, Jackson should again impress with a dazzling performance.

Petrino is appreciative of getting one more chance to coach Jackson. A sports reporter for The Meridian Star, Hayes also has been an invited guest on "The Paul Finebaum Show".
