Mississippi St earns bowl win, focuses on '18 with Moorhead

Mississippi State enjoyed nearly a decade of stability and success under former coach Dan Mullen, who left the program last month to take Florida's head coaching job.

Mullen moving elsewhere was jarring for the 24th-ranked Bulldogs, but Saturday's impressive win over Louisville in the TaxSlayer Bowl provides some proof that the good times might not be over in Starkville.

Mississippi State finished its season with a 9-4 record after beating Louisville 31-27 in Jacksonville, Florida. Mark McLaurin had three interceptions and freshman quarterback Keytaon Thompson - who was making his first career start in place of the injured Nick Fitzgerald - ran for 147 yards and three touchdowns.
