STARKVILLE, Miss. (WLOX) - The Mississippi State Bulldogs are set to kick off against Tulsa in the Armed Forces Bowl at 11 am on Tuesday.
Tulsa’s lone two losses this year came in week one at Oklahoma State, and in the conference championship against undefeated Cincinnati.
A battle-tested group will certainly challenge Mike Leach and the Bulldogs in what has been an overall wild season.
“It’s not the traditional bowl schedule where you can really work your guys a lot. You know, it’s more like a game week for a road game,” Leach said. “They [Tulsa] play together well. They’re a little bit older group so you know those guys are used to playing with one another. I would say the overall execution is probably the biggest thing.”
