TaxSlayer Bowl: Lamar Jackson's mistake-filled day leads to Mississippi State win

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

Jackson's 50th career rushing touchdown came in the second quarter of Louisville's matchup against No. 23 Mississippi State in the Taxslayer Bowl. The true freshman backup tallied 274 total yards in his first career start.

Louisville quarterback and former Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson is likely to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft. Three of those INTs were by Mark McLaurin.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs take on the Louisville Cardinals in the TaxSlayer Bowl.

The holiday season bowls just keep on coming, don't they? That high-powered passing attack has enabled Memphis to average 50 points and over 500 yards in home games this season. Louisville answered with a nine-play, 51-yard touchdown drive, which was punctuated by a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jackson to Charles Standberry. This game's over/under comes in at a combined 63 points.

Mississippi State: Senior left tackle Martinas Rankin, expected to be the team's highest draft pick, sprained an ankle and was ruled out for the game. He too has earned multiple SEC defensive lineman of the week honors, and he also leads the FBS with three blocked kicks. Louisville's offensive line will have its hands full trying to contain the powerful duo.

Power outage disrupts Disneyland; guests taken off rides
A park spokesperson said power has been restored to a majority of the park, although though some rides may still be affected. A power outage at Disneyland , in Anaheim, California, took down about a dozen rides on Wednesday morning.

Louisville: Jackson needed more help - from his running backs, his receivers and his defense. The maroon and white have plenty of momentum entering 2018 under new head coach Joe Moorhead.

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.

The Bulldog offense will face a Louisville defense that ranks second in the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing defense (139.8). The quarterback must now decide whether to enter the 2018 National Football League draft or return for his senior season with the Cardinals.

This year's TaxSlayer Bowl promises to be one of the bowl season's best. A sports reporter for The Meridian Star, Hayes also has been an invited guest on "The Paul Finebaum Show".
