The 2017 TaxSlayer Bowl takes place Saturday, Dec. 30, at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.
Louisville (8-4) meets Mississippi State (8-4) in this year’s game. ESPN will televise the game live beginning at 11 a.m. Central (noon Eastern).
There’s nothing traditional or glamorous about the TaxSlayer Bowl at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. However, while the name may not conjure up one of the more historic college football bowl games, this may be one fans don’t want to miss.
That’s because this game will be the final opportunity to watch Lamar Jackson play for the Louisville Cardinals (8-4) as his team prepares to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs (8-4).
20-year-old has a future in the NFL, but he will not be given an opportunity to run as much at the next level. He is clearly the centerpiece of the Louisville offense; if he is having a good day, the Cardinals have an excellent chance to win the game.
While it may seem otherwise, Louisville is not a one-man team. Wideout Jaylen Smith is a big part of the offense, catching 53 passes for 873 yards and six touchdowns. Dez Fitzpatrick has also had a big year with 45 catches for 699 yards and nine touchdowns, while Seth Dawkins has caught 39 passes for 604 yards and four touchdowns.
Malik Williams has helped Jackson out in the running game with 518 yards, an 8.4 yards-per-carry mark and four touchdowns
