Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen (center) and quarterback Dak Prescott (left) want to end the season with a win.STARKVLLE – Mississippi State’s final game this season won’t be revealed until Sunday, but the strongest candidate for the Bulldogs’ school-record sixth-straight bowl appearance appears to be the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, North Carolina.The Dec. 30 kickoff features Carrie Underwood as a pregame performer, and the Los Angeles Lakers and the Kobe Bryant farewell tour are in Charlotte two days before that. The Bulldogs won’t be traveling for the entertainment, though.“Go get a win. That’s how this team’s going to be remembered,” quarterback Dak Prescott said. “Go get the bowl win and finish off this season on the right way for this team.”Fifteen MSU seniors will play their final game in about a month. Prescott returned specifically to finish his career on a high. The Bulldogs (8-4, 4-4 SEC) have lost two of three games to end the regular season, however, including Saturday’s Egg Bowl defeat.Mississippi State lost the Orange Bowl last season to finish with one win in its final four games.MSU is a bowl loss away from repeating the ending.“This is kind of what we base our program on,” wide receiver Fred Ross said. “That’s just finishing. Just playing hard, going out there, just dominating whoever we play.”The Bulldogs entered the 2015 season high off its historic 2014 performance. Mississippi State played in its first Orange Bowl in seven decades after reaching No. 1 for five weeks earlier in the year.Nationally, many expected major regression from the program. The Southeastern Conference media picked MSU to finish last in the West and 13th overall.Instead, MSU rebounded from two losses in the first month of the season and had a chance for a second-place finished entering the Egg Bowl.“An 8-4 season is pretty remarkable by this group of young men to be honest with you,” coach Dan Mullen said. “For them to do that, I don’t think anybody in the entire United States (gave us a chance), all of you guys gave us absolutely zero chance to be successful before the season.”The 2014 season started with momentum gained from the 2013 Liberty Bowl. Mississippi State beat Rice, 44-7, behind six touchdowns from Prescott. It also capped off the season with three-straight wins.“We just want to go out a winner,” senior Taveze Calhoun said. “Our team is like a family. Everybody just wants to send the seniors out the right way with a win. Just some momentum going into next year.”Mississippi State is already accepting ticket orders for their bowl game. In addition to the Belk Bowl, MSU lists the Texas Bowl, Liberty Bowl, Music City Bowl and TaxSlayer Bowl as possibilities.Wherever the destination, this year’s senior class already has two bowl losses on its resume. They want to finish on a high note.“I love my teammates, I love my school, it’s just a blessing to be able to wear the maroon and white one more time,” Calhoun said. “I’m just going to try to take advantage of the opportunity.”Contact Michael Bonner at [email protected] Follow @MikeBBonner on Twitter.
