Liberty Bowl — Mississippi State 44 Rice 7

What I said:

"Mississippi State is favored in this game by a touchdown, but I think Rice will cap off their season with a nice win. The Bulldogs will fall below .500 with the loss. Rice 30 Mississippi State 24"

I thought Rice would take Mississippi State by surprise, but it was abundantly clear early in the game the Bulldogs were way too much for Rice. Mississippi State finished the season with a winning record with the victory.
