NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Fan activities have already started for this year’s Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in downtown Nashville.

Mississippi State (6-6) will face Louisville (7-5) in this SEC/ACC matchup. Kickoff is set for 3:05 p.m. CBS Sports says the Bulldogs are 4.5-point favorites.

The Fan Zone at Nissan Stadium opened at 10 a.m. and will close at 9 p.m. Gary LeVox, of Rascal Flatts fame, will host and headline the “Black Tie Country Concert Series.” Craig Campbell and Parmalee are also on the lineup.

If you’re looking to take in a Nashville culinary staple, there’s a Hot Chicken eating contest. If you need something a little less spicy, there's also a hot dog eating contest.
