Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - This year's Music City Bowl will kick off at 11 a.m. CST Dec. 31 at LP Field in Nashville.

Bowl officials announced Monday that ESPN, which will broadcast the game, set the time.

The game pits teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Southeastern Conference.

Brad Lampley, bowl chairman, said the game could draw a record number of out-of-town visitors who also will be attracted by New Year's Eve activities in Nashville.

Mississippi State beat Wake Forest 23-17 in last season's game before a crowd of 55,208.
