Betting History Of The Music City Bowl

The first-ever Music Bowl featured the Virginia Tech Hokies against the Alabama Crimson Tide back in 1998. Unfortunately, that first game was successfully taken by the Hokies, who handed the Crimson Tide a solid 38-7 defeat.

Two years later, West Virginia faced Ole Miss Rebels, and, in a game that recorded one of the largest scores, the Mountaineers walked away with a 49-38 score and almost broke the 50-point mark.

It wouldn’t be until the 2018 edition of the Music Bowl, when the Auburn Tigers faced the Purdue Boilermakers, that numbers would run high. That year, the Tigers easily surpassed the Boilermakers to finish with a 63-14 win over Purdue, making it the highest score ever recorded in the history of the Music Bowl.

SEC schools lead with the most appearances, the most wins, and even the most defeats in the history of the Music Bowl. The Kentucky Wildcats and the Minnesota Golden Gophers also lead as the two schools with the most wins recorded in the history of the Music Bowl, with two victories each.
