Mississippi State football

Mississippi State running back Kylin Hill (8) plays against Louisville in the second half of the Music City Bowl.

Mississippi State football saw its season end with a 38-28 loss to Louisville on Monday in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee.

It was not the end that the Bulldogs or running back Kylin Hill would have scripted.

Hill was unsuccessful in his attempt to set the record for the most rushing yards in a single season in school history.

He needed 45 yards on Monday to top the list, however he was banged up on the game’s first play from scrimmage and never really got going.

At the end of the day, Hill could only manage 3 yards on seven attempts.

“Yeah, very disappointing,” Moorhead said of Hill getting hurt early on his way to trying to break the record. “Certainly a base run play, you're not anticipating that happening, but he tried to fight through it. That's a credit to him and his toughness and what he thinks of his teammates.”

Hill’s 3 yards of rushing against Louisville was his lowest output in any game this season. He concluded the year with 1,350 yards of rushing, which ends up as the fourth-most in a single season in school history.
