Bowl games: Know before you go

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Alcorn State are all going bowling this year. 

Many Mississippians will be hitting the road to see their teams play. Here's what you need to know.

Ole Miss - Sugar Bowl

The Ole Miss Rebels are getting a Sugar Bowl bid for the first time in 45 years. They were ranked Number 12 in the final College Football Playoff poll. 

Ole Miss will face #16 Oklahoma State on New Year's Day night at 7 in New Orleans.  

You can get your tickets directly through the Sugar Bowl. Don't forget, it's the SEC's turn to be the home team, so if you are an Ole Miss fan you will want to get West Side seats. 

Both schools are likely to sell out of their ticket allotments, but if you are a student or a season ticket holder you have a better chance of scoring some seats. 

Tickets directly from the Sugar Bowl start out at about $150 for nose bleeds, but the highest priced ticket we found was $1,379 for Row 4 in the lower level section. 

You can also get tickets through sites like StubHub. Those tickets start out at $121 but can go as high as $1,499.

Mississippi State - Belk Bowl

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are heading to the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, North Carolina to face NC State.

The Bulldogs finished their regular season 8-and-4 and NC State was at 7-and-5. 

Kickoff for that game will be at 2:30 pm on December 30. 

Bulldog fans can get their tickets directly through the Belk Bowl website.  Tickets are going as low at $41 and as high as $140. You can also purchase tickets through sites like Vivid Seats

Southern Mississippi - Heart of Dallas Bowl

The Golden Eagles are going bowling, too. It's the first time since 1999 that Ole Miss, State, and Southern Miss ALL play in the postseason.

The Golden Eagles will fly to Texas for the Heart of Dallas Bowl. They won the Conference USA West division but fell to Western Kentucky in the title game.

The 9-and-4 Golden Eagles will take on Washington the day after Christmas at 1:20 pm.

Southern Miss fans can get tickets to the game directly from the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Tickets start out at $25 and go up to $125. Tickets can also be purchased through sites like Vivid Seats
