Underdogs have won three of the last four matchups, as the 2019 installment watched Louisville capture a 38-28 victory over Mississippi State as a short underdog. The 'over' cashed with a late push and is on a 3-0 run in this bowl matchup.

Kentucky has made the most appearances in this bowl with six, followed by Minnesota with three visits to Nashville since 2002.

In 2020, the COVID-19 global pandemic wiped out the game. The bowl returned on Dec. 30, 2021, and it was worth the two-year wait. Tennessee and Purdue played in front of a sold-out crowd at Nissan Stadium. In a wild game with many twists and turns, Purdue outlasted Tennessee 48-45 in overtime.

Louisville became the fifth team to win multiple Music City Bowls in 2019. The Cardinals joined Auburn and Vanderbilt as teams that are 2-0 in this game, and Minnesota is 2-1.

Kentucky hasn’t had as much luck, with a record of 2-3 in five bowl appearances.

Alabama is the only team to make multiple appearances at the Music City Bowl and not pick up a win. The Crimson Tide fell to Virginia Tech in the inaugural Music City Bowl, and they couldn’t get past Minnesota in 2004.
