The news comes as hardly a surprise, as Mississippi State tweeted from its official football account that Moorhead was scheduled to arrive in Starksville late this afternoon. Penn State has not yet announced an interim play caller for the bowl game.

Both schools will find out their bowl destination on Sunday.
