Defensive end Preston Smith played in Ladd-Peebles Stadium in September against South Alabama.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pounder from Stone Mountain, Ga., will make a return trip to Mobile in January after accepting an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.

Smith has made 35 tackles and leads the team with 12.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks. He has also forced two fumbles, blocked two kicks and made two interceptions – one of which he returned for a 21-yard touchdown.

Smith was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week for three consecutive weeks to start the season. He becomes the second straight Bulldog to receive a Senior Bowl invite joining Gabe Jackson.


I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
