Mississippi State head football coach Dan Mullen will team with former Bulldog fullback Fred McCrary for the fifth time to compete in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge, a charity golf tournament held at Reynolds Plantation near Lake Okonee in Georgia.

This year’s event tees off from April 26-28 and will be aired on ESPNU during August and December.

Three-time champions Paul Johnson and Jon Barry are back representing Georgia Tech. Mullen and McCrary finished four shots behind the Yellow Jacket team last year firing nine under par and raising $70,000 for charity.

The Bulldogs’ duo have raised $135,000 at the event total.

A total purse of $520,000 will be awarded this year with the winning team of the 13 participants earning $125,000 for charity.

Other Southeastern Conference combinations this year include Nick Saban and Mark Ingram of Alabama, Gus Malzahn and Bo Jackson of Auburn, Hugh Freeze and Sean Tuohy of Ole Miss and two-time champions Steve Spurrier and Sterling Sharpe of South Carolina.

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.
