The Kentucky Wildcats and the Mississippi State Bulldogs will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field.

ABOUT KENTUCKY (5-1, 2-1 SEC): The Wildcats used last week’s bye to get healthy, as linebacker Jordan Jones looks ready to return this week. Kentucky’s duo of defensive end Josh Allen and linebacker Denzil Ware have combined for 19.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and 29 tackles for loss, helping the Wildcats rank 10th nationally in rushing defense. Running back Benny Snell Jr. is fifth in the SEC in rushing yards per game (87.2).

ABOUT MISSISSIPPI STATE (4-2, 1-2): Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald passed for two touchdowns and rushed for two scores against BYU, helping the Bulldogs surpass 500 yards of total offense for the third time in six games. Running back Aeris Williams recorded his fifth career 100-yard rushing game with 114 last week and ranks sixth in the SEC in rushing yards (523). The Bulldogs defense leads the nation in first downs allowed (72), ranks fourth in passing defense (155 yards per game) and is eighth in total defense (284.8 yards per contest).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Bulldogs as 11-point favorites versus the Wildcats, while the game’s total is sitting at 54½ according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

Kentucky has struggled against a variety of non-Power 5 teams this season, but the bottom line is the Wildcats are 5-1 and squarely in the SEC East race heading into Saturday’s road game against Mississippi State. The Wildcats aim to reach 6-1 for the second time in 40 years, and head coach Mark Stoops is not apologizing for his team surviving against the likes of Missouri, Eastern Michigan and Eastern Kentucky, three teams with a combined record of 4-14.

“Finding ways to win, and putting yourself in a position to win football games is bottom line, and I think this team has done that very well,” Stoops told reporters Monday. Mississippi State’s once-promising season took a sharp turn south after being outscored 80-13 in losses to Alabama and Georgia, but the Bulldogs rebounded in beating BYU last week. Mississippi State comes into this matchup averaging 261.7 rushing yards per game (third in the SEC), a strength that will be challenged by a Kentucky defense allowing just 97.2 yards on the ground (also third in the league). “They attack you from a lot of different directions,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen told reporters Monday. “They pose some unique challenges.”

Mississippi State was a 35-10 winner in their most recent outing at home against Cougars. They covered the -23.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (45) made winners of UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Kentucky was a 40-34 winner at home against Tigers. They failed to cover the -8.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (74) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
