What is Mississippi State football in 2020, anyway?
The optimism from the upset win at LSU two weeks ago faded away with last Saturday's upset loss to Arkansas. The Bulldogs will try to regain some momentum on Saturday night at Kentucky.
The biggest concern throughout the first two weeks has been turnovers. MSU has produced four turnovers in each of the first two games, which is not the formula for victory. Kentucky, however, has looked vulnerable against Auburn and Ole Miss's passing attacks so far this season.
Here's how you can follow Saturday's game.
Get ready for an SEC battle as the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Kentucky Wildcats will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Kroger Field. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, the Bulldogs nows face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
MSU came up short against the Arkansas Razorbacks last week, falling 21-14. If the result catches you off guard, it should: MSU was the far and away favorite. QB K.J. Costello wasn't much of a difference maker for MSU and threw three interceptions with only 5.31 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, UK missed a PAT kick in overtime against the Ole Miss Rebels last week, and it came back to haunt them. UK lost to Ole Miss in overtime 42-41. The defeat was just more heartbreak for the Wildcats, who fell 37-34 when the teams previously met in November of 2017. Despite the loss, they got a solid performance out of QB Terry Wilson, who accumulated 151 passing yards in addition to rushing for three TDs and 129 yards.
After unsatisfying finishes in their previous games, both teams are out for the full three points in this fixture. The teams are out to make things right after dropping matches they were expected to win, so stay tuned to see which squad bounces back.
