Challenges for Mississippi State

State and Kentucky are both coming off very close, demoralizing losses. The team that puts the setback behind them in the quickest manner will likely have the edge in this game. The losers of this game are going to find themselves in an early hole in the SEC. The Bulldog’s challenge is get pressure on Kentucky QB Sawyer Smith. If State can get him to perform like he did against Florida (3 INTs) they’ll have a great shot at winning a big home game.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 3:00 PM CT (4:00 PM ET). Watch on the SEC Network.
