Can the Kentucky Wildcats keep up their push for a postseason berth?
We’ll soon find out when the Mississippi State Bulldogs come to Commonwealth Stadium. The two SEC cross-division rivals face off Saturday night under the bright lights with postseason hopes on the line for both clubs.
At 2-4, Mississippi state must win this game just to keep their bowl hopes alive. UK is in better shape at 3-3 and looking to climb above the .500 mark for the first time this season. A win here would not only do that, but put them two games away from the elusive bowl eligibility that’s eluded Mark Stoops in his first three years in Lexington.
Here is everything you’ll need to watch and follow Kentucky host Mississippi State.
