The Kentucky Wildcats got their tails handed to them in Starkville.
Despite having the game tied at 7-7 late in the second quarter, UK would surrender a 38-0 run to Mississippi State in route to a 45-7 loss to the Bulldogs. This is the same team that was outscored by an 80-13 margin to Georgia and Auburn, two great teams, but being that UK was 5-1, there was no reason for this game to be as big of a debacle as it turned into.
After the game, emotions boiled over in the postgame locker room, which bled into Mark Stoops’ postgame press conference. At one point, you can here UK assistant Vince Marrow light into the team using NSFW language.

You can hear the yelling being around the 5:30 mark, and you can hear Marrow really light into the team around the 7:30 mark.
Aside from the outburst, Stoops was able to finish his postgame presser, in which he expressed disappointment with this team for their poor showing.
“They flat out beat us. They outcoached us,” said Stoops during the presser. “You accept it and there’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. They whooped us. That’s the way it is. You’ve got to accept it. We all have to look ourselves in the mirror and look at every aspect of our situation and look where we get better, starting with me.”
On to Tennessee.
