It’s been a great week for the Kentucky Wildcats, as they have mounted wins against Georgia on the road and then at No. 16 Auburn as well.

Tonight, they take on another top 25 opponent in the Mississippi State Bulldogs (22), except this time, the Cats have the luxury of being the home team.

The Cats have looked very impressive over their last couple of games, especially when they picked up a win in a hostile road environment at Auburn. The Tigers made a roaring comeback only to come up short as Kentucky managed to scrape by with a two-point victory.

Kentucky doesn’t have any time to celebrate, though, as they welcome a very talented Mississippi State team to Rupp Arena. The Bulldogs are 14-3 and have picked up back-to-back wins against Florida and Vanderbilt, respectively.

It’s going to be a tough battle, but Kentucky should have the edge, as we’re seeing things gel for this team on the offensive end.

Tonight’s game can be seen on ESPN. You can watch it online using Watch ESPN, the Watch ESPN app and fuboTV. You can listen to an online radio stream via UK Athletics.
