Twitter reactions to Kentucky’s win over Mississippi State

Kentucky holds Mississippi State and Mike Leach to just two points on the night and forces six interceptions.

The Kentucky Wildcats get their first win of the season against the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and boy, was it an ugly one. It even featured the rare 21-2 final score. I have to admit, I did not foresee a Kentucky team holding a Mike Leach offense to 2 points and six interceptions.

The Kentucky defense finally arrived after a poor first two weeks, forcing six interceptions, more than making up for the lack of forced turnovers through the first two games. Joshua Paschal, Kelvin Joseph, Jordan Wright, Jamin Davis, Jamar Watson and D’Eryck Jackson each shared the wealth on the defensive side of the ball.

The offense however, was not up to par as we have seen through the first two games. After putting up 41 points last week, Kentucky struggled to move the ball at all, barely surpassing 150 total yards on the night.

Chris Rodriguez Jr., the highest graded running back in the country last week, also saw a limited amount of touches for some reason.

However, a win is a win, no matter how ugly.

Oh and Joey Gatewood got some clock. That was neat to see.

Kentucky gets Tennessee next week in Knoxville.
