Blog – Pregame: Kentucky at Mississippi State

Records: MSU (3-3, 0-2), UK (1-5, 0-3)

Kickoff: 6:30 p.m.


Stadium: Davis Wade Stadium

QB matchup: MSU senior Tyler Russell (29-141 passing for 381 yards, 2 TDs and 1 interception) and sophomore Dak Prescott (63-116 passing for 890 yards, 3 TDs and 3 interceptions, 457 rushing yards on 64 carries, 8 TDs) vs. UK sophomore Maxwell Smith (51-92 passing for 710 yards, 5 TDs, 1 interceptions) and sophomore Jalen Whitlow (50-76 passing for 499 yards, 3 TDs, 1 interception, 238 rushing yards on 49 carries, 3 TDs)

Officials: Referee – Hubert Owens, Umpire – Russ Pulley, Linesman – Chad Green, Line Judge – Paul Petrisko, Field Judge – Greg Thomas, Side Judge – Chad Hill, Back Judge – John Wright, Alternate – Marc Curles

One big thing to watch: The atmosphere at Davis Wade Stadium will not be a good one. Fall Break started today and many students have left. Some just won’t attend the game. The Bulldogs will have to overcome the poor atmosphere.

Gameday surprise: Sophomore defensive lineman Quay Evans is not dressed. Taveze Calhoun will start for Cedric Jiles at cornerback. Freshman WR Shelby Christy is dressed out.

Pregame song(s): Dumas Walker by the Kentucky Headhunters – This one is for obvious reasons. MSU is playing Kentucky (just in case you didn’t catch it). I love this song and I hope you enjoy it.
