We have reached week eight of the college football season, and most teams are now playing the conference portion of their schedule.
One of this games this weekend is an SEC showdown at Davis Wade Stadium.
The Kentucky Wildcats make the trip to the heart of Mississippi to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The Bulldogs have won seven of the last eight games played between the two teams.
The only win for the Wildcats was last year though coming out ahead 40-38.
The Kentucky Wildcats have really had a weird season so far this year, and they come into this game with a 5-1 record, but it hasn’t been easy by any means.
In their last two games the Wildcats have two wins. but they have really struggled in the two games and were lucky to escape in both instances.
Eastern Michigan and Missouri have a combined three wins so far this season, and the Wildcats were only able to beat those teams by a combined ten points.
If they want any chance in this game, they are going to have to step up their game. If they play the way they did the last two games this is going to be a blowout.
The Wildcats are led by Senior quarterback Stephen Johnson. He comes into this game having thrown for 1238 yards and nine touchdowns.
To win this game he is going to need to play well, because this is going to be a high scoring affair. The defense is also going to need to find a way to step up.
They are coming into this game just giving up 34 points to the Missouri Tigers. If the defense doesn’t step up, they will give up that many points to the Bulldogs.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
On the other side of this match up is the Mississippi State Bulldogs who have also had a very up and down season so far this year.
They got off to a flying fast start winning their first three games of the season. But then they ran into the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers and they were destroyed by both teams.
In their last game though they got their season turned around beating a struggling BYU team by the final score of 35-10.
To win this game the offense needs to play well. They are led by Junior quarterback by Nick Fitzgerald who played well at the beginning of the season but has struggled as of late.
He has thrown for 1024 yards and ten touchdowns. Over his last three games though he has thrown six interceptions which is a very concerning trend.
