Mississippi State is off to a strong start to the season but things are about to get difficult. This is unexpectedly a battle between two undefeated teams. On the road in the SEC nothing is easy.
Kentucky got the historic streak busting win against Florida a couple of weeks ago so they can be given somewhat of a pass for not absolutely obliterating Murray State. What would that have really proved anyway?
Mississippi State Bulldogs
So far so good in the transition from Dan Mullen to Joe Moorhead. The Bulldogs looks solid in all facets of the game and passed their toughest test to date by handling Kansas State pretty easily in Manhattan.
It helps to have an experienced quarterback in Nick Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is one of the best run/pass threats in the nation and looks to be on pace to outdo his amazing 2016-17 season. Last year was cut short by injuries so he is making up for lost time.
Fitzgerald is probably the most recognizable Bulldog, the quarterbacks always are but this is one of the best defensive teams in the country up front. They are really going to test Kentucky’s ability to run the ball.
The Wildcats turned some head with that win over Florida. It was a good win for the program but unfortunately for Gators fans said as much about the state of that program as anything else.
Benny Snell Jr. sets the tone for this team by punishing defenders when he runs the ball. Quarterback Terry Wilson is also a running threat but the sophomore looks like a player with limited experience. He will keep getting better.
For Kentucky to get another big win they are going to need their defense to come up big. Mississippi State is definitely the best offensive team they have faced so far and they are going to need to get some big stops.

This will be a fun test for both teams. Winning at night on the road within your own conference is how the better teams really separate themselves from each other.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Mississippi State -10
Definitely watch out for the backdoor in this one. I think Mississippi State will have the game pretty much in hand thanks to their strong defense in the trenches but things could get wacky is Kentucky is pumped up at home.
Kentucky is going to have a lot of pride in this one but in the end I think Wilson will make a mistake or two that they just can’t recover from. Fitzgerald is more than ready for the moment.
