The No. 16 Mississippi State Bulldogs and No. 22 Kentucky Wildcats meet up in Week 7 at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET, and the game will air on SEC Network. And for two teams that have been the traditional also-rans in their respective league divisions, to have them both in the Top 25 makes this a big one for both sides.
The Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 SEC) might be out of the SEC title race already, but Mike Leach could be looking at his best season in the league to date. Mississippi State is forcing two turnovers a game however, and starting quarterback Will Rogers has 2110 with 22 touchdowns and just three interceptions so far this season.
Kentucky (4-2, 1-2 SEC) might once again be without starting quarterback WIll Levis, who missed the Cats stunning 24-14 loss to South Carolina last week with multiple injuries. UK has yet to score 30 points in a conference game, but they should get many more opportunities with the ball having the Bulldogs Air Raid offense on the other side.
MSU is a 4-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -180 on the moneyline. That makes UK a +155 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 49.
