The Mississippi State Bulldogs were back on the road this past weekend and faced off against SEC East foe, the Kentucky Wildcats. The Mississippi State football team was dominated by the Wildcats in every aspect of the game on Saturday night in Lexington. The Bulldogs were defeated by the Wildcats 27-17.
From start to finish, the Mississippi State football team did not have its best day on offense, defense, or special teams. Mike Leach mentioned in his post-game press conference that this week of practice didn’t look as good as the week before the Bulldogs played Texas A&M. That sounds like a coaching issue, and Mike Leach also mentioned that they were outcoached in Saturday’s game.
We could talk about how Will Rogers didn’t have his best day, but it is not Will Rogers’s fault that the Bulldogs allowed 193 rushing yards to the Wildcats. This is a team that has to prepare for the biggest game of the season every week. Mississippi State cannot get comfortable after winning two SEC West home games.
In this week’s episode of ‘Cowbell Off Campus,’ Landon Young and Addison Thigpen discuss what went right and what went wrong in last week’s game vs. the Kentucky Wildcats. They finish the podcast by picking the line for all of the SEC games in week eight of college football.
