The point spread favored Miss. State last week, but luck did not. They took a 31-24 hit to the loss column at the hands of Kansas State. The losing side was boosted by QB Garrett Shrader, who rushed for 82 yards and one touchdown on ten carries. Shrader didn’t help his team much against So. Miss two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
Meanwhile, if Kentucky was riding high off their 38-17 takedown of E. Michigan, that ride came to an abrupt end. The Wildcats came up short against Florida, falling 29-21. Kentucky was given a dose of their own medicine in this game as Florida apparently hadn’t forgotten their defeat the last time these teams played, back in Sept. of last year.
Miss. State found themselves the reluctant recipients of a vexing 28-7 punch to the gut against Kentucky when the two teams met last season. Maybe the Bulldogs will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
