The Kentucky Wildcats play host to the Mississippi State Bulldogs (14). Saturday night will be one of the most exciting matchups in the young college football season. Both teams boast 3-0 records as this intense SEC rivalry renews.
Kentucky’s Benny Snell Jr. is one of the most exciting and talented running backs in college football. He will more than likely go down as Kentucky’s all-time leading rusher. His 375 yards rushing and three touchdowns, plus his 43-yard touchdown pass against Murray State have helped the Wildcats to a hot start to begin their 2018 campaign.
Star receiver Lynn Bowden has compiled 185 yards and one touchdown on 17 receptions. Not huge numbers, but enough to help compliment Snell’s playmaking ability. Look for Terry Wilson Jr. to find both of these playmakers early and often. Wilson himself has had a steady start to his junior season after transferring over from Oregon.
To the other side of the ball, we have the No. 14 Mississippi State Bulldogs. They also have some firepower under their belts. Trying to build upon their 3-0 season, they will have to play at a high level if they want to avoid the upset against a very talented Kentucky team on the road.
Bulldogs quarterback Nick Fitzgerald is coming off a six-touchdown effort last week, including four rushing scores as he joined Dak Prescott and Tim Tebow as the only SEC quarterbacks with at least 35 passing and 40 rushing touchdowns in their career.
The man of the hour running back Kylin Hill who has been in a heated war of words with fellow running back Snell leading up to Saturday night’s showdown between a pair of undefeated teams. Hill has backed up his big talk thus far boasting 293 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns while adding 66 yards and two receiving scores.
