Prescott, Bulldogs Begin Five-Game SEC Stretch Hosting Kentucky

He’s seen four, and played in three of Mississippi State’s six consecutive wins in the series. So Dak Prescott can take this week’s visit by Kentucky as routine, right? Wrong.

They're our locked opponent across the Division,” the Bulldog quarterback said. “They're a team trying to do what we've done here. And they're not far off."

Prescott is correct. Though Mississippi State has owned the inter-Division rivalry ever since Dan Mullen took over, none of the six-straight victories have come easily. The average winning margin of 9.8 points is deceptive, too. Such as in 2014, when then-#1 State needed an on-sides kickoff return to keep control.

So Prescott and the Bulldogs are alert to both the challenge Kentucky will bring to Scott Field (6:39, SECN), and the opportunity Mississippi State has.

“We’re kind of in the second half of the season,” Prescott said. “So we’ve got to get a good win in the SEC and get rolling.”
