STARKVILLE, Miss. -- The Kentucky Wildcats (5-3, 1-3) face the Mississippi State Bulldogs (3-5, 1-3)…
Bowl Eligible: Cats nip Bulldogs 14-13
Kentucky stopped Mississippi State after a brief drive led the Bulldogs to midfield, and had an 82-yard drive culminating in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Cobb to Maurice Grinter to give the Wildcats a 14-7 lead.
A 4th quarter touchdown by the Bulldogs closed the gap to 14-13, but the ensuing extra point attempt was blocked by Kentucky's Matt Roark, preserving a 1-point margin for the Wildcats. The 1-point margin held up, although the Bulldogs threatened again after a Wildcat fumble, but a 29-yard field goal attempt to give them the lead clanged off the left uprights.
The Wildcats move to 6-3 (2-3) on the season, and will face Georgia in Commonwealth Stadium next week. Game time and television broadcast will depend on today's game between Georgia and Florida. If Georgia defeats Florida, the Georgia-UK game will be televised at 8 p.m. on ESPN or ESPN2. If Georgia loses to Florida, the Georgia-UK game will be a regional telecast at 12:30 p.m. by Raycom Sports.
