STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State doesn't have a very easy path to six victories and a fourth straight season of bowl eligibility.
Beating Kentucky would be a good first step.
The Bulldogs (3-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) host Kentucky (1-5, 0-3) on Thursday night in a match up of two teams vying for their first conference victory of the season. Mississippi State has won four straight against the Wildcats, including last season's 27-14 victory in Lexington, Ky.
Mississippi State is coming off an unimpressive 21-20 victory over Bowling Green on Oct. 12. The Bulldogs have some promising young players -- like sophomore quarterback Dak Prescott and sophomore linebacker Benardrick McKinney -- but have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball.
