Mississippi State: 28
It wasn't the prettiest game in the world but you take what you can get when your team is struggling. This is why you won't hear any complaining from Mississippi State, a team that improves to 4-3 on the season after a tight victory over an SEC rival.
Quarterback Dak Prescott played extremely well and led a Bulldogs offense down field for nearly 450 yards of offense, while the defense came up with timely stops. Kentucky played well defensively and the offense did show flashes throughout the game, but neither quarterback (Maxwell Smith or Jalen Whitlow) could get going.
Mississippi State was simply the better team and now has a winning record, while Kentucky drops to 1-6 on the year.
Kentucky will play Alabama State next week and Mississippi State will travel to South Carolina.
