Good morning Kentucky fans! The Wildcats had a tough time against Mississippi State Saturday night in Starkville and return to Lexington after a 42-16 loss.
The Wildcats fell to 4-3 overall and 2-3 in the SEC.
Here are three things to know:
- One bright spot in a game the Wildcats otherwise are ready to forget was a new career milestone for sophomore running back Stanley “Boom” Williams. Williams now has more than 1,000 career rushing yards to his name and is the 35th Kentucky player in history to accomplish that feat.
- The Wildcats had to deal with their fair share of injuries Saturday night. Sophomore cornerback Kendall Randolph exited in the first half, and wide receiver Garrett Johnson and left tackle Jordan Swindle both needed examining after the third quarter.
- In light of a tough day for the football team, the basketball team got some good news. Skal Labissiere has been declared eligible by the NCAA after his eligibility was investigated and under question.
