Mississippi State appears to be back on track.
After losing back-to-back games against Georgia and Auburn, the Bulldogs notched their second straight win on Saturday, following up a win over BYU with a victory over Kentucky.
The Wildcats entered the matchup 5-1, but the Bulldogs handled them easily in a 45-7 victory.
However, Missisippi State held a slim 17-7 lead at halftime. In a great postgame locker room speech posted by Mississippi State’s Twitter account, coach Dan Mullen shares what he told his team at the half that led to the big final two quarters.
“I challenged you at halftime to turn it up to another level,” Mullen said in the video. “I challenged you to come out, turn it up. You did that.”
