Our next opponent? They're number 5. Here's what he had to say:

"It’s a must-win to keep postseason aspirations alive, but history isn’t on Kentucky’s side. The Wildcats are winless against the Bulldogs in coach Mark Stoops’ tenure and Mississippi State has won seven in a row in the series.

That said, Mississippi State is having a down year and Kentucky is presented another winnable home game. Kentucky is off Saturday with an extra week to prepare for Mississippi State, who had to head west for a Friday night matchup against BYU."

He's not wrong. Next week is a must-win and the chances of a UK victory got a little bright over last night after the Bulldog's didn't pull off the win at BYU. The rest of the list goes as this: 6. Austin Peay 5. Mississippi State 4. at Missouri 3. Georgia 2. at Tennessee
  1. at Louisville
The only problem I see with this is that following Georgia's horrible homecoming showing against Vandy today, I might move them above Missouri. We're taking on Georgia at home with bowl eligibility on the line, if we can beat Vandy at home, we can beat them at home. For the rest of what Joe has to say, click here.
