News and Notes from around Bulldog country today include lots of recap on Saturday's win over Kentucky, preparing for this weekend's big home game with Tennessee, and more.
This weekend was a football dream that I don't think any of us want to wake up from yet. Week 6 was everything we hoped it would be, and then some. I did my best to try and recap it all here yesterday, but failed I'm sure to capture the greatness that abounded rampant in the world of college football two days ago. I'm just going to sum it up with two tweets, and then I'll move on to MSU only News and Notes:

- From the other side of things, Tim Sullivan with the Courier-Journal touches on freshman QB Patrick Towles, and the all-to-brief glance Saturday at Kentucky's brighter future.
- Mullen is obviously aware of what was mentioned last Saturday among fans during the end of the game. In Sunday's teleconference, he told the media "We get a lead on people, get up and they take their foot off the gas a bit." Look for Them to work on that this week with Tennessee coming to town.
