This line is about as could be expected, as the Bulldogs are the clear favorite in this matchup. Kentucky, like MSU, comes into Thursday night's contest off of a bye, but before that the Wildcats had been in the midst of a brutal portion of their schedule. After a second game win over Miami of Ohio, the Wildcats have lost four straight games to the likes of Louisville (#7), Florida (#20), South Carolina (#13), and Alabama (#1). UK's schedule does ease up a bit, in relative terms, but they do still have MSU, Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt on the schedule to finish out the season.
The Bulldogs and Wildcats will square off at 6:30 Thursday night, October 24, on ESPN.
