The Bulldogs return to action this week at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington to take on the Wildcats in a homecoming affair.  Mississippi State has never lost to Kentucky under Dan Mullen, but there have been some tight games.  I'll kick off the projections:

Bold Prediction: Prescott goes for 250 yards in the air and 150 on the ground and picks up five touchdowns as he continues his Heisman campaign.  With defenses being forced to account for Jameon Lewis again, De'Runnya Wilson gets his first 100-yard receiving game.

Best Case Scenario: Mississippi State weathers some sluggishness and a Kentucky storm to open the game, and the Bulldog offense never stops clicking.  Prescott accounts for five touchdowns and Josh Robinson snags one as well, and the Bulldogs pick up a 49-10 win.  The only Kentucky touchdown is scored by Steve Borden, and they play Sting's WCW SlamJam entrance.

Worst Case Scenario: The Bulldogs pick up a tough 29-22 win over Kentucky, but it comes at a price as they lose a couple of players during the game to an injury.
