After going 3-0 in quite possibly the greatest three-game stretch in school history, the #1 Mississippi State Bulldog football team took last weekend off to relax and rest before the second half of the season. Now the Bulldogs face a different challenge: avoiding the letdown, and surviving every team's best shot. The Bulldogs will start that task today with a game against the Kentucky Wildcats who are young but still greatly improved from Kentucky teams off the past. Can the Bulldogs avoid the letdown and overlook of Kentucky and move to 7-0?
