Mississippi State will be coming off of a loss when Kentucky comes to town next weekend.

This afternoon, the MSU Bulldogs fell to Kansas State by a final score of 31-24 at Davis Wade Stadium.

In the loss, Mississippi State actually managed more total yards (352-269), passing yards (151-123), rushing yards (201-146), first downs (21-17), and won the time of possession (33:05-26:55).

So where did the Bulldogs go wrong?

Despite finding success offensively as a whole, MSU threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball once. In fact, Bulldogs starting quarterback Tommy Stevens was benched in the third quarter following his second thrown interception.

From there, Stevens was replaced by quarterback Garrett Shrader with 11:21 remaining in the third and closed out the game. Shrader managed just 51 yards on 4-12 passing, though he did add 82 yards and a touchdown on ten rushing attempts.

Stevens threw for 100 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions on 7-15 passing.

On a positive note for MSU, star running back Kylin Hill did manage 111 yards on 24 carries.

Kentucky will take on Mississippi State at 4:00 p.m. ET in Starkville next Saturday.

    Shrader had a several passes dropped that should’ve been caught, one for a big first down after the defense let Knowles run a kick off back 100 yds.

      Part of throwing a ball is putting touch on it. Dont have to throw bullets always.

      Part of catching is holding on to the ball, he looked pretty good for a back up I thought.

    Don’t know what series I watched while eating lunch, but the MState QB who was playing looked helpless. It was painful to watch.
