Mississippi State Bulldogs Game Notes
Will Rogers completed 31-of-48 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns Saturday against Arkansas. Rogers has three-straight 300-yard outings with 12 touchdowns and zero picks over that span. Rogers leads the country in passing yards and is second behind CJ Stroud in passing touchdowns. A tough Kentucky defense lurks next weekend, but Rogers will be difficult to stop regardless.
Kentucky Wildcats Game Notes
Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said Friday that Will Levis (toe) was "good to go" for Saturday's game against Mississippi State, Chris Low of ESPN.com reports. Levis misses last Saturday's game versus South Carolina while dealing with turf toe. The senior quarterback also dislocated his middle finger on his non-throwing hand two weeks ago against Ole Miss. However, Levis is now deemed fully healthy and will look to build on his impressive season, in which he has already completed 97-of-141 passes for 1,405 yards, 12 touchdowns and four interceptions through the air to go along with two touchdowns on the ground.
