Godby's Keys to the Game - Mississippi State
1. Don't get lost in the Moment
We have all seen this game before. All the hype in the world for one game. This game is a front row seat for all of BBN to witness Stoops and company break down the latest wall. A win against Miss State is tying UGA for first place in the SEC East and breaking the top 25 for the first time in 11 years. This team needs to stay focus and not get lost in the large crowd and hype going into this game. TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS
2. Out Physical Them
There is something different in the water in Starkville, MS. Year after year, their players are always abnormally massive and thick for each position group. The Bulldogs are a PHYSICAL ball club. Fans have witnessed what happens if they don’t match the physicality. UK must be ready to for the most physical game they will have to play all year.
3. Run the ball
In order to match the physicality of a team like Miss St, you have to run them over. Miss State is just the latest team this year to decide to insult Benny Snell and company. Benny Snell needs to bring the “truck stick” to this game. Terry Wilson needs to compliment Snell with his speed. This offense has to run this defense ragged
4. Overwhelm Nick Fitzgerald
Kash Daniel, Josh Allen and Jordan Jones have to pin their ears back and wear Fitzgerald down. This LB core needs to match the ruthlessness they showed against Florida and Murray St.
