LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Mississippi State quarterbacks Tyler Russell and Chris Relf combined for 264 yards and each passed for a touchdown, and Relf ran for two touchdowns in the Bulldogs' 28-16 win over Kentucky on Saturday night.
Russell earned his second start of the season, and the two alternated drives in the first quarter. As the game went on, Russell took most of the snaps and Relf was brought in for running situations.
The Bulldogs (4-4, 1-4 Southeastern Conference) committed three turnovers, two of which were fumbles that Kentucky recovered inside the Mississippi State 25-yard line. But the Wildcats were held to field goals on both drives.
Running back Vick Ballard had 87 yards for the Bulldogs.
