STARKVILLE, Miss. - On the backs of Jameon Lewis, Dak Prescott and a late defensive stand, Mississippi State (4-3, 1-2 SEC) beat Kentucky (1-6, 0-4) 28-22 in Starkville on a chilly Thursday night at Davis Wade Stadium.

For the second time this season, Lewis scored three different ways, reaching the end zone by receiving, rushing and passing for a touchdown. The junior receiver had 53 yards on seven catches, 22 yards on a pair of rushes and 17 yards on his one pass, a touchdown to Prescott, the sophomore quarterback.

Senior linebacker Deontae Skinner paced the Bulldogs with 11 tackles defensively, including six solo stops. He was followed by sophomore linebacker Benardrick McKinney, who notched 10 of his own.

MSU travels to South Carolina next Saturday, Nov. 2, kicking off against the Gamecocks at 12:21 p.m. ET (11:21 a.m. CT) on SEC TV.
