Game notes

Allen on trackfor first start

Sophomore running back Moncell Allen will get his turn in Kentucky's running back rotation Saturday. The 5-foot-7, 225-pounder is likely to make his first career start.

Allen's physical, move-the-chains running style could ignite a Wildcats attack that has struggled to pick up first downs.

"We're excited to see what Moncell can do," UK offensive coordinator Joker Phillips said. "Mississippi State is a physical defense, and this will be a physical game, so it seems like a perfect fit for him."

Game availableonly on pay-per-view

Saturday's game will be televised live on a pay-per-view basis only.

The game will be televised live in Kentucky by participating cable systems and satellite providers. The suggested price is $29.95 on game day. Final pricing decisions are made by the cable/satellite providers. Kentuckians who want to order the game should contact their local cable or satellite provider.

The game is available nationally as part of ESPN's GamePlan package, but that broadcast will be blacked out in Kentucky and Mississippi.

Announcers will be Steve Ellis on play-by-play, with Tim Couch and Matt Wyatt providing analysis.
