... in 2005, Kentucky running backs Arliss Beach and Rafael Little had a combined 239 yards from scrimmage in the Wildcats 13-7 victory over the visiting Mississippi State Bulldogs. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Cats, but was only the first win of the season against a Division I opponent. Little finished with 114 yards on 24 carries, while Beach totaled 84 yards on 14 carries. The Big Blue defense allowed only 99 yards of total offense in the first half, never allowing the Bulldogs to get past the Kentucky 30-yard line. A quarterback change ignited the offense for Mississippi State, but the Cats held on late for the win. Sophomore quarterback Andre Woodson, who was battling the flu, finished the game completing only 13 of 27 passes for 141 yards and no touchdowns. The lone Kentucky touchdown came in the first half on a Rafael Little 8-yard scamper.
