CBS sideline reporter Allie LaForce had quite the scoop coming out of halftime of Saturday's Mississippi State-Kentucky game.

LaForce quoted Kentucky defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh trying to motivate his charges, or seriously misjudging the talent across from him (we're betting the former).

"Kentucky's defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh said that Mississippi State's offensive line, in all of his years of playing, is the sorriest that he's ever seen," LaForce reported. "He was riding his defensive line the entire first half to do a better job and that's continuing into the second half."

"The defensive line heard the message, they rallied around each other and they said, 'Guys, we got this.'"

The Bulldogs held a 17-10 lead at halftime, and eventually pulled away for a 45-31 win in Lexington.

Mississippi State rushed 51 times for 326 yards, as running back Josh Robinson (23 carries for 198 yards and two touchdowns) and quarterback Dak Prescott (18 rushes for 88 yards and two touchdowns) battered the Wildcats' front.

Kentucky sacked Prescott three times, but he still managed to complete 18-of-33 passes for 216 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Here's betting Mississippi State offensive line coach John Hevesy hopes Alabama and Ole Miss give their players the same scouting report.
