Kentucky continues to overwhelm opponents as it chases college basketball's first undefeated season in 39 years.

The top-ranked Wildcats head to Mississippi State on Wednesday night to face a Bulldogs team that might not stand much of a chance if it can't reduce its turnovers.

Kentucky (27-0, 14-0 SEC) has matched the 1995-96 team's school-record 27-game winning streak, also tying the longest run by a -coached team. He won 27 in a row in 2008-09 at Memphis.

A weak season for the conference, which includes five teams with .500 or worse records overall, has left the Wildcats mostly unchallenged. Their last three wins have been by a combined 87 points with an average plus-15.3 rebounding margin. Kentucky's plus-22.1 scoring differential is the highest since Duke's 24.7 mark in 1998-99.
