Featured Game | Kentucky Wildcats vs. Georgia Bulldogs

Why Georgia can cover

Georgia has dominated the series against Kentucky recently. The Bulldogs have won the last 12 meetings against the Wildcats, which is the longest winning streak in the series. Georgia also has won the last seven matchups in Lexington. Kentucky’s last win in the series came in 2009, a 34-27 win in Athens.

In addition, the Bulldogs have an anchor on the defensive line in Jalen Carter. A 6-foot-3, 300-pound junior from Apopka, Fla., Carter is coming off one perhaps his best game of the season, making a career-high seven tackles, including one sack and 1.5 tackles for loss, at Mississippi State last weekend. For his efforts this season he has been named a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy, which is given to the nation’s top interior lineman.

Why Kentucky can cover

Kentucky has one of the top running backs in the conference in Chris Rodriguez Jr. A fifth-year senior from McDonough, Ga., Rodriguez averages 122.2 rushing yards per game, which would lead the SEC if he had played in enough games to qualify. For his career he has 3,473 rushing yards, which is the third-most in program history.

In addition, the Wildcats have the pass defense to slow the Georgia passing game. Kentucky ranks second in the conference and 15th in the country in passing yards per game allowed (182.0). The Wildcats are also third in the SEC in passing efficiency defense (118.15).
