Where: Kroger Field, Lexington, KY
When: Saturday, October 31, 2020, 12:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: SEC Network
Record: 3-1 Overall / 3-1 Conference
The Bulldogs saw their three-game win streak end in their most recent outing which was a 41-24 loss in Tuscaloosa to the Alabama Crimson Tide. The defense that the Bulldogs had relied upon so much prior to that game didn’t do much against the deep and talented Crimson Tide offense. Well, Georgia isn’t going to deal with that kind of juggernaut attack this coming Saturday against a Kentucky squad that is just seventh in the SEC in scoring offense with 28.0 points per game and only 11th in the league in total offense with 348.5 total yards per contest. Georgia’s defense remains solid even after the loss to Alabama, as the Bulldogs are allowing just 19.5 points and only 4.5 yards per play. Despite the beatdown they were handed by Alabama, the Bulldogs managed to record three sacks to increase their season total to 13 quarterback takedowns – the most in the SEC.
Georgia is 5-2 against the spread in its last seven road games.
Record: 2-3 Overall / 2-3 Conference
The Wildcats have to learn how to make stops. Otherwise, they will keep on losing the possession battle like they did in last week’s embarrassing 20-10 road loss to the Missouri Tigers. Missouri controlled the ball for over 43 minutes, while Kentucky only had it for a little under 17 minutes. That resulted in a dearth of scoring opportunities for the Wildcats, who only had a total of 145 total yards to Mizzou’s 421. Missouri had 26 first downs to Kentucky’s 10 and went 10-for-20 on third downs. Can the Wildcats change that trend in just a week? Perhaps they could give running back Chris Rodriguez more touches, after he only got nine carries for 48 rushing yards against the Tigers. Rodriguez had 73 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Missouri’s 34-7 road win over the Tennessee Volunteers a couple of weeks ago. Kentucky is second in the SEC with 184.4 rushing yards per game.
Kentucky is also 8-2 against the spread in its last 10 home games.
Georgia wins, 37-20.
