The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs visit a Kentucky Wildcats team that became the first SEC team to lose to Vanderbilt since 2019. Kentucky (6-4) started the year off strong, with quarterback Will Levis in first-round draft pick talks, but a beatdown from Tennessee seems to have taken the wind out of their sails. Before losing to Vanderbilt, they pulled out a close win against Missouri.
Georgia (10-0) has seen a few close calls themselves, though they were able to handily defeat the Vols. The country’s top team comes into this matchup having beaten Mississippi State last week. They have already clinched their SEC Championship slot.

This Kentucky team is not the same one we saw beat Florida. A loss to Vanderbilt is a deeply embarrassing thing for a formerly-ranked team to go through in this day and age, and they have no shot against this stifling Bulldogs defense. Stetson Bennett has a lot of momentum with this Georgia offense after putting up 45 points last week. Georgia to cover.
