LEXINGTON, Ky. — After taking care of Mississippi state business last weekend, the Georgia Bulldogs face another road Test this week, this time against a very well-known SEC East foe.
No. 1 Georgia (10-0, 7-0 SEC) travels to Lexington on Saturday to take on Kentucky (6-4, 3-4 SEC) at 3:30 p.m. in a game televised on CBS becomes. The Bulldogs are looking for similar success to their past against the Wildcats: Georgia has a 61-12-2 record in the series and is on a 12-game win streak against Kentucky.
Georgia won the last meeting in Athens last season with 30:13.
Georgia has been taking care of business week after week throughout the 2022 season.
The Bulldogs have beaten Oregon, Samford, South Carolina, Kent State, Missouri, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Florida, Tennessee and Mississippi State this season, with the most recent win being the 45-19 win over the maroon Bulldogs.
Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett threw for 289 yards and 3 touchdowns and also rushed for another, and wide receiver Ladd McConkey put up 71 receiving yards and had a 70-yard rushing touchdown against Mississippi State. The Road Bulldogs suffered a 63-yard punt return touchdown from Zavion Thomas just before halftime and eventually beat the Maroon Bulldogs 28-7 in the second half.
Georgia is 10-0 on the season — the first time in program history the Bulldogs have started 10-0 in consecutive years — and tops the college football playoff rankings, the AP poll and the coach survey.
Kentucky, meanwhile, opened the season with four straight victories over Miami (OH), Florida, Youngstown State and Northern Illinois before suffering a tough 22-19 loss to Ole Miss in Week 5. The Wildcats lost to South Carolina the next week, Beat Mississippi State the following week and had a bye after that before losing to Tennessee.
The Wildcats beat Missouri two weeks ago before losing 24-21 to Vanderbilt last Saturday to earn the Commodores’ first SEC win since 2019.
