Featured Game | Kentucky Wildcats vs. Georgia Bulldogs

Why Georgia can cover

Georgia has a proven quarterback winner in Stetson Bennett. Bennett, a former walk-on whose history is well documented, is 24-3 as a starter at Georgia and has completed 64.4% of his passing career. This season, despite playing on a run-based offense, Bennett is second in the conference in passing yards per game (289.5).

Additionally, the Bulldogs have an elite tight end duo in Brock Bowers and junior Darnell Washington as a sophomore. Bowers, an All-American last season, has 39 catches for a team-high 615 yards and four touchdowns, while Washington has 24 catches for 392 yards and one touchdown. Both are semifinalists for the Mackey Award, which goes to the best tight end in the country.

Why Kentucky can cover

Kentucky has one of the best running backs in the conference in Chris Rodriguez Jr. Rodriguez, a five-year-old from McDonough, Georgia, is averaging 122.2 rushing yards per game, which the SEC would lead if he played in enough games to qualify. For his career, he has 3,473 rushing yards, which is the third-highest in program history.

The Wildcats also have pass defense to slow down Georgia’s 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).
