Mark Stoops opens up about Kentucky’s hard-fought loss to Georgia

Kentucky gave leader Georgia everything it wanted on Saturday.

In the end, however, the Wildcats came up short as the Bulldogs swept away Lexington in a 16-6 win.

Mark Stoops’ team had their chances, but couldn’t make the necessary plays, especially in the 4th quarter.

The Kentucky defense did its job and held Georgia to three field goals in the first half. The Wildcats also only allowed 116 passing yards in the game.

However, the offensive could not follow. A failed 2-point conversion attempt and a missed field goal in the last 15 minutes could have changed the complexion of the game.

Instead, missed opportunities continue to be the issue for Kentucky (6-5) this season.

After the game, Stoops met with the media to discuss the result and his team’s play.
