Challenges for Kentucky

The Georgia Bulldogs in 2021 are a challenge for any football team. The problem is scoring on the Bulldogs. The Dawgs allow a little over a field goal on average (5.5 ppg). The reason that defense is so strong is that Georgia has one of the biggest, baddest defensive lines in college football history. The key to facing a very good defensive line is for the quarterback to get rid of the ball quickly. Doing this limits the ability of that D-Line. If the ball has already thrown downfield when a monster defensive linemen gets through there’s nothing he can do other than knock the quarterback to ground which will earn him a personal foul. I’m sure finding ways to score on Georgia is at the top of the UK staff’s to-do list. One other thing Kentucky can is limit turnovers. UK currently has the worst turnover margin (-1.33) in the SEC. It’s amazing that they are 6-0 with that turnover margin. If for one game they can limit the turnovers to one or none that will enhance their chances of winning.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
