Comments

This one is a pivotal SEC East showdown, the blue vs. the red. Hats off to Mark Stoops for the job he has done at Kentucky. The Cats are on course for a major bowl game. However, Georgia should be the clear favorite in this one. The Bulldog’s defense is one of the better college units of the last 25 years. It’s very hard to score on Georgia. If you can’t score you can’t win. Kentucky puts up a decent fight but falls to the Dawgs.
