Challenges for Georgia

Kentucky is coming off its first loss to Vanderbilt in six years. The Cats must quickly put that one behind them. Wildcat quarterback Will Levis is projected to be a first-round NFL draft pick. In 233 attempts Levis has completed 154 passes for 2,012 yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Another concern for Georgia is running back Christopher Rodriguez Jr. In six games played, Rodriguez has 733 yards and six touchdowns. In 2021 he piled up 1,392 yards for nine TDs.

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