Georgia enters the game fresh off a stinging loss to unranked South Carolina that dropped the Bulldogs from No. 3 to No. 10 in both major polls.
Oddsmakers predict that Kentucky will bear the brunt of Georgia’s pain. The Dogs were favored by 25 as of Friday afternoon. Heavy rain from Tropical Storm Nestor could make points hard to come by for either team, though, helping the Wildcats cover that spread.
Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm hopes to rebound from his day of three interceptions in the 20-17 loss in overtime to South Carolina. (Georgia committed four turnovers in that game.) Kentucky moved wide receiver Lynn Bowden, its best player on offense, to quarterback because the No. 1 QB, Terry Wilson, was injured, and his backup proved ineffective.
