The Georgia Bulldogs are set for another big game after using a strong second half to defeat Florida last weekend.
The No. 6 Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1 SEC) defeated the Gators 36-17 in a game that was close at halftime, with Georgia leading 13-7.
The opponent this weekend is No. 11 Kentucky (7-1, 5-1) in what is essentially an SEC semifinals game. The winner secures a spot in the SEC Championship game to represent the East division. A win would give the Wildcats their first SEC East title.
