When: Noon Saturday


Line: Georgia by 10 1/2


Georgia on offense: Barring injury or a change of heart, the Bulldogs will play without Todd Gurley for the last time this season. The junior tailback is serving the fourth and final game of his suspension for breaking NCAA rules by accepting money for autographs. Georgia will again look to freshman Nick Chubb to carry the rushing load. The hope is that he'll get relief from fellow freshman Sony Michel, who has been out for six weeks with a broken shoulder blade.

Kentucky on offense: The Wildcats quarterback Patrick Towles, a 6-5, 238-pound sophomore, is the grandson of Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning and seems to have inherited the good arm. In his first season as the starter, he has three games of more than 360 yards passing, including 369 and three touchdowns against Florida. But he's more than just a passer. He ran 22 times against Ohio and 23 against Mississippi State.

Georgia on defense: The Bulldogs were torched by Florida's running attack to the tune of 418 yards Saturday. As a result, much of this week's preparation was spent on "setting an edge" to provide containment of outside runs. But the Wildcats' strength is in their balance, so Georgia's corners have to be prepared to defend deep passes, too. Kentucky has recorded 10 plays of 50 or more yards, tied for sixth most in the nation.

Kentucky on defense: The Wildcats rank next-to-last in the SEC in rushing defense (188.6 ypg). But they've limited big plays. Kentucky has allowed only three plays of more than 40 yards, which ranks No. 2 nationally, and ranks second in the SEC in pass defense. Senior defensive end Bud Dupree projects as a potential NFL first-round pick.
