Saturday marks only the sixth time for Georgia and Kentucky to meet in football with each team ranked in the Associated Press poll. (Georgia is No. 1 and Kentucky No. 11.)

It’s also only the third time that’s happened in the past 44 years, but the one in 1977 was memorable. No. 8 Kentucky went to Athens and defeated unranked Georgia 33-0 in the Bulldogs’ homecoming game. Prince Charles attended the game, as did the Godfather of Soul, James Brown.

While they’re celebrating homecoming again in Athens, some things are different this year: Georgia not only is ranked, but it sits atop the poll, and neither the prince nor the Godfather will attend.

Georgia holds its first No. 1 regular-season ranking since 1982, when the Bulldogs were ranked at that spot for five weeks, from Nov. 8 (after a 44-0 victory against Florida) until the final poll after the bowl games.

Georgia lost in the Sugar Bowl that season to No. 2 Penn State in the de facto national-title game, 27-23 in Herschel Walker’s final game at UGA.
