Georgia Holds 14-3 Lead, But Dawgs Shooting Themselves In The Foot In First Half


Georgia currently holds a 14-3 lead over Kentucky in Lexington.

A quick score following a massive Mecole Hardman 64 yard punt return gave the Dawgs a 7-0 lead.

Kentucky followed that up with a field goal and cut the lead to 7-3.

Georgia then bounced back to a nice lead with an amazing touchdown run by running back D’Andre Swift.

The Dawg and Wildcats returned to their respective locker rooms with Georgia holding a 14-3 lead. Momentum has swung in favor of both teams throughout the game, but for Georgia, two fumbles in enemy territory have kept Kentucky in the ball game.

With 1:20 remaining in the first half, and Georgia at the Kentucky 26 yard line, freshman Trey Hill delivered a high snap to Jake Fromm, who could not reel in the errant snap. Hill is in at center for the injured starter Lamont Gaillard.

Kentucky would go on to score a field goal off of the fumble.

Then again, as the first half was winding down, Georgia was putting together a nice drive with hopes of scoring at least a field goal before intermission.

After getting the ball all the way down to the Kentucky 27 yard line, with 15 seconds remaining, Georgia was in position to extend its lead before half.

But another miscue on offense occurred, and Fromm and Swift were not on the same page as the handoff resulted in a fumble.

Both fumbles were recovered by Kentucky star linebacker Josh Allen.

Two fumbles inside the 30 yard line have hurt Georgia so far, but the Bulldogs will have the ball to start the third quarter with a 14-3 lead.

A touchdown to open the second half would make things difficult for the Wildcats.
