What Kentucky Media Is Saying About Georgia Football Prior To Big Matchup


Ahead of Georgia big matchup vs Kentucky, we take a look at what some respected Wildcat media outlets are saying about the Bulldogs this week.

Here are a few excerpts from their stories on the Dawgs.


John Morgan-Francis, a Sea of Blue

The departure of top-linebacker Roquan Smith from Georgia’s defense a season ago has left a gaping hole for Snell to take advantage of.

Georgia, though, has the far advantage in talent and the same could be said for coaching. The team that turns the ball over coughs up the game as well. While both quarterbacks have had their shaky slumps, Fromm did compete in a national championship game.

Prediction: Georgia 17, Kentucky 14

Big Blue Banter:

Georgia does not put pressure on the quarterback. Ranking dead last in the SEC, the Bulldogs have 10 sacks on the year, which is the same amount as Josh Allen. They also rank last in the SEC in tackles for loss with 31.

Georgia’s defensive line is not very active, and they can be handled with ease. When you look back at the dominating game Kentucky’s offensive line had against arguably the best defensive line in the SEC, Mississippi State, it looks good for the Cats.

Kentucky Sports Radio:

Basically no one outside the state of Kentucky thinks that the Wildcats have a chance here. Georgia was only mere seconds from winning a national title last year, and the Bulldogs still have the most talented overall roster in the SEC East.

However, I think the Wildcats matchup nicely with the Bulldogs, and it has everything to do with that incredibly talented UK defense.

Josh Allen is straight up the best defensive player in the nation, and yes that is including Houston’s Ed Oliver who is awesome in his own right. Allen will easily best player on the field Saturday so expect him to get acquainted with Jake Fromm often.

The Cats must also calamities. These Bulldogs have feasted upon those. When a pass skipped off South Carolina running back Rico Dowdle, Baker returned the interception 55 yards. Fellow defensive back Tyson Campbell returned a Missouri fumble 64 yards for a touchdown. (Georgia also blocked a Mizzou punt for a TD.) Last Saturday, Florida’s first possession ended with Georgia’s Richard LeCounte returning a Gator fumble 32 yards to set up an early Georgia score.

Those things that can’t happen if Kentucky is going to extend the dream and win the program’s most important game since a young Bear Bryant walked the sidelines at old Stoll Field over a half-century ago.
