Georgia can maintain their 100% record but may fail to cover a large spread.

Kentucky Form


Kentucky have made a flawless start to the season and have catapulted themselves to #11 in the rankings.

The Wildcats opened with a 45-10 blowout win over Louisiana-Monroe and followed that up with further home wins over Missouri (35-28) and Chattanooga (28-23).

They won their first road game a week later at South Carolina (16-10) and then returned home to cause a major upset.

Kentucky beat #10 Florida 20-13 and then built on that with a 42-21 win over LSU last weekend.

QB Will Levis is 87/135 for 1,134 yards, 11 touchdowns and two interceptions, while rushing for 163 yards and three scores.

Wan’Dale Robinson has been his favorite target, hauling in 37 catches for 527 yards and four TDs.

The star of this offense is RB Christopher Rodriguez Jr. He has rushed for 767 yards and six touchdowns, while also adding 23 receiving yards and two scores.

The defense ranks in the top 20 in the nation for total defense and points allowed per game (17.5).

Georgia Form


Georgia are now the #1 ranked team in the nation after they improved to 6-0 and Alabama lost last weekend.

The defense has been the key to their flawless start and made an early impression in the 10-3 win over #3 Clemson in the season opener.

The Bulldogs followed that up with blow-out wins over UAB (56-7) and South Carolina (40-13).

The defense then took its game to another level with back-to-back shutouts of Vanderbilt (62-0) and #8 Arkansas (37-0).

Georgia gave up some points last weekend but a 34-10 win over #18 Auburn took them to #1.

JT Daniels remains sidelined so Stetson Bennett will start at QB. He is 43/62 for 746 yards, eight touchdowns and two picks. He also has 126 rushing yards.

Brock Bowers leads the team in receiving with 315 yards and four touchdowns.

The offense is built on the back of the run game though. Zamir Whit has 354 yards and six TDs, with James Cook (245 yards, two TDs) and Kendall Milton (219 yards, one TD), also playing their part.

And when it comes to Georgia it is all about the number one defense in the nation by some distance.

Verdict

Georgia have been dominant so far this season and there is no reason to think their streak will end here.

However, Kentucky have proven to be no pushovers when facing the Bulldogs in recent years.

They boast a tough defense themselves, so we could see the Wildcats keep within three TDs and cover in a losing effort.
