The Kentucky Wildcats nearly pulled off the victory last night. The big game-changer goes back to the penalty against the special teams for running into the punter. Take that away and it’s possible that the Wildcats win the game. From a defensive standpoint, the Wildcats defense came out stronger than last week and more like what we saw in the first half against South Carolina. In limiting Georgia to 77 rushing yards on 32 carries, the Wildcats held an opponent to under 100 yards for the first time since Tennessee rushed for 61 yards last season. The 77 yards were not only the fewest rushing yards allowed by the Kentucky defense but the fewest rushing yards by the Georgia offense.
From an offensive standpoint, Jonathan George set a career high with rushing for 87 yards on 12 carries.
