After losing in heartbreaking fashion last week to the Auburn Tigers on a last-minute hail mary, the Georgia Bulldogs will attempt to get back on track on Saturday night when they host the Kentucky Wildcats in an SEC showdown at Sanford Stadium.
Kentucky has suspended sophomore defensive back Cody Quinn and freshman defensive end Jason Hatcher for Saturday night’s game at Georgia. Quinn has 26 tackles including 1.5 for loss and three pass breakups. Hatcher, a backup to team sacks leader Alvin Dupree, has 15 tackles and a sack to go with three QB hurries.
Without Quinn and junior Nate Willis, who is expected to miss a second straight game with a knee injury, the Cats are down to true freshman Jaleel Hytchye and sophomore Fred Tiller as the only corners available with significant game reps.
Hytchye has made two career tackles in six games. Tiller has 39 tackles, four for loss, three pass breakups and two fumble recoveries this season.
Looking at all of the injures and suspensions, one thing is painfully clear: The Cats’ pass defense takes a major hit against a Georgia secondary that is prone to giving up big plays through the air.
