Kentucky’s defense continues to impress while Goodfellow boots bombs

Kentucky and everyone knew Georgia would score points but it was more about how the Wildcats would handle that.

They did with flying colors (except the above-mentioned fumble)

This unit led by DeAndre Square week after week has not faltered and gets tougher and tougher.

Josh Paschal, Square, Jacquez Jones, Quandre Mosely, Yusuf Corker, JJ Weaver, Carrington Valentine, Devonte Robinson, Cedric Dort, Tyrell Ajian, and the rest but up nearly identical performances from game to game.  Justin Rogers has stepped in well for the injured Marquan McCall.

In Georgia’s seven games Kentucky held them to their second-lowest scoring this year other than Clemson’s 10 in the season opener. The Dawgs won’t see another defense as good at Kentucky’s the rest of the year.

Got to give some props to punter Colin Goodfellow. He wasn’t expected to start this year replacing wonder kicker Max Duffy, but he has now assumed those duties after Wilson Berry struggled to acclimate to the American football field.

On Saturday he had his best day despite kicking it seven times. He averaged 51.1 yards per kick including a career-long 70 yarder.
