Kentucky Wildcats Game Notes
The Kentucky Wildcats moved to 5-0 on the season after their impressive 33-14 home victory against the Florida Gators. Ray Davis led the way for the Wildcats in the win with a career day accounting for four Wildcat TD’s. Davis finished the game with 280 rushing yards on 26 carries and 3 rushing TD’s. For good measure, Davis also caught a nine-yard touchdown. This is no time to rest for Davis, as the Wildcats will call his number again in a showdown against the #1 ranked Bulldogs.
Georgia Bulldogs Game Notes
Despite being down by seven in the third quarter, Georgia prevailed late to grab a crucial road victory against the Auburn Tigers. With the win, Georgia moved to 5-0 on the year and extended their win streak to 22 games. All-American Brock Bowers led the way for the Dawgs in the second half recording 148 of his 157 total receiving yards after the break. Furthermore, Bowers hauled in a 40-yard TD pass with less than three minutes remaining, which turned out to be the game winner.

Kentucky vs. Georgia BETTING PREDICTION
The Wildcats enter this game after a massive home win against the Florida Gators, while Georgia just continues to find ways to win games, although it has not been as stress free as many Bulldog fans would like.
Kentucky running back Ray Davis has been the topic of discussion leading up to this game after his insane performance against the Gators where he rushed for 280 yards. Davis is a beast, after last week that is no secret and while Kentucky will try to get him going again, the Georgia defense will be keying in on him.
In my opinion, this game depends on if the NC State transfer Devin Leary can make enough plays with his arm to keep Kentucky in this ballgame. Leary has been decent for the undefeated Wildcats, but he has not been called upon to make a lot of critical plays yet this season.
I think Leary will be up to the challenge here, he is an experienced guy who has played well in a lot of big games in his career. Sanford Stadium is going to electric, and the Dawgs will be ready to go, however Leary and Davis will be able to make enough plays to keep the Wildcats inside the number.
Kentucky vs. Georgia Prediction: Kentucky +14.5
