The 'Cats enter this week on a three-game losing streak in which they've fallen out of SEC East contention and are just trying to assure themselves of bowl eligibility now. The Bulldogs aren't much better with a two-game losing streak of their own. Both teams will look to get back on track this Saturday will be they play between the hedges in Athens.
The Wildcats are coming off a loss to Tennessee which saw the Vols coming from behind twice in the first to erase early UK leads. The 'Cats jumped out to an early 7-0 lead thanks to a 77-yard fumble return for a touchdown from senior defensive tackle Cory Johnson in the first quarter.
After the Vols rallied to take a 10-7 lead, UK scored late in the second quarter on a Patrick Towles run to take a 14-10 lead. From there, the Vols would take control and come out of Commonwealth Stadium with a 52-21 win, the worst loss of the Mark Stoops era in Kentucky.
As for Georgia, they're coming off a 27-3 loss to No. 11 Florida in Jacksonville. UGA is once again relying heavily on their ground game to carry the offense, averaging 197.2 rushing yards per game compared to just 206.4 passing yards per contest.
Defensively, the Bulldogs are holding opponents to 321 total yards and 20.4 points per game. The Dawgs haven't been quite the same since star running back Nick Chubb suffered a season-ending knee injury. Chubb had 747 rushing yards and seven TDs through six games before his injury and was a strong Heisman contender.
But as is always the case, Georgia is loaded with weapons in the backfield, and Sony Michel has emerged in Chubb's absence. Michel has 102 rushes for 553 yards and four TDs this season to go with 18 catches for 206 yards and three TDs. He'll be the focal point of UGA's offense this week.
A big reason why is the uncertainty at QB. Greyson Lambert, Faton Bauta and Brice Ramsey have all played this season with none of them looking particularly great. Lambert has started seven games and Bauta started vs. Florida last week. Lambert is 100-for-156 with nine TDs and 1,276 yards. Bauta went 15-for-33 with 154 yards vs. the Gators.
Despite the issues at QB, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell is a dangerous pass-catcher who can do damage all over the field. He is leading the Dawgs with 39 catches for 565 yards and four TDs.
