The Cats and Dawgs face off in Athens.

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats are in Athens, Georgia today, aiming to pull off a huge upset against the Georgia Bulldogs, ranked #1 in the country last week before falling to the Auburn Tigers.

Kentucky nearly pulled off the upset at Commonwealth Stadium last year, losing on a game-winning field goal. But this year’s Bulldogs are a lot better, and with the game in Athens, most aren’t giving Kentucky much of a chance to pull off the victory.

A win would give the Wildcats a huge eighth win on the season and some serious momentum going into next week’s matchup with Louisville. However, many in the fanbase would likely be pleased with a competitive showing today against the Bulldogs, who are still in the playoff hunt.

To get you caught up and ready for kickoff (3:30 E.T. on CBS), here are a few links for some pregame reading and prepare for today’s game.

For all the essentials for today’s game, including television, radio, and streaming info, as well as odds and some pre-game notes, go here.

For Kentucky to pull off the upset, they will need to do several things, including a heavy dose of Benny Snell and a big day from the Wildcats defense. Here are our keys to the game.

An upset could move Kentucky up in bowl projections, but it seems that as of now, the Liberty Bowl has their eyes on the Wildcats.

If you haven’t already, start jumping on the Terry Wilson bandwagon. Personally, I think he would be a great fit for the Wildcats next year as a dual-threat option that could be lethal with Benny Snell next year.

Make sure to stay here and enjoy some friendly discourse throughout the game.

Go Cats.
