New, 2 comments

The Cats had a big opportunity this week but came up short against a very talented Georgia team

Well, that was not how we all had hoped it would go.

The defense struggled unlike we have seen all season and Georgia made it look easy out there.

While this week has been a lot of fun building up to the game, the Cats come up short and the Georgia Bulldogs win the SEC East.

Kentucky played a very solid first half but the difference in the scoreboard was the mistakes that they made. Too many missed tackles and penalties allowed Georgia to get into the end zone twice in the first half letting them jump out to a 14-3 lead.

Georgia proved to be on a completely different level than the Cats and came out in the second half and blew this one wide open. After an 83-yard TD run, Georgia had built up a commanding 28-3 lead.

The Cats never quit and kept working but ultimately the Bulldogs came away with the 34-17 win.

Now, the Cats will have to go back to work and get ready for a road trip to Tennessee to face the Volunteers.

Box Score

Game MVP

All season the defense has been outstanding, but they struggled a lot in this one, so the MVP will be coming from the offensive side of the ball.

Benny Snell came into this one with a chance to become the first player in Kentucky history to have three 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

And he did just that.

Benny carried the ball 20 times for 73-yards and a touchdown. He was one of the better performers on the field today for the Cats.

However, the MVP is going to Terry Wilson in this one. He made a few mistakes but for the most part he was very solid and was excellent when the Cats were trying to climb back into the game.

He finished 23/28 for 226 yards and a touchdown. He looked at his best when the Cats played fast and I think the Cats have found their offense.
