Twitter reactions to Kentucky vs. Georgia

The Wildcats lose their first game of the 2021 season.

The Kentucky Wildcats had one of their biggest games in program history Saturday as they faced the No. 1 team in the nation, the Georgia Bulldogs.

It was a great start for the Kentucky defense as they showed up ready for the battle with the top team in the country.

Georgia’s offense was held in check early as the first quarter came to a close with the game tied 0-0.

Right at the end of the first quarter, Kentucky forced a fumble, but no Kentucky defender managed to fall on the ball as Georgia recovered. On the first play of the second quarter, the Bulldogs found the end zone to take a 7-0 lead.

Following yet another three and out by the Cats’ offense, the Bulldogs marched 80-yards in just over two minutes to extend the lead to 14-0.

Kentucky had to answer to keep the game alive and that is exactly what they did.

Liam Coen called a fantastic series of plays as the Cats were able to put together a 13-play, 75-yard drive that was capped off with a one-yard TD pass from Will Levis to Justin Rigg to make it 14-7.

Georgia marched right down the field to start the second half and found the end zone to make it a 21-7 ballgame.

Kentucky’s offense found a good rhythm but drops continued to plague them all day and after a punt, Georgia added a field goal to make it 24-7.

Liam Coen and the Kentucky offense put together another solid drive but had to settle for a FG attempt. Unfortunately, that attempt was blocked.

Georgia would find the end zone once again following the block to make it 30-7.

Kentucky got the ball back with 11:27 left on the clock, and they used 11:23 of it as they drove down the field in 22 plays to punch it in the end zone again. The extra point was blocked, and it is Georgia that came away with a 30-13 win.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the game.
