The Kentucky Wildcats and Georgia Bulldogs meet Saturday in week 12 SEC college football action at Kroger Field. The Georgia Bulldogs look to remain undefeated and in the CFB Playoff conversation. The Kentucky Wildcats have split their last 8 games.

The Georgia Bulldogs have won 10 straight road games. Stetson Bennett is completing 67.8 percent of his passes for 2,895 yards, 14 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey have combined for 1,193 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns, while Darnell Washington has 24 receptions. The Georgia Bulldogs ground game is averaging 192.5 yards per contest, and Daijun Edwards leads the way with 497 yards and 7 touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia is allowing 11.6 points and 269.8 yards per game. Malaki Starks leads the Georgia Bulldogs with 48 tackles, Nolan Smith has 3 sacks and Christopher Smith has 2 interceptions.

The Kentucky Wildcats have won 4 of their last 6 home games. Will Levis is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,012 yards, 16 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Tayvion Robinson and Barion Brown have combined for 885 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Dane Key has 26 receptions. The Kentucky Wildcats ground game is averaging 123.5 yards per contest, and Chris Rodriguez Jr. leads the way with 733 yards and 6 touchdowns. Defensively, Kentucky is allowing 20 points and 317 yards per game. DeAndre Square leads the Kentucky Wildcats with 55 tackles, J.J. Weaver has 2 sacks and Keidron Smith has 2 interceptions.

The Bulldogs are 37-15 ATS in their last 52 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wildcats are 20-6-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 19-9-1 ATS in their last 29 home games. The under is 8-3-1 in Bulldogs last 12 games overall. The under is 10-1 in Wildcats last 11 games overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Georgia Bulldogs are clearly the better team on both sides of the ball and should be big favorites. However, this is the biggest home game for the Kentucky Wildcats in forever, and there should be a loud atmosphere with motivated players. Kentucky is an improved program and quietly has a defense that’s 17th in total defense and 23rd in scoring defense. Kentucky is not a pushover like this line suggests. I’ll take a shot with the points.
