Georgia football-Kentucky live updates, score, analysis

Fourth quarter

Georgia 16, Kentucky 6, 9:52

9 plays, 99 yards, 5:02

Barion Brown caught his sixth pass for an 8-yard touchdown. The Wildcats failed to convert the two-point conversion.

A 42-yard completion to Brown flipped the field for the Wildcats. The freshman receiver beat Christopher Smith in the secondary to get open.

Kentucky stopped Georgia runs on third-and-goal and fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to take possession. It has been another week of red zone struggles for UGA’s offense.

Third quarter

Georgia 16, Kentucky 0, 6:22

Attrition appears to be taking its toll on the Kentucky front. Georgia averaged 7.7 yards per carry on that drive.

Second quarter

Georgia 9, Kentucky 0, 0:00

11 plays, 56 yards, 2:03

Podlesny has ended all three of Georgia’s drives with a field goal. The senior kicker converted a 37-yarder, his 20th of the season.

Podlesny is 10-for-10 from inside 30 yards, contributing to UGA’s FBS-leading 98.2% red zone percentage.

The Bulldog defense forced the game’s first three-and-out on the previous drive.

Kentucky appears committed to its run game despite little success in the first half. The Wildcats have 19 rushes compared to 8 pass attempts, but are averaging just 2.9 yards per carry on the ground.

It will be interesting to see if Kentucky stays with the run game and if it does, if the Georgia front wears down as the game continues.

The Wildcats have done well limiting UGA’s possessions with long drives of their own. Kentucky’s first two drives combined for nearly 18 minutes. The Bulldogs do start the second half with the ball, though.

Georgia 6, Kentucky 0, 3:40

10 plays, 47 yards 5:03

Georgia was unable to score from inside the 10-yard line, so Podlesny kicked his second field goal of the day, a 24-yarder. It was just UGA’s second drive of the game.
