Football staff picks: UK vs. Georgia

The Kernel sports staff members share their insight on UK’s upcoming showdown against Georgia.

UK 7  Georgia 48

Aaron Murray will likely be the best quarterback that UK has faced all season long. That doesn’t bode well for the Cats’ defensive backs who have been susceptible to the long ball this season.

UK 3  Georgia 49

The Bulldogs are on quite a roll and have a spot in the SEC title game secured with a win. Georgia will come out focused and never let up, holding the Cats to just a late-game field goal.

UK 6  Georgia 52

After beating Auburn by 38 last weekend, UK will pose little challenge to a dominant Bulldog team in Athens. Aaron Murray will continue his quietly efficient season while Max Smith will struggle to build any rhythm.

UK 10  Georgia 45

The Bulldogs’ defense ranks 12th in the nation in points against, allowing just 18.6 points per game, and SEC sacks leader Jarvis Jones will be a frequent visitor in the Cats’ backfield.

UK 9  Georgia 38

The Bulldogs are running on all cylinders, as Mark Richt has this team very focused. UK will give up more than 500 yards of total offense in the defeat.
