The Georgia Bulldogs won against the Wildcats Saturday night denting the Wildcats SEC championship hopes.
The Georgia Bulldogs pulled out a tight game in Kentucky on Saturday night against a surprisingly resilient Wildcats team. The Wildcats led for the majority of the evening despite the fact that the Bulldogs drove the ball up and down the field with regularity.
The Bulldogs took control of the game mid-way through the 4th quarter taking a 24-21 lead on a impressive run by Sony Michel, the Wildcats responded with a game tying field goal to knot the score at 24 and give Jacob Eason a chance to win the game for the Dawgs.
Eason drove the Bulldogs down the field quickly while running out the clock and setting up a game winning field goal. The Bulldogs moved to 5-4 on the season and could lock up bowl eligibility with one more win in their remaining three games. The Dawgs have quickly gone from division favorites early this season to fighting for a bowl appearance.
They still have Auburn and Georgia Tech remaining on the schedule and could do a lot to help their season with a win against either favored school in the coming weeks. The Bulldogs season has been a long one and illustrated the poor recruiting classes they have had for the past few seasons. The offensive line has been especially hard to watch for Bulldog’s fans offering little help to the running backs, resulting in a lot of tackles in the backfield and line of scrimmage.
That changed this Saturday, the offensive line used their smaller size to their advantage getting out in front and pulling lineman all over the field. That resulted in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel having the most effect on a game that they have had in quite some time piling up rushing yards and helping the Georgia offense control the clock.
The Georgia Bulldogs will prepare to face the #9th ranked Auburn Tigers next week on CBS. The Tigers are heavily favored in the game that few people are giving the Dawgs much of a chance in. Could Kirby Smart pull off an upset and help solidify his leadership as the Georgia head coach?
