The Georgia Bulldogs kept their playoff hopes alive in a 42-13 romp over Kentucky that did a lot to quiet worries after the Dawgs first loss of the season. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel rumbled and again looked dominant.

The Georgia Bulldogs needed to win big after getting walloped by Auburn last week and they answered against a tough Kentucky team. After struggling early in the game the Bulldog’s run game started rolling and the game quickly got out of hand.

With the 42-13 win Georgia is one game away from finishing with only one loss on the season and if they can do so will keep their playoff hopes alive. Regardless Georgia will get a shot at Alabama or another shot at Auburn dependent on the result of next weeks Iron Bowl.

For Georgia the win is just the first step towards their playoff hopes another domineering win will be needed against Georgia Tech to close out the regular season.

After that the Dawgs will face the winner of the Iron bowl on the first Saturday in December. The biggest take away from the Georgia win should be the play calling improvement and the run game getting it going behind a great offensive line performance.
