Georgia Football has had to fight a tough battle against Kentucky as the Wildcats came prepared for the Dawgs. However, leave it up to Brock Bowers, the guy who has gotten done all season, to give Georgia some much-needed momentum.
The Dawgs got the ball to start the second half with a 14-7 lead, and it would only take two touchdown passes for Georgia to make it 21-7.
Stetson connected with Bowers on a 59-yard touchdown pass but had it taken away due to a holding penalty.
The referees haven’t been very consistent during this game, but they were adamant it was holding on that touchdown pass.
Georgia didn’t let it bother them too much as Ladd McConkey got a 15-yard run to get the first down and keep the drive going. James Cook took it two more yards on the next play, then Bennett said, let’s try this touchdown pass again.
Bennett connected with Bowers on a 27-yard touchdown pass, but before the Dawgs could kick the extra point, the refs had to review a complete pass that Bowers didn’t bobble at all. Only Bowers could catch that ball, but Kentucky’s defensive back was aggressive.
However, Bowers was more aggressive, caught the ball, held onto it, and scored his sixth touchdown of the season.
Georgia is having to play harder than it has had to since the Clemson game as the Wildcats came ready to give the Dawgs a game.
However, since the start of the second half, the Dawgs have looked a little more like the team we’ve grown to watch the last five weeks. Georgia’s defense forced a three-and-out against Kentucky, then drove it right back down the field to kick a field goal and make it 24-7 in the middle of the third quarter.
The freshman has three catches for 57 yards and one score.
Bowers is just one of the guys making sure they’re staying physical against the Wildcats, and thankfully the refs couldn’t find a way to take back the second touchdown pass. The running backs are fighting for their lives, and the other wideouts fight hard to make catches.
Georgia will have to fight to beat the Wildcats, but as this game progresses, the Dawgs’ depth will take over and be a deciding factor.
