Georgia football flexed their muscles on Saturday against Kentucky. While the Wildcats gave the Bulldogs a challenge, in the end, Georgia did their job and beat them by 17 points.
Even with so many injuries, including their starting quarterback JT Daniels, the Dawgs have won games in dominating ways. The next man up mentality continues to work for them, and as the second half of the season approaches, Georgia needs to stay focused.
Georgia needs to forget about their No.1 ranking, the undefeated record, just play ball and treat each week like it’s the last game of the season. Hopefully, having that kind of mindset will elevate them to a national title.
After another strong performance on Saturday, there were players deserving of those infamous dog bone helmet stickers. We decided to take a player who performed the best from the offense, defense, and special teams to don with a helmet sticker.
As a whole, the offense racked up 416 yards of total offense with 250 through the air and 166 on the ground.
The Dawgs averaged an astounding 8.9 yards a play while their defense held Kentucky to 3.5 yards a play.
Defensively, Georgia held a team that averaged 214.2 rushing yards each game to just 51 yards on Saturday. Christopher Rodriguez, the SEC’s leading rusher, had seven carries for seven yards.
The Dawgs dominated their running game but still gave up 192 yards through the air. Kentucky’s pass attack was the only way they moved the ball against Georgia.
The special teams got in on the dominating action as they blocked two kicks — a field goal and an extra point. Every phase of Georgia’s game shined against the Wildcats. Even though Kentucky gave Georgia one of the better games of the year, they still didn’t have enough.
So here are the three players that earned helmet stickers after their performance against Kentucky.
