Georgia @ Kentucky

I really like Kentucky’s chances to upset their SEC rival Georgia (favored by four points), at home in Lexington this weekend.

Both teams are still in the hunt to win the SEC East, although the loser of this game will have an uphill battle.

Neither team has been particularly impressive in SEC play thus far (both boasting losing records), but Georgia has really struggled on the road (0-3), with losses to South Carolina, Mississippi State, and Colorado.

On the other hand, Kentucky has been fairly dominant at Commonwealth Stadium, boosting their home record to 3-1 after last weekend’s big win against South Carolina.

Mike Hartline blew up against the Gamecocks, tossing the ball for 349 yards and four touchdowns.  I say the Kentucky offense continues to roll behind their senior QB, and the Wildcats pull this one off in a close one.
