The big talk going into this week is the success of Kentucky’s offense under Lynn Bowden. Sure, he was playing against Arkansas but I think that with another week to expand the offense to suit Bowden, Kentucky will be able to move the ball decently against Georgia. I think the most important thing to focus on for Mark Stoops is getting off to a fast start. If we can get Georgia down early, maybe, just maybe, we will have a chance.
Georgia’s offense is well balanced with D’Andre Swift rushing for 95 yards per game and Jake Fromm passing for 228 ypg. They have four receivers that average 40+ yards per game in George Pickens, Lawrence Cager, Dominick Blaylock, and Demetris Robertson. Lawrence Cager is listed as doubtful due to a rib and shoulder injuries.
Our defense has played well in portions of most of our games. Boogie Watson leads the team with 3.5 sacks with Calvin Taylor close behind with 3 sacks of his own. Those two create matchup problems for offensive lines and on obvious passing downs can pin their ears back and make Jake Fromm uncomfortable.
On special teams our All-World punter, Max Duffy will be able to flip the field and create an advantage in field position. Matt Ruffolo made a 50 yard field goal last week and could be busy this week if we can get onto the Georgia side of the field.
