Kentucky Falls To No. 8 Georgia 24-13

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia has done all it can. Now, the
Bulldogs need a little help to reach the Southeastern Conference
championship game.
Knowshon Moreno ran for 124 yards, Matthew Stafford surprised
Kentucky with a 10-yard touchdown run and No. 8 Georgia overcame
four turnovers and an early deficit to beat 22nd-ranked Kentucky
24-13 Saturday.
The Bulldogs (9-2, 6-2 SEC) clinched at least a tie for first in
the Eastern Division and will face top-ranked LSU in the Dec. 1
title game in nearby Atlanta if Tennessee loses either of its last
two games.
The Vols were facing state rival Vanderbilt on Saturday, and
will close the regular season next weekend at Kentucky.
The Wildcats (7-4, 3-4) didn't have any hope of reaching the SEC
championship game, but they were trying to win out and claim at
least a share of the division crown. But their high-scoring
offense, which was averaging more than 37 points a game, couldn't
take advantage of two interceptions and two fumbles by the
Georgia's defense saved the day, holding Kentucky to its lowest
output of the season, despite spotting the Wildcats a 10-lead, and
helping avenge a 24-20 loss in Lexington last season.

    What Happened? We had the potential to do much more! We wont have a team like this again for the next 10 years. Oh well, at least there is basketball...oh yeah...Gardner Webb! Tough year to be a UK FAN!

    The Wildcats that we love to hate are back for the long haul I suspect. I believe they can do better, unfortunately I don't believe they will. They've given up for the season because they know they are going to a Bowl game and so they don't care anymore.
