Young Wildcats learning a lot despite losses

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - By now, nothing should surprise Kentucky's underclassmen.

Injuries have created significant playing opportunities for more than two dozen freshmen and sophomores against Southeastern Conference heavyweights - including Florida, South Carolina and Mississippi State.

Another foe ranked in the top 15 looms Saturday night when No. 13 Georgia (5-1, 3-1 SEC) comes to Lexington seeking a rebound after losing to South Carolina two weeks ago. That likely means another tough less for Kentucky (1-6, 0-4).

The Wildcats are learning - and losing - as they go and last Saturday night's 49-7 loss at Arkansas featured more growing pains. The Razorbacks opened with a 74-yard touchdown pass, led 42-0 at halftime and outgained Kentucky 533-170 in a game shortened to 40 minutes by storms.

Georgia has dominated the series with Kentucky, 51-12-2.
