Right in the middle of Georgia’s seven game winning streak, it’s easy to forget what a struggle the Kentucky game was, especially for Georgia’s offense. The Dawgs turned the ball over four times and Stafford was held under 100 yards passing – the only time that happened all season.
But the defense played tough against a good Wildcat offense. And the special teams were just that. Although Asher Allen’s 82 yard kickoff return was wasted by a subsequent Moreno fumble, the punt return team came through in a big way in the third quarter with a crucial punt block.

As the AB-H described the action,
… Senior safety Kelin Johnson helped change the momentum in his final home game.
With Georgia trailing 10-7 in the third quarter, Johnson rushed up the middle and blocked Tim Masthay’s punt and Ramarcus Brown recovered at the Kentucky 19.
Six plays later, Thomas Brown scored on a 1-yard run to put Georgia ahead for the first time 14-10 and the Bulldogs never relinquished the lead.
It was a fine way for the seniors to go out on top in their last game in front of the home folks.
