Usually, I just mention turnovers as a background caveat to the outcome of a Georgia game, but in Kentucky’s case, it’s not background. It’s front and center.
What would it take for Kentucky to pull off an upset over Georgia this Saturday?
JC: Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. And more turnovers. Kentucky grounded Mississippi State’s “Air Raid” with six interceptions in a 24-2 win. It picked off three passes and forced a fumble in the win at Tennessee. Jordan Wright register a Pick Six versus MSU. Kelvin Joseph and Jamin Davis each registered a Pick Six in Knoxville. Stoops could use one (or more) of those on Saturday.
Here’s UK’s offensive game log so far.
The ‘Cats lost a game when they averaged better than seven and a half yards a play and won one by better than three touchdowns averaging less than three yards a play.
Overlay that with their turnover margin game log and it begins to make sense.
Kentucky is 2-0 in games with positive turnover margin and 0-3 in games with negative turnover margin. It’s a good team, but not good enough to survive its mistakes.
Hopefully, the staff has gotten the message to Bennett about that.
