Perusing Kentucky’s schedule, I find their largest deficit in a game at any point this season is seven points, which happened twice, against UL Monroe and Florida. Both were short-lived, first quarter leads. Both were home games.
So what happens if Georgia gets on top early on by a couple of scores? And that’s certainly not an unreasonable expectation. With the exception of the opener against Clemson, the Dawgs have opened at least a two-score lead by halftime in every game this season (and even against Clemson had a 7-0 lead at the half).
It’ll be a road game. It’ll be a loud environment. Can Kentucky punch back? I don’t know. The thing is, this UK team doesn’t really know whether it can, either, because it hasn’t been tested like that yet.
