Stout Defense, Stuttering Offense Steer Kentucky to 16-6 loss to No. 1 Georgia

Kentucky football is no longer in the business of moral victories.

That doesn’t mean it shouldn’t accept any.

Despite trailing 16-6 to No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs (11-0, 8-0 SEC), the Wildcats left Kroger Field with many positive results, both offensively and defensively.

“It came up short but the effort was there,” said Britain head coach Mark Stoops after the game. “It just showed some courage and determination, some of the personality of the way we play.”

The Kentucky defense did all it could and kept the Dawgs in the red zone on just one touchdown in five drives. UGA QB Stetson Bennett was held on just 116 yards of pass while superstar tight end Brock Bowers could only catch a pair of passes totaling 10 yards.
