ATHENS, Ga (WLEX)- — Despite only completing two passes in the game, Kentucky had Georgia right where they wanted them for nearly three quarters in a 21-0 loss.

Kentucky once again sent Lynn Bowden out to handle the quarterback duties and he did what he could. Lynn had 17 carries for 99 yards, but the offense around him racked up penalties, added in some timely dropped passes which never allowed Kentucky to cap off a drive.

Georgia didn't get on the board until the six-minute mark in the 3rd quarter. That's when the Bulldogs capitalized off a butchered punt from Max Duffy in the form of a 39-yard D'Andre Swift TD run on the first play of the drive.

Swift had 21 carries for 179 yards and 2 TD's Georgia. The Bulldogs improved to 6-1 with the victory.

The Wildcats fall to 3-4 on the season and drop to 1-4 in SEC play. Next up is the Missouri Tigers at Kroger Field on Saturday.
