Kickoff: Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (FSN)
Spread: Georgia by 28
Watchability: The depleted Wildcats are in for another bloodbath, but Georgia fans will enjoy watching their rested and angry team take out frustration. Look for the Bulldogs to build a big lead, then pull starters in anticipation of the Oct. 27 showdown with Florida. Kentucky likely will start freshman QB Jalen Whitlow as fellow freshman Patrick Towles is recovering from a high-ankle sprain.
Shining stars: Georgia: Aaron Murray. The Wildcats just allowed five passing TDs in a weather-shortened game against Arkansas. Now Murray, coming off a terrible performance at South Carolina, gets to shred them. He's thrown for 1,487 yards and 12 TDs against four INTs. Kentucky: Raymond Sanders. The junior averages 5.6 yards per carry but hasn't gotten enough opportunities because Kentucky is often way behind.
Who could steal the show: Georgia: Todd Gurley. The true freshman has run for 575 yards and nine TDs in six games, averaging 7.1 yards per carry. He was held to 39 yards by South Carolina, so is bound to explode here. Kentucky: Avery Williamson. The junior linebacker ranks third in the SEC with 9.7 tackles per game. He also has an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
You going? Ranking the road trip: Basketball practice is underway, which means football takes a back seat in Lexington. Georgia fans can gobble up all the tickets they want.
Magic number for Georgia: 11. Georgia is No. 11 in the first BCS standings. The Bulldogs play No. 2 Florida next week in Jacksonville.
Magic number for Kentucky: 12. The Wildcats are 12-20 in Joker Phillips' third season. He might save his job, though. Injuries have knocked out two quarterbacks and other key players.
The game comes down to: Georgia averages 41.3 points and Kentucky gives up 32.9, most in the SEC. The Bulldogs can name their score.
Prediction: Georgia 48, Kentucky 17
