Bowl streak ends in Athens

There will be no sixth consecutive bowl appearance for Kentucky.

The Cats took the football field a 30-point underdog and owners of three atrocious performances on the road in the Southeastern Conference. It exited having gained a measure of respect but with a significant step back in the program’s development.

Georgia punched its ticket to the SEC Championship Game by suffocating Kentucky after halftime, turning a 10-6 deficit late in the first half into a 19-10 victory at Sanford Stadium. The Cats (4-7, 1-6) managed just 13 yards in the second half and lost their eighth consecutive conference game on the road.

Despite a game effort by the defense the Cats couldn’t overcome four turnovers, two of which came deep in their own territory and led directly to Georgia scores.
