No. 17 Georgia hits the road to take on Kentucky

Kentucky and No. 17 Georgia are both looking to bounce back from difficult losses and keep their postseason hopes on track.

The visiting Bulldogs (6-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference, No. 20 CFP) aim for their fifth straight win over the Wildcats (5-4, 2-4) Saturday as they try to stay within reach of first-place Missouri in the Eastern Division.

Kentucky wants to end a three-game losing streak that has stalled the rebuilding Wildcats' quest for becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 2010.

That mutual urgency could set the stage for another tense meeting between the schools.

Georgia owns this series 53-12-2, but beating the Wildcats in Lexington has been tough with seven points or fewer deciding three of the past four games at Commonwealth Stadium.
