No. 1 Georgia steamrolls No. 11 Kentucky in latest proof it is college football’s best team

  • October 17, 2021

It turns out the handicappers were off the mark, but not by much: Georgia was a three-touchdown favorite against Kentucky but ended only winning by 17 points, 30-13, after the Wildcats scored a meaningless touchdown with no time left on the clock.

The ability to score once, let alone twice, says something about the once-unbeaten Wildcats, clearly the second-best team in the SEC East. That also says something about the Bulldogs, who are expected to dominate and have done just that to remain the unbeaten and unquestioned No. 1 team in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll.

Every week paints the same picture. Behind two different starting quarterbacks, one of three running backs or any one of multiple future NFL defenders popping off the screen, the Bulldogs push around every team in their path.

After years of close calls, disappointments and underachievement relative to expectations, Georgia has finally come together under coach Kirby Smart to be the undisputed top team in the Football Bowl Subdivision and the favorite for the national championship at the midpoint of the regular season.
