Kentucky Vs. Georgia Final Score: Bulldogs Clinch SEC East With Ugly Win

They don't judge style points when handing out the SEC East title -- which is good for Georgia, because the Bulldogs didn't earn many in their victory against Kentucky. Instead, the new division champions survived an ugly 19-10 win to clinch a trip to the Georgia Dome for the SEC Championship Game.

And the Dawgs didn't exactly give the SEC West leader a lot to fear in a game against one of college football's worst teams. They trailed Kentucky 10-6 at one point, and held a 12-10 halftime lead only because of a Kentucky fumble. Georgia managed 317 yards of offense and had just one touchdown -- a seven-yard pass from Aaron Murray to Marlon Brown -- and seemed to be largely sleepwalking through the game. Overall, Murray was 16-of-29 for 162 yard, a touchdown and an interception.

Brandon Harton led the Bulldogs on the ground, churning out 101 yards on 23 carries.

For Kentucky, the story was largely one of turnovers -- two fumbles and a pair of interceptions that helped destroy their chances of pulling the shocker. Even when they were holding onto the ball, the Wildcats could generate just 165 yards of offense and 10 first downs. The loss officially ends Kentucky's hopes of going to a bowl game, breaking a five-year streak of postseason appearances.
