Kentucky vs. Georgia 2017 live stream: Time and how to watch online

The Bulldogs have to dispatch a feisty Kentucky team to keep their national title hopes alive.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Auburn John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Auburn derailed the No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs’ College Football Playoff hopes last week with a dominant win. On Saturday, the Kentucky Wildcats can make sure Georgia’s aspirations are lost forever. The two SEC East rivals meet at 3:30p.m. ET; the showdown will be broadcast live on CBS (live stream).

The Wildcats have emerged as the second-best team in the SEC East, a once-prestigious title that no longer carries much weight. Wins over Missouri, Tennessee, and South Carolina have showcased the team’s potent offense, but they’ll need a ragged defense to step up to topple the Bulldogs. Georgia boasts one of the country’s top offensive attacks between the tailback Cerberus of Nick Chubb, D’Andre Swift, and Sony Michel and the competent passing of freshman QB Jake Fromm.

Kentucky at Georgia news:

The Dawgs came at Auburn early and often with the same runs they’d used to ride roughshod over everyone else. The Tigers responded with their same hybrid nickel defense they’d used against most everyone else.

I witnessed one of the best quarterbacks in the program’s history ensure the first road winning record for Kentucky in nearly a decade, and record the highest win percentage of any Kentucky quarterback in modern history. Stephen Johnson will go down as one of the best signal callers to ever play in Lexington; not because of his numbers or his talent, but because of his poise, his leadership, his strength, and the fact that he is simply a winner.

I think we all thought a loss was possible, but there was no way we’d be blown out. Mark Richt is gone. The culture has changed. And Kirby would at least get us our money’s worth for those lofty ticket prices. Then that happened. And now we are all sitting around, befuddled and pissed off saying, “What the hell just happened?”

Vanderbilt had no answer for the talented back. Snell became the first running back in UK history to post 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.

With his second score — a two-yard run on a Wildcat keeper that occurred at the 12:57 mark of the third quarter — Snell became the school’s all-time leader in rushing touchdowns.

Is Snell the best SEC tailback no one is talking about?

The sophomore has been the engine behind the Kentucky offense, rushing for 1,013 yards and 15 touchdowns this fall. More importantly, he’s taken pressure off a lackluster passing game by being a workhorse; Snell has averaged more than 20 carries a game. In his last three games, all against SEC competition, he’s run for 472 yards and nine (!!) touchdowns. Now it’s time to see what he can do against a leveled-up Georgia defense.

Kentucky at Georgia prediction:

The Wildcats have the firepower to keep this game closer than past installments of the rivalry but ultimately can’t match up with a Bulldog team that will be out for blood after last week’s loss. Expect Georgia to pull away in the second half to keep its playoff hopes alive.
