We’ve now hit the pothole of the 2021 season previews. Kentucky’s 7th game, and 2nd road game, of the season is a trip to Athens against the big, bad Georgia Bulldogs.

Things don’t look good for Kentucky here. They’ve lost 11 in a row against Georgia and 22 of the past 24 meetings. They’ve only won in Athens four times, and under Stoops haven’t lost by less than 21 points when facing them on the road.

Plus, Georgia is heavily favored to contend for a CFP playoff berth and easily win the SEC East. Does Kentucky have any hope of defeating the Bulldogs and snapping their losing streak?

One stat stands out—in 2017 they lost by 29 on the road to Georgia, but in 2018 only lost by 17. In 2019, they got shut out 21-0, but only lost 14-3 in 2020. That’s right—they held Georgia to just 14 points last year. Is UK closing the gap? It seems like it, but they might have a little ways to go.
