Cats Battle, But Fall Short In Athens
11/19/2011 07:38 PM
After getting pounded in Nashville by Vanderbilt last week, the Kentucky football team entered their game with the Georgia Bulldogs as 31-point underdogs. But unlike their game with the Commodores last week, Kentucky came out fighting and gave the SEC East leaders all they could handle before finally falling 19-10.
The Cats held Georgia’s explosive offense to four field goals before Aaron Murray found a wide-open Marlon Brown in the end zone at the start of the fourth quarter. UK’s lone touchdown came on a two-yard pass to Tyler Robinson from freshman quarterback Maxwell Smith, who finished the game 17/34 for 133 yards and two interceptions to go with his one touchdown pass.
The Cats, now officially eliminated from bowl contention, will prepare for another shot at breaking their 26-year losing streak to Tennessee next week.
Stay tuned to KSTV all week to hear what Joker and his team are saying as they prepare for the Vols.
