UK FOOTBALL | Wildcats Get Momentum As Match-Up at No. 1 UGA Looms

11/13/2017 06:59 PM

The UK football team is getting ready for arguably its toughest test of the year as it gets ready to face No. 1 Georgia this Saturday in Athens, Ga.

Kickoff on Saturday is set for 3:30 p.m. ET.

The Wildcats (7-3, 4-3) are coming off a 44-21 win over Vanderbilt (4-6, 0-6) this past weekend in Nashville, Tn.

The Bulldogs (9-1, 6-1) on the other hand are coming off their first loss of the season, after falling at No. 10 Auburn this past weekend. The loss will likely drop Georgia in the new College Football Playoff rankings when they are revealed on Tuesday.
