Rushing offense: C
Tavarres King had a career-high 9 catches for a game-high 188 yards and tied his career high with two TDs
What went right: Todd Gurley made good headway in the first quarter.
What went wrong: The good start on the ground didn’t last.
Bottom line: Georgia didn’t established dominance up front, which meant Georgia had to throw. That turned out to be a better matchup.
Passing offense: A-
What went right: Aaron Murray had a career night with a career-high 427 yards and broke David Greene’s all-time touchdown record.
What went wrong: Murray got sacked three times.
Bottom line: This was a good way to make up for deficiencies in the running game.
Rushing defense: C
What went right: Georgia made some second-half adjustments to slow down Kentucky.
What went wrong: Kentucky gashed Georgia for 137 yards in the first half, its third-highest total for a game this season.
Bottom line: Giving up 206 yards to the worst rushing offense in the SEC is ominous going into the Florida game.
Passing defense: C+
What went right: Georgia allowed just 110 passing yards in the game.
What went wrong: But 33 yards came on one play and helped set up a first-half Kentucky touchdown.
Bottom line: Jarvis Jones didn’t play and Abry Jones went out in the first quarter. Not surprisingly, Georgia struggled.
Special teams: C+
What went right: Marshall Morgan banked in a 26-yard field goal to end the first half and Connor Norman jumped on Kentucky’s last-gasp onside kick attempt.
What went wrong: Morgan shanked an extra point and Malcolm Mitchell fumbled on a kickoff return, but the worst error was the illegal procedure that called back a converted fake punt in the second half.
Bottom line: Georgia made mistakes but none were bad enough to cost the game against 1-7 Kentucky.
What went right: Georgia didn’t get rattled when Kentucky jumped out to a quick lead.
What went wrong: Georgia served up 45 yards on three personal foul penalties in the second half.
Bottom line: Georgia could afford sluggishness against Kentucky. That won’t be the case against Florida next week.
