Kentucky defense without S Dixon against Georgia after targeting call

Georgia lost two players — Ray Drew and Corey Moore — to ejections during games this season, but both came in the first half so it didn’t impact the next game.

Kentucky will still feel starting safety Eric Dixon’s targeting call from the fourth quarter of the loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday. Dixon must sit out the first half of Saturday’s game against Georgia for a helmet-to-helmet hit on receiver Jordan Matthews.

Sophomore Glenn Faulkner moves into starting safety role.

Dixon, a junior, is Kentucky’s third-leading tackler with 46 and has one forced fumble.
