Only one game takes place on Week 7 of the college football schedule between undefeated, ranked teams: No. 11 Kentucky at No. 1 Georgia.
Just like everyone predicted before the season.
The Bulldogs enter Saturday’s game as the clear No. 1 team in the country after Alabama’s stunning loss to unranked Texas A&M on the road in Week 6, but their play has been indicative of an elite team all season.
That’s especially true on defense, which leads the FBS in three major statistical categories: scoring defense (5.5 points per game); total defense (201.2 yards per game); and passing defense (137.0 yards per game). The Bulldogs also rank fourth nationally and first in the SEC by surrendering 64.2 yards per game on the ground.

The Wildcats are a long shot to beat Georgia in Sanford Stadium on Saturday, but come in boasting an unexpected 6-0 record, including a massive upset over then-No. 20 Florida in Lexington. Kentucky hasn’t been nearly as dominant as its black and red opponent, but scratched out four straight wins of one possession before blowing LSU out of the water 42-21 in Week 6.
The offense gave Georgia something to think about in the win, as quarterback Will Levis turned in an efficient 14-of-17 passing day for 145 yards and three scores. Running backs Christopher Rodriguez Jr. and Kavosiey Smoke rushed for 147 and 104 yards, respectively, as well.
Can Kentucky pull off another upset, or will Georgia make a victim of a fourth ranked opponent this year? WIth that, Sporting News breaks down how to watch the undefeated SEC East matchup between Georgia and Kentucky in Athens, Ga:
