McShay's updated Top 32: Roquan Smith on the rise

Even with all of the speed on Georgia's defense, Smith stands out. He has only one sack and 4.5 tackles for loss on the season, but his potential far outweighs those numbers.

FPI: Bulldogs heavy favorites vs. Wildcats

Georgia has won seven straight and 18 of the last 20 meetings against Kentucky. The Wildcats' last victory came in 2009 in Athens, the only time they've won there in the past 40 years. ESPN's FPI is leaning in the Bulldogs' direction for Saturday's matchup.

Stats & Info

Chubb running toward history

Nick Chubb needs 106 rushing yards to join Herschel Walker as the only Georgia players to have three seasons with 1,000 yards on the ground. Last week, Chubb passed Bo Jackson on the all-time SEC rushing list despite being held to a season-low 27 yards in the loss to Auburn. He's historically fared well against his next opponent, Kentucky.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Whether it's No. 1 Alabama, No. 6 Auburn or No. 7 Georgia, the equation for the SEC's playoff contenders is simple: win out and you're in. Georgia's 23-point loss at Auburn last weekend makes two SEC teams reaching the playoff all but impossible.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Alabama is back in a familiar spot: No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings. With No. 6 Auburn in two weeks and, potentially, No. 7 Georgia in the SEC Championship Game a week later, winning out would all but assure the Crimson Tide the one-seed.
