Georgia Bulldogs Vs. Kentucky Wildcats: Series History

Georgia leads, 49-12-2. Kentucky won their first meeting, 13-6, in Wally Butts' first year as Georgia's coach.

Mark Richt is 7-2 against Kentucky. As Dawg Sports' Kyle King notes, that's even better than it seems:

Wally Butts, Johnny Griffith, Vince Dooley, Ray Goff, and Jim Donnan all failed to begin their respective Georgia head coaching careers by going 2-0 against Kentucky, while Coach Richt won his first five against the Blue and White. 

The series' longest winning streak was ten games, starting in 1978, with Dooley closing out his career by beating the 'Cats nine times in a row before Goff went 2-2 in his first four years. Donnan and Richt combined to put together a nine-game streak of their own ending in 2006. That drought-buster resulted in this:

Here's the funnest fact of all, for Georgia fans: Kentucky hasn't beaten Georgia in consecutive meetings since they won in 1949 and 1956, with no games played between.
