With a huge matchup against Florida looming on the horizon, the Georgia Bulldogs must first take care of business against Kentucky. The Bulldogs travel to Commonwealth Stadium to face the Wildcats Saturday at 7 p.m. ET.

Georgia, ranked 11th in the initial BCS rankings, is coming off a bye and playing its first game since an embarrassing 35-7 defeat at South Carolina. Another conference loss would all but eliminate the Bulldogs from SEC East contention. Fortunately for Mark Richt's team, it matches up well against Kentucky. The Bulldogs are averaging 41.3 points per game, second in the SEC, while the Wildcats give up 32.9 points per game, which ranks last in the conference.

Georgia Tech aims to end a three-game losing streak on Saturday when the Yellow Jackets host Boston College at 3:30 p.m. ET. Tech is coming off losses to Miami, Middle Tennessee and Clemson, and has been outscored by an average of 14 points during the losing skid.

Georgia State plays its Homecoming game against Villanova Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET. Georgia Southern hits the road to play Furman at 1:30 p.m. ET.
