Kentucky Vs. Georgia Final: The Bulldogs Win Ugly 19-10, SEC Championship Ticket Punched

The great philiosopher Vin Diesel once said in The Fast and the Furious that, "It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning." A win was the only requirement that the Georgia Bulldogs had on Saturday, and with their 19-10 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats Mark Richt are officially in the 2011 SEC Championship game in Atlanta.

Things didn't look so good early, as on the second rushing play of the game freshman superstar tailback Isaiah Crowell had his ankle rolled up on by a defender and did not return. The wind seemed to be out of the sails for the Bulldogs afterwards, because Georgia could only muster four Blair Walsh field goals in the first half for a 12-10 lead.

An Aaron Murray touchdown pass to Marlon Brown from 7 yards out early in the fourth quarter pushed the 'Dawgs advantage to 19-10, and that would be the final score. Both defenses stymied their opposition, as each team forced four turnovers. However, Brandon Harton stepped up admirably in place of Crowell to rush for 101 yards and help keep key drives alive for the Bulldogs.

Now its time to begin thinking about an SEC Championship, praise the heavens that the Georgia administration didn't fire that head coach now....right?
