Georgia Vs. Kentucky: Mark Richt focused only on Wildcats

Kevin C. Cox

Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt said he won't be paying attention to the Florida-South Carolina game on Saturday and is focused 100 percent on the Kentucky Wildcats, according to a report in the Athens Banner-Herald.

"We know we've got to focus on our business, or [the Florida-South Carolina game] won't mean anything" Richt told the Banner-Herald. "I don't really worry too much about it. What I am not doing is focusing on it. I'm not going to sit there and have that game become a distraction to the preparation for our game."

Even though Richt might not be paying attention, fans of the Bulldogs certainly will be due to the game's impact on the SEC's standings. If Florida tops South Carolina, Georgia could once again control its own destiny to win the SEC East by beating the Gators on Oct. 27. If South Carolina wins, though, the Gamecocks would hold the inside track to winning the division.

Florida vs. South Carolina is set for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff, while Georgia's game against Kentucky is scheduled to get underway at 7 p.m. ET.
