The Georgia Bulldogs have lost three of the last four games, seeing its preseason favorite status dwindle down to a possible third-place finish in the SEC East this season (remember, Tennessee has a head-to-head tiebreaker against the Bulldogs). Knowing there is little time to waste now, Georgia head coach Mark Richt says Greyson Lambert will get the start at quarterback today against Kentucky, but others should be expected to see some playing time as well.
This season, the transfer from Virginia has completed 64.1 percent of his pass attempts for 1,276 yards and nine touchdowns, with two interceptions thrown. In Lambert’s last start, against Missouri, he completed 71.9 percent of his passes for 178 yards, but the Bulldogs managed to score juts nine points in a tight 9-6 victory.
Lambert had been Georgia’s starter for the first seven games of the season, but he was replaced in the starting lineup by Faton Bauta last week in Jacksonville against the Florida Gators. Bauta completed 15 of his 33 pass attempts for 154 yards and he was picked off four times in the 27-3 loss.
