Georgia to host Kentucky for 2019 homecoming weekend
Homecoming could be especially sweet for Georgia next season.
The Bulldogs are set to host Kentucky next season on Saturday, Oct. 19 and according to the Alumni Association of Georgia, that game has been scheduled as the school’s next homecoming weekend. When these two programs met last season, it was a showdown of top 10 teams for the right to represent the SEC East in Atlanta for the 2018 SEC Championship Game.
The Bulldogs went on to win in convincing fashion, 34-17 in Lexington, which not only punched their ticket to the league title game but it extended the program’s win streak to nine in the annual meeting between the SEC East schools. If Georgia beats Kentucky in 2019, the streak would extend to 10, which would tie the longest streak the Bulldogs have ever had against the Wildcats.
Georgia beat Kentucky every season between 1978 to 1987. The Wildcats beat Georgia in 1988 and 1990 but have only won three times since the 1991 matchup between the two programs (in 1996, 2006 and 2009).
