Kentucky will be an underdog Saturday against Georgia at home despite playing for the SEC East division.

The Wildcats won a thriller on the road against Missouri literally with no time left, thanks to a pass interference penalty on Missouri in the end zone. It was a game that the Wildcats had to win in order to set up a huge game against Georgia.

Now, Georgia will travel to Lexington, and the winner advances to the SEC Championship Game in December.

Paul Finebaum hopped on SportsCenter to discuss the matchup, and he made an early pick.

“I’m not optimistic, but Kentucky being at home has momentum,” Finebaum said. “This is going to be the biggest football game in Kentucky history. That’s not saying very much. It’s going to overshadow the Duke-Kentucky basketball game a couple of nights later, but this place will be insane.

“Give Kentucky credit. Their offense takes some getting used to, but they went on the road and lost in overtime to Texas A&M and they pulled out the game they had to win (Missouri). It’s all about Saturday. It’s going to be a celebration. Do I think they’re going to win? Probably not.”

It’ll be interesting to see how many folks actually pick Kentucky to win Saturday against Georgia. We’re guessing it won’t be many, which gives Kentucky even more fuel to pull the upset.
