Greyson returns at QB as Georgia runs past Kentucky, 27-3
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Greyson Lambert made a successful return as Georgia's quarterback, even though he had to share the fun, and the Bulldogs beat Kentucky 27-3 on Saturday, giving the Wildcats their fourth straight loss.
Sony Michel led Georgia's productive running game with 24 carries for 165 yards and a touchdown.
Lambert was on the field for all of Georgia's scoring drives. Brice Ramsey played behind Lambert. Running back Michel and wide receiver Terry Godwin also took snaps in wildcat formations.
Godwin recovered his own fumble and then took off on a 28-yard scoring run for Georgia's first touchdown.
Michel had a 1-yard touchdown run for Georgia (6-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference). It was an important win for coach Mark Richt, who faced increased pressure after the Bulldogs lost three of four games.
Kentucky (4-5, 2-5 SEC) was hurt by three turnovers, including Patrick Towles' two interceptions. The Wildcats managed only 180 total yards.
