ATHENS, GA - Two weeks into the season, Georgia appeared headed for another disappointing year.
Well, look where the Bulldogs are now. One win from celebrating a division championship.
After a dominating victory over Auburn, No. 13 Georgia merely needs to beat lowly Kentucky next Saturday to wrap up the Southeastern Conference East. That would send the Bulldogs into a likely matchup against No. 1 LSU for the league championship on Dec. 3 in Atlanta, a scenario that was definitely farfetched back in September when they started 0-2.
Considering the Bulldogs already were coming off their first losing year since 1996, the situation looked especially bleak. They haven't lost since, extending their winning streak to eight in a row with a 45-7 blowout of the defending national champions.
