ATHENS - Dawg Post has all the news and notes from Georgia’s massive 51-13 blowout victory over Kentucky.

*Extending The Streaks: With tonight’s 51-13 win over No. 20 Kentucky, top-ranked Georgia (6-0, 3-0 SEC) has extended its school record for consecutive victories now to 23. The streak began during the 2021 season (Dec. 31) when the Bulldogs beat #2 Michigan 34-11 in a CFP semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl. This streak ranks tied for the fourth longest in SEC history (UT won 23 straight from 1937-39).

*Georgia now has won 23 consecutive home games which ranks second in school history behind a 24-game home winning streak from 1980-83. The current home streak began with a 21-0 shutout of Kentucky on Oct. 19, 2019.

*The Bulldogs extended their school record for consecutive regular season wins to 33, which leads all of FBS. This streak began during the 2020 season with a 31-24 win over Miss. State. on Nov. 21.

*Georgia now has won 22 regular season SEC games in a row dating to a 31-24 win over Miss. State on Nov. 21, 2020. The school record is 23, set during a stretch from 1980-83. The 22-game streak ranks tied for fourth in SEC history.

*Georgia improves to 6-0 for the fifth time in the Kirby Smart era (now 87-15 overall), joining the 2017, 2018, 2021 and 2022 clubs.

*With the latest victory over UK, Georgia now holds a 63-12-2 edge in the series history including winning the past 14 meetings. It’s the longest streak of success in the series. Tonight was the first time since 2021 when it was a matchup of ranked teams.

Murray went for 323 against Clemson, 309 versus South Carolina and 408 against North Texas to start that season.
