J.J. Weaver delights in rematch after tearing ACL at Florida last year

J.J. Weaver took this year’s Florida game personally. The sophomore linebacker tore an ACL during UK’s 34-10 loss at Florida last November. He’s not yet at 100 percent, but he has seen an uptick in snaps over the last few weeks and has been the Wildcats’ best pass rusher. He had a quarterback hurry to go along with four tackles and an interception, which led to Kentucky’s final touchdown in a 20-13 victory over the Gators.

Georgia vs. Kentucky odds, line, spread: College football picks, Week 7 predictions from model on 19-7 run

The top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs won't take anything for granted on Saturday when they host the 11th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats in an SEC on CBS matchup at Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs (6-0) have been dominant on defense. Stetson Bennett has filled in well for JT Daniels, who could miss another game with a back injury, but with opponents scoring just 5.5 points per game, the signal-caller has been mostly an afterthought. The Wildcats (6-0) have lost 11 straight games to the Bulldogs but come in on a high after consecutive wins against Florida and LSU. And UK has a solid defense of its own and a powerful running game that the Bulldogs will have to deal with.
