The Georgia Bulldogs are 4-4 and have just four games left in the regular season.

The Bulldogs have usually already clinched it by now, it's just a matter of where in Florida they'll play.

This year, it could come down to the final game against Georgia Tech for Georgia to reach six wins. Both the Bulldogs and the Yellow Jackets could go into the Clean, Old Fashion Hate rivalry with five wins, winner goes to a bowl.

Wouldn't that be something?

But let's not get too far ahead. This week, the Bulldogs face the Kentucky Wildcats, who have won three in a row, and the Bulldogs are favored by just 2.5 points as of Monday. The beginning of the Kirby Smart era has been shaky, and if the Bulldogs don't go to a bowl, uh oh.

The last time Georgia was not bowl eligible was 1996 under Jim Donnan in his first season.

"To be honest with you, I'm not even thinking about it," Smart said on bowl eligibility. "My soul purpose is on Kentucky, giving these kids an opportunity to go play and have success in this game. That's really what we're thinking about."

Sophomore receiver Michael Chigbu said bowl eligibility has not even crossed his mind this season.

"This is my first time talking about the bowl. We're not worried about the bowl. We're worried about Kentucky right now. It's on to the next game. We're focused on this week," he said.

"The record doesn't define us. Us winning four games, us losing four games, that doesn't define us. I promise, we're better than what y'all think we are. We work hard in practice. We give it our all, we're here for each other."

Senior linebacker Chuks Amaechi said he knows the Bulldogs' current losing streak is tough, but pleaded for fans to stick with them.

"They have to have our backs, no matter what. Whether we're 0-12, 12-0, 4-4. They've been fans of the Georgia Bulldogs since before they could talk. There's no reason for them to back off of us now. Sometimes we have bumps in the road, but we'll get back on the right foot."

There's talk amongst the players that they don't want Kentucky to become bowl eligible against them this Saturday. But the Wildcats are looking to do just that after the Bulldogs earned their 19th consecutive bowl bid against them last season.
