ATHENS, Ga., Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Freshman David Greene passes for 364 yards and three scores and Fred Gibson set a school record with 201 receiving yards Saturday to lead 19th-ranked Georgia to a wild 43-29 Southeastern Conference win over Kentucky.
Musa Smith, Georgia's leading rusher, missed the game with a hip flexor and the Bulldogs missed him early. Kentucky's Jared Lorenzen threw three touchdown passes in a four-minute span of the second quarter to give the Wildcats a 22-7 lead.
But Georgia (5-1, 4-1 SEC East) outscored Kentucky the rest of the way, 36-7, to post their 12th straight home win over the Wilcats.
Lorenzen completed 32 of 54 passes for 377 yards and was intercepted twice. But Kentucky (1-6, 0-5) has lost 14 straight SEC games.
Filling the void behind Greene was fullback Verron Haynes, who carried 14 times for 86 yards and two scores.
Early in the fourth quarter, Greene and Haynes combined on a 46-yard screen pass before connecting seconds later on a four-yard touchdown pass that made it 43-29.
Greene completed 22 of 36 passes, including a 57-yard touchdown strike to Gibson that put the Wildcats ahead to stay at 36-29 early in the fourth quarter.
Gibson, who also grabbed a 68-yard touchdown pass near the end of the first half, caught nine passes. His 201 yards broke the school record of 198 set by Lamar Davis against Cincinnati in 1942.
