LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct. 26 (UPI) -- David Greene and D. J. Shockley combined to throw a team-record six touchdown passes and Terrence Edwards set another receiving record Saturday as the fifth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs remained unbeaten with a 52-24 rout of Kentucky.
Georgia was without running back Musa Smith and wide receiver Fred Gibson, who underwent had surgery last Tuesday. Tony Milton, a redshirt-freshman, made his first career start at tailback and gained 78 yards on 18 carries.
With their ground game on the sidelines, the Bulldogs took to the air as Greene was 16 of 32 for 251 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. Shockley, Greene's backup, was 10 of 14 for 102 yards, two scores and one interception.
By recording its highest point total of the season, Georgia (8-0, 5-0 SEC East) earned its first 8-0 start since 1982, when the Herschel Walker-led Bulldogs finished the regular season undefeated and lost to No. 2 Penn State in the Sugar Bowl.
As the only team in the SEC East with fewer than two losses, Georgia is in command of the division and can clinch a berth in the SEC title game with a victory Florida next week.
Edwards, who had more balls thrown his way in the absence of Gibson, hauled in five passes for 127 yards and three scores. He set a Georgia record for career receptions with 184, passing Brice Hunter, who had 182 from 1992-1995.
The Bulldogs were trailing, 24-21, after two quarters but opened the second half with three touchdown drives. They have won six straight against the Wildcats to increase their lead in the all-time series to 44-10-2.
Jared Lorenzen was 13 of 27 for 208 yards and a touchdown, but Artose Pinner was held to just 11 yards on 19 carries and a score for Kentucky (5-3, 1-3).
The Wildcats need to win two of their remaining four games to clinch a winning season for the first time since 1998.
