Jalen Whitlow suffered a stinger, Jojo Kemp was carried off the field, and Kentucky’s performance reflected the attrition on the field. The Georgia Bulldogs topped Kentucky 59-17 in Athens, Ga., on Saturday night.


The Wildcats (2-9, 0-7) lost all four of their SEC road games in their first season under head coach Mark Stoops and will finish up their 2013 schedule on Nov. 30 at home against Tennessee.


Kentucky has now lost 15 straight SEC games, with its last win coming over Tennessee on Nov. 26, 2011.


Starters Demarco Robinson (wide receiver) and Cody Quinn (cornerback), and prominent reserve Jason Hatcher (defensive end) did not play after Stoops announced suspensions for each earlier in the week for violations of team rules. Quinn and Hatcher were both suspended for the Georgia game, and Robinson was suspended indefinitely.


Georgia (7-4, 5-3) finished its SEC schedule above .500 with the win, and it will finish out its regular season with a chance at eight wins next week against Georgia Tech.


The Bulldogs finished with 602 yards of total offense, nearly tripling Kentucky’s 211.
