Kenny McIntosh powers Georgia football offense in win over Kentucky: ‘Spark that momentum’

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Based on how Kenny McIntosh was running on Saturday, you wouldn’t know that he was a South Florida native. The Georgia running back looked downright cozy churning through Kentucky defenders.

But as a shivering McIntosh spoke to reporters after the game, he was very much not in his preferred element. The temperature never climbed higher than 37 degrees and winds gusted as high as 25 miles per hour at Kroger Field.

That limited Georgia’s passing offense, as Stetson Bennett completed just 13 of his 19 pass attempts for a season-low 116 yards. McIntosh, a major weapon for Georgia in that regard, caught only two passes for 19 yards.

For once, it was the ground game where McIntosh made the biggest difference. On a career-high 19 carries, McIntosh ran for 143 yards against the Wildcats.

It was the best rushing effort of his career.
