Georgia did indeed take the Silver Ball from Kentucky, a 44 to 31 result ending the Wildcats' first ever time as champion with ruthless speed. Georgia takes the Ball home for the 25th time, and sports a phenomenal 25-11 record in Silver Ball matches.
The title has now changed hands in three straight games for the first time since 2003. With Georgia taking on Florida next week, a fourth straight has to be a strong possibility - that would be the first time since the 1990 season, when Washington, UCLA, USC, and Notre Dame all failed to hang on to the Silver Ball, and Colorado eventually won it at the Orange Bowl. Champs went just 6-7 that season in Silver Ball games - ugly.
