Kentucky is off to a 6-0 start this season, their best start since the 1950 season (10-0).

The Wildcats climbed to No. 11 in both the AP and Coaches Polls Sunday, setting up a matchup vs. No. 1 Georgia in Athens Saturday.

Kentucky’s race to 6-0 and 42-21 victory vs. LSU last weekend was led by quarterback Will Levis, who had one of the best overall stat lines by an SEC quarterback in the last 21 years.

Levis completed 14-of-17 passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns. Additionally, Levis rushed 11 times for 75 yards, adding two touchdowns on the ground.

According to Corey Price, the UK quarterback is the fifth different SEC quarterback since 2000 to have 145 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, 75 rushing yards, and two rushing touchdowns in an SEC victory.

Levis is also the only quarterback since 2000 to have three touchdowns passing and two rushing vs. LSU.

Levis was named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week for his performance.
