Some pregame football notes as we congratulate the couple that entered into wedded bliss in the Blue Lot this afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Bryce Gill (Mrs. Pictured above). We at KSR certainly wish them the best and here’s to hoping the Cats can bring home a win on their special day.

First, let’s get the broadcast info for tonight’s game against Georgia. Here’s word from UK:

Though Insight Communications does not carry Comcast Sports, which is broadcasting this weekend’s UK-Georgia football game, Insight will make the game available to customers in select markets in Kentucky.

Here is a full rundown of channel assignments in each market:

**Add Channel 77 in Frankfort to the list.

I don’t think the game is available on DirecTV outside of ESPN Gameplan, or at least not on my DirecTV. However, if you’re like me, you’ll be glad to know that the game will be available on ESPN3.com.

That’s what we know right now. If anyone has more info on channels where the game can be seen, post it in the comments and I’ll update accordingly.

In addition, CatScratches, the official blog of UK, will be liveblogging the game.

Speaking of CatScratches, let’s venture over there to take a look at Joker Phillips’ keys to the game, which he goes over with the site each week and which hopefully the other teams don’t know about. Here’s a little of what Coach had to say about the Dawgs:

Defensive keys – Getting off to a faster start: “We may have to bring out our orange slices and those things to start faster. We’ve just got to continue to stress playing hard for 60 minutes. We’ve played great in the second half. I think the thing that has helped us in the last couple of games is, in the last five or six minutes of the second quarter, we’ve played pretty good and got some momentum on our side. We did the same thing by scoring against Auburn right before the half and got some momentum. This past week we got a huge play by our defense right before the half to keep them at 18 instead of them going up by 25. I think that gave us momentum in the second half.”

Joker’s biggest concern – Georgia receiver A.J. Green: “He’s big, fast and athletic. I know we’ve got a couple of big guys in this league, but he’s probably the biggest, most athletic guy in this league. … This guy has come in and just opened up really a whole new dimension to what they can do. Their running game has increased since he’s come back because you’ve got to account for him by putting a safety over the top of him at times. You can’t put as many people in the box. He’s done wonders for theme offensively. I think it’s opened up things for Tavarres King and (Kris) Durham. I think it’s opened up things for the tight end, and it’s definitely helped the quarterback. You get down on the goal line and you just throw it up to them. He’s in (the same category) with Alshon Jeffery and Julio Jones, and hopefully we can put Chris (Matthews) in that category soon.”

You can read the rest here to get yourself acquainted with how the Cats plan to handle Georgia. It’s almost gametime, folks. Go Big Blue.
