LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Terrence Edwards did a little bit of everything Saturday in Georgia's 34-30 win against Kentucky.
The sophomore from Tennille, who starred at Washington County, saw action at quarterback and split end in the 34-30 victory over the Wildcats.
Edwards, pressed into service because of Quincy Carter's injury, was primarily used as a running threat in third-down situations when he took the snaps.
He rushed three times for 11 yards, but was most valuable as a receiver. He had five catches for 61 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown that put Georgia ahead for good in the fourth quarter.
"It brought back my old high school days," Edwards said of playing quarterback. "I felt comfortable in there."
Edwards said he was impressed by Carter's replacement, Cory Phillips. The sophomore wasn't much of a running threat, but threw for four touchdowns against Kentucky, tying a school record.
The Bulldogs play Florida next week, but Edwards said Georgia wasn't looking past Kentucky. Now the Gators are the primary focus.
"We'll try to get Quincy healthy," he said. "If he's not, we've got Cory."
FRESHMAN RECORD: Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen established a Southeastern Conference record for most passing yards (2,710) in a season by a freshman in Saturday's game.
On the Wildcats' first play from scrimmage, Lorenzen found tight end Derek Smith for an 89-yard gain.
The previous record of 2,484 yards was set by Georgia's Carter in 1998, but Lorenzen shattered it with his 528-yard performance. He set school records for most passing yards in a single game and total offensive yards (525) in a single game.
Lorenzen was listed as questionable before the game with a thumb injury, which raised some eyebrows.
"If he did hurt his thumb, he needs to do it every Thursday," Georgia coach Jim Donnan said.
DEFENSE SHREDDED: Georgia came into Commonwealth Stadium with the SEC's top defense. It left bruised and battered, giving up 30 points and 620 total yards.
Lorenzen, Kentucky's left-handed quarterback, was effective on quick hits. Georgia also gave up numerous big plays, including touchdown passes of 86 and 75 yards.
Donnan said he was concerned about the number of his team's missed tackles.
Prior to Saturday, Georgia was tops in the conference in scoring defense, averaging 10.7 points per contest, and total defense, allowing just 268.3 total yards per game.
GROUNDED: Georgia's vaunted running attack never quite got off the ground against Kentucky.
The Bulldogs, who entered the game with an average of 152 yards per game on the ground, were held to 38 yards on 24 carries.
Georgia's longest run from scrimmage was 11 yards. Jasper Sanks led the Bulldogs with 19 yards on 11 carries.
SCOUTING REPORT: Representatives from the Nokia Sugar Bowl and OurHouse.com Florida Citrus Bowl were in attendance.
The Sugar Bowl is part of the Bowl Championship Series and will be played Jan. 2 in New Orleans. The Citrus Bowl, held on New Year's Day, matches the runner-ups from the SEC and the Big Ten.
With Kentucky ahead 13-10, the Sugar Bowl representatives did not return to their seats in the press box after halftime.
