1 Kick Return Touchdown, 1 Punt Return Touchdown, 187 All-Purpose Yards

Well, we can give the Georgia Bulldogs, Mark Richt, Hutson Mason, Nick Chubb, and the defense loads of credit for rebounding after such a bad loss to the Florida Gators last week. But the bulk of the credit goes to the one player who put up incredibly unlikely numbers.

It’s not to often you have a wide receiver rack up 187 yards, none of which were receiving yards. And yes, Georgia did put up 63 points and was going to win in a blowout no matter what. But when you have two return touchdowns in a game, you have to be on this list, so we are going to acknowledge Isaiah McKenzie for what he did.

That is particularly true when you are playing in a road SEC game against a good team and desperately need a rebound win. Kentucky was no pushover, but Georgia simply went in and dominated them.

We still have to criticize these guys for laying an egg against Florida in a season that has been made for them, but it wasn’t easy to come through with such a great rebound win mentally. And they did it in blowout fashion, largely thanks to McKenzie.
