ATHENS, Ga. -- Greyson Lambert made a successful return as Georgia's quarterback and the Bulldogs beat Kentucky 27-3 on Saturday.
Sony Michel led Georgia's productive running game with 24 carries for 165 yards and a touchdown.
Godwin recovered his own fumble and then took off on a 28-yard scoring run for Georgia's first touchdown.
Michel had a 1-yard touchdown run for Georgia (6-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference). It was an important win for coach Mark Richt, who faced increased pressure after the Bulldogs lost three of four games.
Kentucky (4-5, 2-5 SEC) was hurt by three turnovers, including Patrick Towles' two interceptions. The Wildcats managed only 180 total yards.
Towles completed only 8 of 21 passes for 96 yards with the two interceptions. Drew Barker replaced Towles in the fourth quarter.
Georgia ran for a season-high 300 yards. Keith Marshall had 13 carries for 60 yards and a 10-yard touchdown catch. Seven Georgia players had carries.
Lambert completed 6 of 13 passes for 64 yards with one touchdown.
Richt turned back to Lambert after a failed experiment with Faton Bauta, who threw four interceptions as the starter in last week's 27-3 loss to Florida.
Lambert led the Bulldogs to a 10-0 lead before Ramsey entered the game for a possession late in the opening quarter. Ramsey ran the offense for two possessions, including one that ended with a lost fumble following a catch by Isaiah McKenzie.
Then it was back to Lambert, who led two third-quarter touchdown drives as Georgia stretched its lead to 24-3.
Ramsey completed 4 of 6 passes for 26 yards.
A rainy Saturday morning and the forecast for more rain contributed to several thousand empty seats.
Leading 27-3, Georgia ran the ball on a fourth-and-15 play from the Kentucky 20 with about a minute remaining instead of attempting a field goal.
