Georgia Football is heading into week five of the college football season against arguably their toughest opponent of the year. If an SEC matchup isn’t enough to get you excited, Arkansas being ranked No. 8 in the nation should grab your full attention.
The Razorbacks will be Georgia’s second top 10 ranked opponent of the early season, and to be honest, there hasn’t been much to stress over since beating Clemson 10-3 the opening weekend. The Dawgs have handled their other three games with ease.
The Georgia defense has been everything fans expected them to be, if not more. The Dawgs lead the country in points allowed, holding opponents to an average of 5.8 points per game. They also lead the nation in yards allowed per week at 181.8. In addition, the defense has 14 sacks on the season and seven interceptions, two of which resulted in touchdowns.
While the Georgia offense has been more than impressive, we are yet to see the unit on the field at full strength for an entire game. Still, the Bulldogs are averaging 42 points per contest and 454.5 yards, with 177.3 of them coming on the ground. As a result, Georgia fans have every reason to wake up excited on Saturday mornings.
As great as the numbers look on paper for the Bulldogs, there’s still reason for concern this Saturday at noon. Arkansas has just as much to prove as Georgia does, if not more. They will be in a hostile environment, regardless of how early it is, and a 4-0 start and being ranked in the top 10 was something no realistic Hog fan expected at the start of the season.
So here are the three Razorbacks I believe Georgia players and fans alike will need to keep their eyes on.
