6: Stetson Bennett throws for at least 200 yards and three touchdowns
This prediction may not be bold because we saw him light up UAB, but this Auburn team is better than the Blazers. Last week Stetson Bennett only threw for 72 yards, but that is all the Dawgs needed from him. No need to force more throws when you’re able to run the ball the way they did.
However, Auburn seems to think if they can load the box and stop the run, Georgia will fall apart. The Tigers must have only watched the Arkansas film because the Dawgs have passed better this year than they have run.
Georgia will need Bennett to be a sharpshooter against the Tigers’ secondary and avoid any costly mistakes. If JT Daniels can go, then Georgia’s pass attack will be just fine, but with Bennett, he can get wild, so Georgia needs him to be spot on this week.
Last year, Bennett went 17-of-28 for 240 yards and one score against the Tigers, and this year those numbers should look the same if not better.
So many Georgia fans don’t trust him, but he earned this spot and should be trusted. Bennett will prove he can handle the duties of starting quarterback with Daniels out just like he did last year against Auburn.
He wants to win so bad for Georgia and help the team do whatever it takes to make that happen. Whether it’s as an explosive thrower or a game manager — Bennett will make it happen and do it in a big way this week.
