1: Dawgs earn third straight SEC shutout
The boldest prediction of them all has to be Georgia shutting out their third straight SEC opponent.
For the first time since 1980, Georgia shut out back-to-back opponents, but I don’t see Auburn scoring with how this defense is playing regardless of whether it’s first, second or third string out there. Georgia needs to come out swinging against the Tigers — punch them in the mouth and make them remember the day they faced this defense. Teams don’t realize how dominant Georgia’s defense is until they physically play them, and when they do, it usually shocks them.
The Dawgs don’t want teams in their endzone. Nolan Smith let the world know that, and we saw what they did to an Arkansas team who laughed at it.
Georgia has made it a point to keep teams out of their endzone, and so far, it’s worked as the Dawgs have given up one passing touchdown through five games.
With this game being a rivalry, Georgia will have even more reason to keep them out of their endzone. It’s an away game in one of the toughest atmospheres in the SEC. If the Dawgs can shut them out at home, that’ll be quite the statement.
Georgia and Auburn kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS Saturday afternoon, as the Dawgs look to prove to yet another team why they are one of the best in the country.
