Georgia football must force turnovers on defense
Florida utilizes two quarterbacks in Emory Jones and Anthony Richardson.
They both can throw the ball and have had to use their legs to make plays happen.
Combined, these two have 12 interceptions on the year. Jones completed 119-of-176 for 1,305 yards, 10 touchdowns and nine picks — yes, one fewer turnover than scores.
While he completes 67.6% of his passes, having nine interceptions through seven games isn’t a good look. He also leads the team rushing-wise as he has 85 rushes for 494 yards and two touchdowns.
As for Richardson, he has 28 carries for 348 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 12.4 yards a touch. Through the air, he has completed 21-of-37 for 392 yards, five touchdowns and three picks.
Georgia’s secondary needs to be ready on Saturday because there will be a golden opportunity to don the turnover pads between these two quarterbacks.
Kelee Ringo, Lewis Cine, Chris Smith, and the rest of the guys back there need to keep their eyes peeled because statistics show it’s bound to happen. Jones averages 1.2 interceptions a game, meaning it could be a big game for the back end of the Dawgs defense.
Florida will have to depend on their passing game, and this group will be one of the toughest units they have faced thus far in the season.
It could be a record-breaking game if the Dawgs play their cards right. Winning the turnover battle is key in this rivalry game, and Georgia is overdue for more turnovers.
