Georgia football holds the Gators rush attack to 100 or fewer yards

Georgia football’s defense lives and dies on stopping the run. Opponents average just 63.4 yards on the ground against them, and the Gators could see a similar fate on Saturday.

Even though Florida averages 254.3 rushing yards a game, they haven’t played a front seven with the likes of Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt, Nolan Smith, and Travon Walker on it. These guys love suffocating opposing rush attacks, and so far this season, they’ve done an excellent job of it.

Georgia has given up just one run over 20-yards all season long, and they don’t expect to give up one to the Gators on Saturday.

Making the Gators one-dimensional could force them to make more mistakes, which the Dawgs will execute off of them. If Georgia plays as good as they have been, the savage pads could get used a lot on Saturday, and it won’t be for just interceptions, but fumbles as well.

Davis needs to embarrass the Gators’ offensive line and show them what they missed last year. The Gators better be ready because the horizontal speed this defense has is unmatchable. Not to mention they are so disciplined in their actions, Florida better get creative.

Even if the Gators get creative, their offensive line hasn’t seen the force of this defensive front. Who knows, the Dawgs could have a heyday in the backfield and tack on a few more sacks to the season total.

Havoc plays will help here because they will eliminate any confidence the Gators have, and if the Dawgs can suffocate them, Florida will bow down and hit a wall.
