Dawgs defense holds Florida to zero explosive plays
The only team who will see explosive plays on Saturday starts with a G and ends with an A — yes, Georgia.
Georgia has the best defense Florida will have seen thus far, and if the Dawgs can do their thing, the Gators won’t be able to pull off any explosive plays.
Florida has 34 explosive plays on the season, which is either a 20-plus yard run or a 30-plus yard pass. However, one team didn’t allow the Gators any momentum-swinging plays, and that was Kentucky.
Well, Georgia beat the Wildcats by 17 points, and Kentucky beat Florida by seven points, so if the Dawgs can find offensive production against Florida and eliminate explosive plays, it’ll get ugly fast.
When the Gators have more than four big plays against an opponent, they usually win the ballgame. The Dawgs’ best bet is to lock down the wideouts and be ready for Emory Jones to try and make a play with his legs. This challenge may seem hard to do, but Florida’s ability to execute explosive plays has decreased as the season progressed.
Georgia needs to play their game on Saturday. They need to go out there and play like it is the final game of the season, or the SEC East is on the line. The Dawgs need to make a statement and forget about the past. Despite this rivalry being lopsided since 2000, it’s time for a trend change, and Georgia is in the driver’s seat.
The Dawgs will still be undefeated Saturday evening, after demolishing the Gators 42-7, as Georgia will hand-deliver Florida their fourth loss on the year.
