The final player Georgia football must limit is Byron Young, who is another top defender for Tennessee. He is one of the defensive front seven as he plays with his hand in the dirt or as a linebacker.
Young has seven tackles for loss this season and 3.5 sacks, which is second-best on the team. However, he does lead the Vols in quarterback hurries at seven, so Young knows how to put on the pressure.
Last week against Kentucky, he recorded two sacks and four tackles on the day. He also earned a sack and six tackles against Alabama.
Young is a veteran on this defense and someone who wants to beat Georgia badly. The Dawgs need to keep an eye out for No.6 because Tennessee will move him all over the field to try and confuse the offensive line.
Between Young and Banks, Georgia will have their hands full trying to give whoever plays quarterback enough time, but they are talented enough to do so. They just need to trust themselves.
Georgia football has the talent to beat the Volunteers, but will they go into Knoxville coasting, or will they suffocate Tennessee and remind the world why they are the unanimous No. 1 team in the country? Knowing head coach Kirby Smart and his staff, it’ll be the latter, and the Vols will get knocked down a few notches to remind them who runs the SEC East right now.
