There is something about the defense Georgia football puts on the field each week. They aren’t overly confident, but week after week, they make opponents look silly.
Even on an off week, they held Missouri to six points and didn’t give up a touchdown for the fourth time in nine games.
Teams have come into the week averaging 30-plus points just for Georgia to take away their offense like a bully stealing candy from a child.
The next team to face off with Georgia is Tennessee, and much like Kentucky, Arkansas, Auburn, and maybe even Florida, they have a ton of confidence in their offense.
Georgia football has the best defense, and there are three things they do to stay that way.
Tennessee averages 38 points a game and 457.7 yards of total offense, so they feel like Saturday will be a prime opportunity for them to upset the No.1 team in the nation. However, as the last nine games have shown Georgia’s opponents, that isn’t going to happen.
The Dawgs have given up 59 total points all year, which means opponents average about 6.6 points a game.
This point total is the lowest since FSU’s defense did it in 1992.
There is something special about this group, and an explosive Tennessee team isn’t going to break that momentum. Instead, the Dawgs should handle their business and leave Knoxville 10-0.
Tennessee will have to get knocked down a few notches because they’ve been able to be explosive and find some success the last few weeks.
Georgia will hopefully knock the Vols back down to reality on Saturday, and to do that, they must do these three things.
