Georgia football stops the Tennessee rush attack
Even though Tennessee averages 240.56 yards through the air, Georgia football needs to eliminate the rush attack first.
The Vols average 217.1 yards on the ground a game and about five yards a carry through nine games this year. They are having a lot of success with their rush attack, which in return opens up their passing game.
Georgia needs to mimic what it has done to the Vols rush attack since 2017, as the Dawgs have allowed 197 total rushing yards in four years.
Hooker loves to tote the rock, and Tiyon Evans is another guy who will get a good chunk of carries. They are the Vols top-two rushers as Evans averages 6.5 yards a carry and has amassed 525 yards on 81 carries. He has six scores as well. Hooker averages 4.1 yards a carry and has 458 rushing yards.
However, Hooker has also lost 124 yards because he continues to get sacked, so while he can use his legs to the Vols’ advantage, it’s possible to take him right out of it if that pressure stays on him.
It’ll be considered a victory if the Dawgs can force the Vols to solely depend on their passing game. Georgia gave up too many rushing yards last week, and now they’ve got to prove to themselves that last week was just a minor hiccup in this monumental season.
Georgia has stopped this offense on the ground for four straight seasons, and they need to make it five. The Dawgs have the power to stop the run up front, and now they just need to execute that game plan on Saturday.
