Georgia football must force the Vols to cough up the ball
After forcing three turnovers against the Gators, Georgia football wasn’t able to cause any against Missouri.
Georgia needs to force a couple of turnovers to knock Tennessee down a few notches. With Hooker having just two interceptions on the year, this defense needs to pay attention to every throw and if the front seven puts pressure on him, then be ready to pick him off once that mistake happens.
If the Dawgs get pressure on him, he will make mistakes, and then Georgia can pounce.
Georgia needs to break out the spiked shoulder pads a few times because it will eliminate the Vols confidence and take the crowd out of it.
It would be awesome to see a couple of interceptions and a fumble that delivers the final blow and allows Georgia to go up by a few touchdowns.
This game will be all about momentum, and if the Dawgs can swing it in their favor, it’ll be a long game for the Vols. Of Tennessee’s four losses, Florida was the only one the Vols didn’t cough up the ball. They had three turnovers against Pittsburgh, one against Alabama and Ole Miss, and the lone game they didn’t give the ball away was Florida.
So the Dawgs have a much better chance of beating the Vols if they force them to cough up the ball and make mistakes. We all see how crucial turnovers can be this season and the way Georgia causes havoc — a few turnovers should be achievable this week.
Georgia has the defense to make all three of these things happen, and if they want to impress the playoff committee again, they’ll make a statement in Knoxville. Last week we saw an elite defense start sluggish, but that won’t happen again if they refocus and get back to suffocating opponents.
