Georgia football takes on Charleston Southern this upcoming Saturday and its senior day.

The Dawgs have two regular-season games left, and while they aren’t the most formidable teams, there is no need to overlook them.

Georgia has to remain focused on the prize and goal of finishing with a perfect 12-0 record. To finish undefeated in the regular season is a challenging feat, and the Dawgs have an excellent opportunity to do so.

Saturday brings a 4-5 Charleston Southern team to town that isn’t great but can make plays if given a chance to. The Buccaneers average 26 points a game and give up 25 points.

They average 122.7 rushing, 277.22 passing and 399.9 total offensive yards a game. Charleston Southern converts 41.56% of third downs and has a 73.5 red zone scoring rate.

Right now, after the way Georiga has demoralized nine straight teams, it’s almost unfair the Bucs have to take on the Dawgs, but they knew what they were scheduling when they did. This reason alone is enough to stop scheduling FCS teams in November, especially when a team like Georgia goes on a tangent of this magnitude.

While putting FCS schools on a team’s schedule is a double-edged sword, it is what it is, and the Dawgs have a noon kickoff against Charleston Southern, who they are likely going to demolish on Georgia’s senior day.

At the same time, we’ve seen teams like Michigan fall to Appalachian State in 2007, James Madison upset Virginia Tech in 2010, North Dakota State beating No.13 Iowa in 2016 and countless others.

Georgia cannot take the Bucs lightly and understand that even if they beat them by a massive amount of touchdowns, it’s still okay because they got some money for their program.

The Dawgs still had to prepare for the Bucs, and these are three players to know about for Saturday’s midday matchup.
