2. Georgia football records 10 plays that went 15-plus yards
Georgia football was able to score at will and do whatever they wanted to on offense.
The Dawgs saw 22 players record a positive number play against the Bucs, and that is a lot of people touching the ball and making something happen with it.
Heck, starting nose tackle Jordan Davis was part of 10 guys who recorded at least two yards on the day and one of four guys who scored a rushing touchdown. Someone call New York and tell him the big man is coming because he deserves to be in Heisman contention.
With 488 yards of offense on 69 plays, there had to be some explosive plays, and there were. By definition, an explosive play is a run going for 20 or more yards and a pass going for 30 or more yards.
Georgia had, by definition standards, four explosive plays on the game with two 30-yard catches and two 40-yard rushes. However, the Dawgs had 10 plays go for at least 15 yards.
Starting running backs Zamir White and James Cook each had 40 yard rushes on the day. White recorded four carries for 83 yards and one touchdown, which means he averaged 20.8 yards a touch. As for his counterpart, Cook had six carries for 57 yards and one score averaging 9.5 yards a carry.
The two catches came from a 30-yard touchdown pass to Dawgs tight end Brett Seither and Kenny McIntosh, who had a 32-yard grab.
However, of those 10 15-yard plays, six were through the air, and four were on the ground.
Brock Bowers had a 19-yard run and a 20-yard catch. He finished the game with 56 all-purpose yards and caught two passes to score. Jackson Meeks had a 27-yard catch in the game, and Daijun Edwards recorded a 16-yard run.
Cook also had an 18-yard catch to put him at 75 all-purpose yards on the game.
Georgia used their playmakers on Saturday and even saw some guys who don’t always get a ton of playing time step up and show they can make things happen too.
