Georgia football refuses to give up points

One of the biggest things Georgia football needs to see from its defense is keeping Georgia Tech out of the endzone. The Dawgs have already shut out two opponents this year, and to really send a message, shutting out the Yellow Jackets would do just that.

Last week against Charleston Southern, the Dawgs gave up a touchdown on a freak turnover play, and now it’s personal to keep Tech out of the endzone. Even if they allow a field goal, Georgia needs to keep the Yellow Jackets from scoring a touchdown.

If this game goes as it should, Georgia should put this thing away early, and the backups who played last week will get a chance to redeem themselves and prove they can keep an opponent out of the endzone.

After the way Notre Dame handled Georgia Tech last week, there is no reason the Dawgs cannot do the same. Georgia has the best defense in the country, and this is the game they remind everyone about that. Last week they gave up 126 total yards, and while that is tricky to accomplish in back-to-back weeks, the Dawgs will prove they can shut down a rival.

They’ve smothered 10 straight opponents. Why not make it 11 straight. This matchup has been two years overdue, and after hanging 52 on Tech last time, Georgia will look to beat them by more this time around.

On Saturday, Georgia football needs to keep Tech out of the endzone and remind them who runs this state. The defense will need to stand tough because this is the last regular-season game of the year, and it’s time to end it on a high note.
