Georgia football will see 7.5 yards a touch average against Tech
Georgia football has been productive on offense the last few weeks, averaging incredible yards per play.
Last week against Charleston Southern, Georgia averaged 7.1 yards a play, and against Missouri, the Dawgs averaged 8.0 yards a play.
This week, Georgia needs to continue that trend against Georgia Tech, who gives up 448.5 yards of offense on average and 6.3 yards a play. The Dawgs could very well make the goal of averaging 7.5 yards a touch.
Starting running backs James Cook and Zamir White are both well-rested and ready to bulldoze over defenses. They both impressed last week as they each earned 40-yard runs. White’s went for a touchdown as he led the team on four carries for 83 yards, averaging 20.8 yards a touch.
Cook averaged 9.5 yards a carry as he earned six carries for 57 yards and a score.
This offensive line continues to get better each week, and with them being semifinalists for the best offensive line in the country, they need to put on a clinic and allow the running backs to thrive.
When Georgia can run the ball effectively, which they’ve been able to the last two weeks, life is better, and it compliments the passing game just the right amount. Georgia is RBU for a reason, and this group can help produce a 7.5 yards per touch number this week.
Plus, when the run game is good, that means the Dawgs are usually controlling the clock. Last week they scored so fast that time of possession didn’t matter, but it wouldn’t hurt to see them put together a few long drives against the Yellow Jackets this week to rub it in for good measure.
