5. Georgia football saw an explosive offensive performance
On Saturday, Georgia football had seven explosive offensive plays against the Yellow Jackets, with five of them being explosive pass plays.
According to Georiga offensive coordinator Todd Monken, his definition of an explosive play is a 12-plus yard runs or a 16-plus yard pass.
The Dawgs had two passes go for 11 yards, and one pass go for 15 yards, so in all, Georgia had 10 plays go 11-plus yards. It’s a pretty fantastic day when a team does that on offense, and the statistics proved that.
They connected on a 77-yard touchdown pass, a 30-yard reception, a 25-yard touchdown pass, an 18-yard reception, and a 16-yarder.
Georgia saw 208 yards on the ground and 255 through the air, scoring six touchdowns and one field goal. They scored when they wanted to, and it seemed like they were testing a few things out on offense for future matchups.
Starting quarterback Stetson Bennett ensured everyone got their hands on the ball as he connected at least once with 10 wideouts. Once again, the Dawgs made it a point to get the ball into the hands of multiple playmakers, and they saw three guys score because of that.
The two explosive runs went for touchdowns on the ground as runningbacks Daijun Edwards recorded a 23-yard run and Kenny McIntosh toted one 59 yards.
Georgia did what they wanted to on offense, resulting in a 45-point win and their 16th straight win.
