Georgia football has the better offense despite the whole quarterback ordeal.

While the two offenses stack up nicely, when the Dawgs are on, they are better than the Wolverines. They have a more balanced offense than Michigan, and it may not seem like that after the Alabama game, but they do.

These two are similar teams, but each one has something special about them.

The Dawgs have a rush and passing attack that can hurt defenses in a flash, plus having Brock Bowers alone is a big push.

Georgia football has the better offense, which should help them beat Michigan on Dec. 31.

If we look at the numbers, they are similar, but stats don’t always define success. They are good determiners, but football is much more than just stats.

Georgia averages 39.38 points a game, while Michigan averages 37.69.

The Wolverines have a more successful rush attack as they average 223.8 yards a game and 5.3 yards a carry.

Hassan Haskins has had a big year for the Wolverines with 261 rushes for 1,288 yards and 20 touchdowns. He averages 4.9 yards a touch and 99.08 yards a game.

Against Iowa, he wasn’t much of an asset as the Hawkeyes held him to 56 yards, but those 28 carries for 169 yards and five touchdowns against Ohio State were why Michigan beat the Buckeyes. Georgia will need to make sure to keep an eye on him.

Georgia has a stable of backs that can tote the rock successfully, even though none of them are close to having Haskin’s numbers. The Dawgs are a team that uses three to four running backs in a game, and a good chunk of the time, all four find success.

Zamir White leads the Dawgs with 135 carries for 718 yards and 10 scores. He averages 5.3 yards a touch. James Cook has 101 carries for 619 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 6.1 yards a touch. Kenny McIntosh has 54 carries for 317  yards and three touchdowns, averaging 5.9 yards a touch.

As a whole, Georgia averages 194.69 rushing yards a game and 5.3 yards a carry using a caravan of playmakers to make it happen. Some may feel like that is a disadvantage, but it’s a massive advantage because it puts more work on the Michigan defense.

But the more impressive part is that all three of the main backs average for more than five yards a touch. That means the Wolverines have to prep for three backs and Stetson Bennett, who can also use his legs to hurt defenses.

Michigan averages 228.08 yards a game and 8.26 yards an attempt through the air. As for Georgia, they average 247.92 passing yards and 9.21 yards an attempt.

Bennett completes 64.07% of his passes and has thrown for 24 touchdowns on the season while currently holding a 176.84 quarterback rating.

Cade McNamara can make defenses pay with his arm as well. He also completes 64.61% of his passes, has thrown for 15 touchdowns and just four interceptions all season, and has a 145.45 quarterback rating.

It will be a blast seeing these two quarterbacks duke it out to see who can lead their offense to glory.

The biggest advantage Georgia has is its multitude of receiving weapons.

Bowers is a stud who gets stronger as the year progresses. The Dawgs have three guys with 400-plus receiving yards on the season, and Michigan has one.

Ladd McConkey and Jermaine Burton join Bowers with having over 400-yards on the season, and all three are healthy going into this game. George Pickens received good news about his COVID tests and is back practicing. He will be a factor in this game as well.

The Dawgs have 20 players with at least two catches on the season. Michigan has 17. Not that number matters much, but both teams like to spread the wealth. Georgia has just had more success with it.

Georgia needs to have some big plays against the Wolverines and keep them on their toes. It doesn’t have to be perfect but just strategic. To me, that strategy is what gives Georgia the edge. When they have a good game plan, there isn’t anyone that can stop them offensively or defensively.

While Michigan and Georgia have similar numbers, the edge goes to the Dawgs because of their ability to use multiple players to get the job done. If the Dawgs stop Haskins, it gets harder for Michigan, but the Wolverines will have four runners to stop instead of one.

The Wolverines have four wideouts to keep up with because all four can make an explosive play in a blink of an eye.

The Georgia, Michigan battle will be a fun ballgame to watch, and while it may seem repetitive, it’s likely going to be one of the best semifinal games since the 2017 Rose Bowl against Oklahoma.
