Georgia football holds Michigan to under 150 rushing yards

Georgia football fans saw the defense show weakness for the first time against Alabama, and from all reports since then, the defense knows they screwed up that night.

Since they know, the Alabama performance wasn’t even close to their standards. I kind of feel bad for Michigan because this group is motivated to prove they are as good as advertised.

The Wolverines thrive on running the ball and throwing it when needed, so if the Dawgs can force them to throw more than run the ball, that will benefit Georgia.

While yes, the Wolverines have the best offensive line in the country, they haven’t faced a defensive front like the Dawgs’ have. Friday will be a true test for them to see how their line matches up to one of the most talented front sevens in all of college football.

This defense will hold Hassan Haskins and Blake Corum to under 150 yards. We will give them that because they have one of the better rush attacks in the country, so we expect them to make some plays, but once Georgia gets the advantage, it could be a long day for Haskins and company.

The Dawgs are mad at how they left the SEC Championship game and know if you win this one, that revenge game could very well happen. Regardless, you win, you’re still in, and if you lose, then the season is over, so this game will test how bad Georgia wants it.

That defense is generationally good and should be able to get enough stops against Michigan. Georgia has a fast and agile defense, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Wolverines prepare for that.
