Georgia football finally scored a touchdown against Georgia Tech in the second quarter to go up 10-7 on its in-state rivals. Yes, it took a little while, but the Dawgs finally settled in and got some big plays to set up a well-drawn-out five-yard touchdown pass to Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint.
The drive started with a huge 45-yard run from Kenny McIntosh, and from there, Daijun Edwards got the Dawgs into the red zone. After struggling in this area of the field, Georgia finally found a way to get it into the endzone by getting it to Rosemy-Jacksaint. The Dawgs are playing conservative football, which is frustrating to watch, but trusting the process is critical.
Georgia’s defense is also waking up, forcing some punts after giving up that first drive touchdown. It was not the typical start for the Dawgs, but since that score for the Yellow Jackets, Georgia has somewhat settled into its rhythm.
The Dawgs need to keep the pressure on and stop playing lazy football because this Tech team came ready to give them everything they have.
Georgia football finally shifted the momentum after back-to-back second-quarter scores.
This game seems to fly by, but both teams are milking the clock with their offenses on the field. Georgia’s defense needs to tighten up and has some since that opening score, but it’s not enough.
Rosemy-Jacksaint’s touchdown was a momentum-shifting instance that Georgia needed. The Dawgs marched down the field with a couple of big plays, and after that score, the defense got a stop to give the offense the football again.
Georgia football could swing the momentum even more on its next offensive drive. Ladd McConkey gave them an excellent field position, but the Dawgs fell short of scoring again. However, the Dawgs get the ball back to start the second half, and that is when they can take control of this game.
