You can’t really compile a list of the greatest Georgia offenses of all time without somehow including Herschel Walker. The truth is, it wasn’t just Walker who carried the offense in his sophomore season. Quarterback Buck Belue and receiver Lindsay Scott continued their strong connection, and Georgia set numerous program records on offense.

Kevin Butler also contributed to this high-powered offense, scoring 97 points for the Bulldogs.

This was undoubtedly a typical Georgia ground-and-pound offense, and few defenses found a way to stop the Georgia onslaught. The only game in which Georgia did not score more than 20 points was the Week 3 loss to Clemson, the eventual national champion.
