Georgia has not had a great season so far under first-year coach Kirby Smart. The Bulldogs are 4-3 with a loss to Vanderbilt, the Hail Mary miracle loss to Tennessee, a drubbing from Ole Miss and the close call against Nicholls State. It might get a lot worse with a third straight loss to the Gators this weekend should that happen.
NFL.com college football writer Chase Goodbread thinks that if the Dawgs are gonna win it sure as heck ain't gonna be through the air. Georgia averages only 207.3 passing yards a game and the Gators only allow 132.8 of those yards a game. That has led Goodbread to believe Georgia receivers will do absolutely nothing in this game.
UGA has been leaning heavily on its running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb which has helped the team average about 196 rushing yards per game. Not only does Goodbread's comment say a lot about his confidence in the secondary duo of Jalen Tabor and Quincy Wilson, but it also says a lot about the Dawgs' receivers who have not really gotten it done this season.
