Georgia made a statement with a 31-3 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday.
The Bulldogs looked complete on both sides of the football and seem like the favorite to not only win the SEC East, but also contend for a national championship through their first four games.
ESPN’s Paul Finebaum was among those who jumped onto the Georgia bandwagon following last night’s win. During an appearance on SportsCenter, Finebaum called the Bulldogs a “legitimate threat” to Alabama as the top team in the SEC.
“I like what I see,” Finebaum said. “They have two very good quarterbacks, they have great running backs, they have wide receivers, they have a nasty defense. I love Georgia.”
Georgia has outscored its opponents 124-46 through its first four games. The Bulldogs also rank third among SEC teams in scoring defense (11.5 points allowed per game) and fourth in total defense (269.5 yards allowed per game), as well as fourth in rushing offense (223.25 yards per game).
Georgia will face Tennessee at Neyland Stadium on Saturday.
