Welcome to the Kirby Smart era! The Dawgs started the new season off on the right foot, coming from behind to defeat North Carolina 33-24.
Running back Nick Chubb picked up where he left off pre-knee injury, rushing for 222 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries and earning the SEC Offensive Player of the Week award.
Quarterback Greyson Lambert started the game, but Jacob Eason was the more effective signal caller, going 8-12 for 131 and his first career touchdown. More importantly, Eason completed a 51-yard pass to Isaiah McKenzie to help set up the go-ahead field goal. It was the longest pass play since 2013 for Georgia. Let’s not go that long again, and with Eason under center, I doubt Georgia will.
The Dawgs face Nicholls State this Saturday in the home opener Between the Hedges.
Fell Out: #16 UCLA, #20 USC, #22 North Carolina, #25 Florida
Newcomers: #10 Wisconsin, #11 Texas, #20 Texas A&M, #25 Miami
Yes, Wisconsin had a great win over LSU at Lambeau Field. But a Top 10 team? I think the voters overreacted and gave the Badgers too big of a jump. Let’s see how they do against their four-week gauntlet of Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State, and Iowa starting September 24th.
#3 Florida State and #5 Michigan
Getting a little nit-picky here, but I think Florida State is better than #2 Clemson and Michigan is better than #4 Ohio State. Luckily, these two debates will be settled on the field, most likely for their respective conference championships and spots in the playoff.
This Week’s Top 25 Match-ups
Hope you enjoyed last week. No Top 25 match-ups this week.
A lot was made of the SEC’s performance in Week 1. Arkansas is going to help silence the critics when they go to Fort Worth and knock off TCU, who gave up 41 points to South Dakota State in Week 1.
