Three Keys to Beating Tennessee

In short - Georgia needs to play Georgia Football on Saturday

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 21 Notre Dame at Georgia

On paper, this one should not be close.

After all, this Tennessee team is, how do we put it, not that good.

But at day’s end, these are still athletes highly thought of enough to be recruited to an SEC program, and there’s a enough fight in them to come out and hit Georgia if the Dawgs sleepwalk through things at Neyland Stadium.

Here’s three keys to a Georgia win

Force QB mistakes

Jeremy Pruitt has hinted that all three UT quarterbacks could play Saturday. Is a move to try an advantage possible? Sure. But regardless, Georgia needs to apply plenty of front-seven pressure and force turnovers.

Anonymous on the O-Line

This needs to be a day where few list Georgia’s offensive linemen by name as a result of them controlling the game. If few, if any sacks happen, it means good things are happening up front...as would the line having a TCB day and paving the road for Georgia’s ground game.

Start Strong

Few things give an underdog hope than a favored team playing flat and allowing the game to stay close. Georgia needs to send a firm early message and also score style points.

Go Dawgs!
