By all accounts, Georgia should roll over Georgia Tech on Saturday. Then again, the same was said about USC Jr.

Simply put, Georgia needs to do a lot of things bad and Tech needs lots to go right in order to have a sliver of hope of a win.

If Georgia does these things, odds of a win are good.

Stop The Run early.

Georgia held Texas A&M to minus-1 rushing yards last week, and it’ll need to do the same against Tech early on to eradicate any confidence from Tech’s win last week.

If Georgia gives Tech a dismal start, notably shutting down James Graham, it controls the games tempo from the start.

Don’t get caught up

This game is everything to Tech fans and players. Win, and it’s a big deal fora year. Look for the Jackets to play with that emotional chip on their shoulders, something that Georgia does not need to be baited into responding to.

Protect The Ball

One surefire way to throw mometum away on the road? Turn the ball over. If Georgia does this, it controls the game and winning is easier.

Go Dawgs!
