Georgia opened the 2019 campaign with a solid victory over Vanderbilt 30-6. While the Dawgs were never in danger of losing the game, they still left fans with a feeling that they could have been even more dominant.
The offensive line and running backs, however, did prove dominant, as Georgia racked up 323 rushing yards on 8.1 yards per carry. In the passing game, Demetris Robertson looks to be an answer, having caught a touchdown as well as rushing for 29 yards.
On defense, the Dawgs limited the Commodores to only two field goals. There is still plenty of room for growth, though, as the Dawgs produced just two sacks and zero interceptions.
All in all, though, it is a great start for the #3 ranked Bulldogs. Any road SEC win is a great win. Georgia welcomes Murray State between the hedges this Saturday for their home opener.
Fell Out: Arya Stark, aka No One
Newcomers: #24 Boise State
#5 Ohio State. Yes, I said it. The Buckeyes are overrated. Don’t get me wrong, they are still one of the better teams in the nation. And yes, Justin Fields is in a much better scheme for his skillset, and he looked like an All-American against FAU. But Ohio State will face much stiffer competition than FAU, with better athletes that will limit Fields’ running capabilities and not allow Buckeye wide receivers to be 10 yards open. They won’t make the college football playoff and they won’t win the Big 10. Take: hot and spicy.
#14 Washington. Noticing a theme here? The other Georgia transfer quarterback, Jacob Eason, also played exceptionally well for the Huskies. Eason made several big-time throws and looked comfortable back in the Pacific Northwest. Granted, they only played Eastern Washington, but the Huskies’ road to a conference playoff and potential college football playoff berth is much easier than Ohio State’s. The Huskies have a real shot at running the table and getting the Pac-12 back to the playoff.
