The Bulldogs probably think 2020 could end differently. Quarterback Stetson Bennett took over in the opener against Arkansas and was successful. UGA has won big against ranked Auburn and Tennessee in consecutive weeks, with Bennett up to 689 passing yards and five non-interception touchdowns. On defense, the stingy unit is allowing just 12.3 points per game – and just 38.3 yards per game on the ground.
Alabama’s offense will be a great test. Quarterback Mac Jones has passed 1,101 yards in just three games, while RB Najee Harris has already scored 10 touchdowns.
But there are major concerns about defense. For so long, Alabama’s defensive dominance has helped it intimidate the rest of the SEC and others. This season, the Tide is giving up 30 points per game – and Ole Miss totaled 647 yards last week.
But if the game turns into a contest can you stop me, can Georgia follow? The Bulldogs’ rushed attack was inconsistent, which does not concern Alabama with their attack.
Add coach Nick Saban who tested positive with COVID, and it has been an unusual season at Tuscaloosa, even as Alabama continues to win. And even if Georgia finally defeats Alabama, there’s a chance they’ll have to do it again in December for the SEC crown.
