Georgia Brings a Top 2 Ranking Into Death Valley
Number two Georgia takes on Number 13 LSU in an SEC clash that could determine which teams make the final cut for the College Playoffs.
Georgia leads the SEC in rushing, averaging 245 yards a game, as part of a larger, devastating offense. That offense is headed up by Sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm, who has already racked up 12 touchdowns this season in the air, and only 2 interceptions. Even though Fromm's talent is pretty unquestioned, he hasn't broken 300 yards passing in a single game this year, but that's because he hasn't had to. Georgia's closest game was at Missouri, where they won 43-29. Fromm was 13 of 23 for 260 yards and 3 touchdowns in that win.
The Georgia offense hasn't been pass-heavy this year though. A large chunk of their damage has been on the ground. It's a ground attack that shares opportunity pretty well so far this year. There are 3 Bulldogs with at least 3 rushing touchdowns, and 4 backs with at least 25 attempts on the ground. The attack is led by Elijah Holyfield and D'Andre Swift, who each have at least 58 carries and 3 touchdowns.
On top of all of that offense, on defense Georgia is allowing just 13 points a game.
