(Sporting Alert) — No. 16 Clemson meets No. 12 Georgia in one of the marquee college football games on Saturday, August 30 at 5:30 PM ET, at the Sanford stadium, Athensm, GA.
An early highly-hyped game is being anticipated by the fans between Georgia and Clemson. The winner of this football game has to go on having an opportunity to be part of the four-team playoff, while the loser has to hurdle obstacles, needing to win the remaining games.
Georgia football is known to be more on the ground than passing game. Surely, coach Mark Richt installed the run type of offense with the “I” formation. The powerful display of Georgia at the line of scrimmage would be the key in this game.
When it comes to ground game, Georgia possesses running backs that can move the chains from time to time. Moreover, the presence of wide receivers Chris Conley and Michael Bennet enchance the offense of the Bulldogs to separate themselves against their opponents.
Bennet said that it’s just a matter of getting into the top four and it’s easier than getting into the top two.
Georgia finished 8-5 last season and it needs a lot of fixing both in the offense and in the defense. Offensively, Georgia averaged 314.2 yards in passing and 169.9 yards in rushing. By having tight competitions in the SEC, the Bulldogs couldn’t fight against those teams.
Senior safety Corey Moore is determined to be part of a winning team with such defensive arsenals. Senior defensive back will be needed to brush aside what transpired last year.
One of the problems that will arise for the Tigers is the offense, without Sammy Watkins and Tajh Boyd. It’s about adjusting to the new players and how they cope up when the game is on the line.
The two teams opened the 2013 season in a gruelling battle as Clemson outlasted Georgia in a thriller, 38-35. This is one of the reasons why the Bulldogs girded up to deny the Tigers another victory.
If the Tigers offense is not prepared to navigate through the defense of the Bulldogs, then this game would be for Georgia.
Offensively, Clemson averaged 333.1 yards in passing and 174.6 yards in rushing per game. Nobody knows what the offense of the Tigers would do especially against the Bulldogs.
Will the Georgia Bulldogs be able to get the revenge that wanted?
