2 Georgia will be hosting #8 Arkansas in Athens on Saturday at 11:00 am central. Georgia is coming into this game with the number one overall defense. However, Arkansas’s defense is ranked 12th overall, which is still an elite defense. It does not transfer over to offense for Georgia because they are ranked 32nd in overall offense. Arkansas’s offense on the other hand is ranked 20th overall. The question that everyone has is, is Arkansas a top team?
Georgia has shown that they are one of the best teams in college football. There is an argument that Georgia is the best college football team at the moment. Georgia has shown how dominant they are after last week’s 62 to 0 win over Vanderbilt. The Georgia defense continued its dominance by only allowing 77 total yards and 24 passing yards, and three takeaways. Their offense looked amazing once again, and the scoreboard showed it. They had 532 total yards, and those yards were split in half between passing and rushing. They had 291 passing yards and 241 rushing yards. Both sides of the ball looked amazing during this game.
JT Daniels started the game and went 9/10 and had 129 passing yards and two touchdowns. He did leave the game with an injury, and Stetson Bennett entered the game and continued where Daniels left off. Bennett had 151 yards on 11 completions and also added one touchdown. Georgia’s offense looked like they were an elite offense.
Georgia will have to continue their defensive and offensive performances this week. It will be the best defense they have faced all year and is a must-win for them. If Daniels can make big plays and score then Georgia will have a good chance at winning this game. Their defense has to also be able to stop the best offense they have faced so far. It will be a tough battle but if they do then it will be another easy win.
Arkansas is coming into this week on the heels of a tremendous win over Texas A&M. They won 20 to 10 and had 443 total yards and almost 200 rushing yards. This game was not the only win for Arkansas against a ranked team. They beat Texas during week 2, 40 to 21. Arkansas’s defense held Texas A&M 272 total yards and had an interception. Their offense had an 85-yard passing touchdown and a 48-yard passing touchdown. Their offense and defense will need big plays if they want to be able to beat Georgia.
KJ Jefferson had an excellent game and is looking to continue. Against Texas A&M, he had 212 passing yards and two touchdowns. HAving another amazing game then will be a good outcome for them. One of those touchdowns was to Treylon Burks, and he had 167 receiving yards on only six catches. They will need to either continue the huge plays with Burks or will need to be able to pass to other receivers.
Arkansas defense will need to play the best game that they have this season. Georgia will have the best offense that they have faced and also the best defense as while. They need to take control of the game early and keep their feet on the gas. Arkansas will have to have everyone during this game and be able to score more than one way.
Arkansas is on a roll right now, and this game is the second game of four of the hardest games they play in a row. Many things need to fall into place for Arkansas to win this game. Georgia will be facing the best team that they will play so far. Georgia is going into this game as the favorite. It will also be one of the best games of the week.
My Prediction: Arkansas wins 24 to 21.
