What Florida Media Is Saying About Georgia Football Ahead Of The Big Game


Ahead of the Georgia-Florida game, we take a look at what some respected Gator media outlets are saying about the Bulldogs this week.

Here are a few excerpts from their stories on the Dawgs.

Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel:

Like LSU, Florida will hope to rattle Georgia sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm, who gave up two interceptions and suffered three sacks against the Tigers. The key will be to contain a Bulldogs run game that is No. 2 in the SEC with an average of 5.78 yards per carry and unleash pass rushers Jachai Polite and Jabari Zuniga, who have combined for 11.5 sacks.

Feleipe Franks and the offense are going to have to take care of the football and Dan Mullen is going to have to come up with another game plan that will help the Gators to continue showing improvement on that side of the ball. Defensively, the Gators have to slow down the run. If they can’t, if they don’t, it’s going to be a long, frustrating afternoon. The defense also has to limit explosive plays, which have been a recent problem.

Georgia’s linebackers aren’t as good as a unit as they were last year. Some of their key players have proven inconsistent. Natrez Patrick hasn’t been as effective as expected without Roquan Smith in the mix, while edge linebacker D’Andre Walker has alternated between dominating (like against Missouri) and being invisible (like against Vanderbilt).

Not to be discounted, the UGA defensive line hasn’t been elite either. Therefore, I think sometimes linebackers try a little to hard to make up for it.

Zone runs are an excellent kind of play to use against such a defense, and Florida has plenty of them.
