I did NOT see this coming. The good news is that Georgia went on road in back to back weeks playing quality defenses and completed back to back SEC Seasons undefeated and as @Graham Coffeypointed out, that doesn't happen often.
UGA becomes one of 3 programs to ever go 8-0 in back-to-back seasons against SEC opponents since the league started division play— Graham Coffey (@DawgOutWest) November 19, 2022
They’re the first to do it since Alabama in 2008 & 2009. The only other team to achieve it was Florida in 1995 & 1996
Georgia was able to rack up points in Starkville, but not last night getting out of town with a 16-6 win. The offense did eek out 50% success rate, and Bennett only threw the ball 19 times. The longest gain of the night was a 35 yard pass to Blaylock - which you love to see, but 40 plays went for 5 yards or less. No one should panic about the offense because I don't think Georgia wanted to do anything but get out of town with the win. If they struggle against Tech - which is playing quality defense, we might revisit this statement.
