SCOUTING THE OFFENSE
Georgia has scored on all 12 of its trips in the red zone, but only six of those have been touchdowns. The Bulldogs scored TDs on only 51 percent of their red-zone possessions last year and wanted to improve on that stat this season. "You look back on the red zone the last two years, it's just the same thing over and over," coach Mark Richt said. "Plays have presented themselves and we haven't made them for whatever reason. We get the heebee jeebees down there."
SCOUTING THE DEFENSE
In their most recent game, the Bulldogs allowed Marshall just 160 yards, including 37 on the ground, the lowest rushing total given up by the Georgia defense since last season's opener against Clemson. The defense carried the offense in the Marshall game, and until the offense improves the defense will have to continue to form the foundation for this team.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"They definitely seem like they were coming from everywhere. They play kind of an unorthodox style of defense. It's not just cut and dry like you see with a lot of teams. There's a lot of movement and a lot of shifting and they play so many different types of coverages that it can make it difficult to attack them." -- Georgia QB David Greene, on LSU's defense.
