Another week in the books and Georgia continues its march towards Atlanta (hope I can type that as coolly this time next week). So let’s see how the team fares in comparison to its predecessors under Richt that made it to the SECCG. Here’s how things look after Tennessee (all stats via cfbstats.com):
- Hold opponents under 18 points per game. As a team, Georgia is yielding 22 ppg.
- Finish at least +8 in turnover margin. Georgia’s turnover margin is +1.
- Average better than 380 yards per game on offense. Georgia’s offense is averaging 536 ypg.
- Finish in the top five in total defensive yardage. Georgia’s defense ranks tenth in total defense.
- Finish in the top three in first downs. Georgia is fourth in first downs.
- Finish no worse than third in passing yardage. Georgia is fourth in passing yardage.
- Finish no worse than third in sacks. Georgia is ninth in sacks.
Progress wasn’t exactly made last week, although it’s too early to panic. But it’s pretty obvious that the offense is carrying the team through the 5-0 start.
