Today, I’ve already posted Patrick Garbin’s tweet about how remarkable the team’s defensive scoring mark is from a historical program perspective. It’s also remarkable from the perspective of the 2019 season.
In eight conference games, Georgia has given up a total of 84 points. To give you an idea of how dominant that figure is, consider that Vanderbilt, which has the SEC’s worst scoring offense by a country mile, has managed to score 92 points — in seven games.
SEC teams that put up some of their lowest scoring totals of the season against Georgia: Auburn (2nd lowest), Florida (lowest), Kentucky (lowest), Missouri (lowest), Tennessee (3rd lowest), Texas A&M (2nd lowest) and Vanderbilt (2nd lowest).
I find more value in advanced stats than do some of you, but when you get down to it, the most important stat for a defense is keeping the other guy off the scoreboard. In that regard, Georgia’s been stellar this year.
