Georgia vs Georgia Tech Grade Report: Offense Starts Slow


Noon games haven’t been overly kind to No. 1 Georgia (12-0, 8-0) this season. The Bulldogs trudged to another win, this time over Georgia Tech.

Take a look at the offensive report card from their 37-14 win. 

Quarterbacks – C

Couple of things here. One, Stetson Bennett did not have to be great to win this game. Georgia Tech was looking to take away the explosive passing game, and that opened up the ground game for Georgia. Two, this Georgia team has been extremely sluggish in noon games this year and Saturday was no different. With that said, Georgia’s quarterbacks were not sharp against Tech. Stetson Bennett had just 28 yards at halftime and completed just 10 passes all day. 83 of Bennett’s 140 yards came on a wheel route to Kenny McIntosh. Even the layups were clunky, with Bennett very nearly underthrowing a wide open Brock Bowers in the end zone. Carson Beck came in for mop-up duty and promptly gave away a fumble for Georgia’s only turnover of the day.
