Challenges for Georgia

Georgia has absolutely dominated their series with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. With that in mind, they must not take the Jackets lightly. Tech is coming off an impressive win over North Carolina so their confidence is up. Georgia Tech is no powerhouse but they are a team that protects the football. They’ve only lost three fumbles this season which is eighth-best nationally. They are also good at causing and recovering fumbles. They’ve recovered 12 fumbles, which is seventh-best in the FBS. The only way Georgia can lose this game is by giving gifts like fumbles and interceptions to the Yellow Jackets. On Saturday Georgia needs to do its thing but take extra good care of the football.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
