BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE


What's new at Georgia compared to last year? Well, not much. Kirby Smart is in his sixth year. JT Daniels is a fourth-year junior and has already been named the starting quarterback. The team is returning a majority of its players on both sides of the ball.


But so are the Razorbacks. And if you remember from last season... this is an Arkansas team that sized up pretty well for most of last year's matchup.


Here are three things you might not know about Georgia... and how this team can take control of the SEC in Athens.


▶️ Ground Attack: Georgia's running backs are... well... they're good, folks. And their top five backs are returning—all of which averaged at least 5.3 yards per carry. Kirby Smart built this team to run and run they will, especially this year when four of their five starting offensive linemen from last season are returning.


▶️ Green Light In The Red Zone: Last season, the Bulldogs allowed opponents to score in 21 of their 22 trips to the red zone. Arkansas did it just once last season, ending in three points.


▶️ Finish Strong: The last time Arkansas faced Georgia they scored first, led at halftime, and didn't allow a touchdown until the middle of the third quarter. This is a team that threw the kitchen sink at the eventual No. 7 team in college football for most of the game. But Georgia was a team that finished strong all year, outscoring opponents 59-16 in the fourth quarter last season. Don't let the game get away from you and this will be a one-possession game late in the matchup.


SEC Media Days is scheduled to start on Monday, July 19th. Leading up to the event, we'll be breaking down all 12 of the team's opponents in 2021. Up tomorrow? Ole Miss!
