Can Georgia's offense keep up with the Gators?

Florida’s offense can put up points. 

The Gators are averaging 42.8 points per-game this season. Florida’s season-low in scoring so far is 38 points.

Georgia has only topped 38 one time. 

Georgia’s offensive struggles have been no secret. It was clear from the trip to Fayetteville back in September that there was going to be a growing period. That was confirmed a couple weeks later when Georgia got outscored and outplayed by Alabama. 

That can’t happen again if Georgia wants a chance to compete for a national championship- if that game even happens this year. 

Here comes Florida with a high scoring offense. A lot of that has to do with quarterback Kyle Trask and tight end Kyle Pitts. The Kyle-to-Kyle duo has been lethal thus far. 

Seven of Trask’s 18 passing touchdowns are accredited to Pitts. Pitts is the best weapon on an offense with a few explosive playmakers. 

“With all of my history in the SEC, I don’t know that there has been a guy like that. He is a receiver and tight end in one,” Kirby Smart said.

That is extremely high praise. 

Georgia’s defense will be missing Richard LeCounte, Jordan Davis and Julian Rochester. The defense is deep, but those are key players, and the Florida offense is difficult to stop already.

Georgia has not had a go-to weapon like Pitts this season. The offense has been inconsistent all year. 

Georgia has to score to keep up with Florida, but can they?

The run game paced for over 200 yards last week, but Stetson Bennett struggled again with another game where he threw for multiple interceptions. The end of the year is coming up fast, and Georgia still hasn’t put together all of the pieces on offense. 

Todd Monken’s system has yet to show the improvement a lot of people are expecting. There is a lack of flare and explosiveness that Georgia fans have craved for years. 

Florida is going to score. Their offense is good enough to score a few touchdowns on Georgia. 

Many of the so-called experts predicted that Florida will win the East this year. They will be hungry after losing three-straight games to the Bulldogs. They are also in the same position of desparation with one loss on their record.

The Bulldogs need to find the endzone. 14 points will not cut it like it did last week against Kentucky.
