It was a big Saturday night in Charlotte as Kirby Smart and the No.5 Georgia Bulldogs defeated the No.3 Clemson Tigers in a 10-3 defensive showdown.

The Bulldogs defeated the Tigers in front of the entire country, showing the college football world that they are serious contenders for this year’s national title. Multiple players emerged during the victory and the Bulldogs named their “Players of the Week” honors today.

 

Offense: Zamir White and Brock Bowers

The Bulldogs didn’t have a great night offensively, but they did run the ball well down the stretch. They gave senior back Zamir White the ball as they tried to run out the clock, and that’s exactly what he did, bowling his way to multiple first-downs to put the game away on the final drive.

White carried the ball 13 times for 74 yards and a key drive late in the 4th quarter. 

Bowers, a true freshman tight end from California, made an impact early in his Georgia Bulldog debut. The athletic, pass-catching tight end led the team in receiving on Saturday night, catching six passes for 43 big yards.

 

Defense: Christopher Smith and Nakobe Dean

One of Georgia’s veteran defensive backs, senior Chris Smith made the biggest play of the game Saturday night, returning an INT 74 yards for a touchdown in the 2nd quarter, scoring the only touchdown of the game. Smith also helped break up a 4th-down pass late in the game to help secure the victory.

Georgia’s leader on defense, former 5-star linebacker Nakobe Dean, was all over the place defensively. He recorded two big sacks in the game and helped lead Georgia’s defense to an all-time performance. He looked like one of the top linebackers in all of college football against the Tigers.

Special Teams: Ameer Speed and Arian Smith

Georgia’s special teams unit was outstanding against the Tigers, and Speed and Smith were a big reason why. They both were excellent in punt and kickoff coverage, helping pin the Tigers deep in their own territory throughout the game.
