Georgia Bulldogs Remain At No.2 In AP Poll after 56-7 Victory

As expected, Kirby Smart and his Georgia Bulldogs remain at No.2 in the newest AP Poll after their impressive 56-7 win over UAB this weekend in Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs jumped to the No.2 spot last week after their big 10-3 win over Clemson and will stay there unless the Crimson Tide are able to get tripped up at some point this season.

The Bulldogs might be playing musical chairs at the QB spot with starter J.T Daniels out with an oblique injury, but after their dominating performance against the Blazers, it’s clear the Bulldogs are a serious national title contender and one of the elite teams in the country.

Backup QB Stetson Bennett got this start this weekend and delivered big throws the entire first half. The veteran threw five touchdown passes in the first half alone, etching his name in Bulldog history. He ended the game 9/11 for 279 yards and five touchdown passes.

The Bulldog defense impressed once again, giving up zero offensive points to the Blazers. Georgia’s defense has only given up 3 points so far through the first two games. The entire group showed out against UAB, but it was the secondary who really shined as they gave up only 47 passing yards. Defensive backs Kelee Ringo and Lewis Cine both intercepted passes, and for the second straight game, the Bulldog defense came up with a pick-6. Last week it was safety Christopher Smith who returned his interception for a score, and this week it came from freshman linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson. 

The Bulldog defense has out-scored the opponent’s offense in both games so far this season.
