ATHENS - The No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs and coach Kirby Smart are getting ready to travel to No. 18 Auburn this weekend, but there’s still fallout from the Dawgs’ 37-0 win over No. 8 Arkansas.

SEC Shorts, the quick-form comedy team that weights in on the events around the league each week, accused the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide of bullying over the weekend. 

No. 1 Alabama and the No. 2 Dawgs won lopsided affairs at their home stadiums. Georgia used the nation’s best defense to shut down the Hogs, who had been scoring consistently before the trip to Athens. 

For only the third time in school history and the first time since 1976, Georgia posted a shut out a top 10 team with a 37-0 victory over No. 8 Arkansas. It was the first time since 1980 that the Bulldogs had back-to-back shutouts of SEC opponents, doing it against Vanderbilt and Kentucky. Today Georgia posted its seventh shutout in the Kirby Smart era and the fifth in an SEC game.

The other shutouts of top 10 teams came when No. 6 Georgia blanked No. 10 Alabama 21-0 here in 1976, and in 1942, the No. 5 Bulldogs shut out No. 2 Ga. Tech 34-0 here. The Razorbacks finished with 156 yards of total offense (75-rushing, 87-passing) and came in averaging 35.8 points a game. 

Georgia leads the nation in Scoring Defense, allowing just 4.6 points per game. Opponents now have scored just 23 points on the Bulldogs this year. The Bulldogs are now 12-6 against top 10 foes under Kirby Smart including 4-0 at home. Georgia improved to 4-2 when ESPN College GameDay is in town including winning its last four. The Bulldogs are 5-0 under Smart for the third time (2017-19).
