ATHENS - The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs released the game’s trailer Thursday night. Head coach Kirby Smart and the Dawgs will take on the Charleston Southern in the final game in Sanford Stadium this season. 

Dogs Atop The Polls

For the sixth straight week, Georgia is the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP and Coaches polls. This matches the longest stretch at No. 1 since 1980. Currently, Georgia is ranked No. 1 in the College Football Playoff poll. Before this season, the last time Georgia was No. 1 in the CFP poll was for two weeks during the 2017 season (Oct. 31, Nov. 7). The third 2021 CFP ranking will be released on Tuesday. Georgia is 4-0 versus ranked teams, including a pair of top-10 wins.

Georgia-Charleston Southern Series History

The Bulldogs and Buccaneers have met only once and that came in 2014. Six different Georgia players scored as UGA topped Charleston Southern 55-9. Former Georgia receiver and current Houston Texan Chris Conley hauled in two touchdown passes from Hutson Mason and former Bulldog running back and current Cleveland Brown Nick Chubb had two scoring runs, including an 83-yard scamper. While the Buccaneers tallied 190 yards on the ground and won the turnover battle two to one, they only managed 21 through the air. Meanwhile, Georgia piled up 580 yards and was never forced to punt.

Dominating Defense & Offense Delivering Points

Georgia leads the nation in Scoring Defense giving up just 7.6 points per game. The Bulldogs are averaging 38.7 points per game, which is ranked 11th nationally.

The Bulldogs have only trailed four times this year. The first time was at No. 18 Auburn when the Tigers kicked a field goal in the first quarter. Georgia trailed in that game for 5:29. Following the Tigers' score, the Bulldogs reeled off 24 straight points. The second instance happened in the first quarter against Missouri following a field goal. The Bulldogs trailed for 5:08 in that contest. Georgia then went on a 40-0 run. At UT, Georgia fell behind 7-0 in the first quarter for 2:33 before tying the game. The Volunteers reclaimed a 10-7 advantage later in the quarter and led for another 7:07. Georgia responded by scoring 34 unanswered points in an eventual 41-17 victory.

The defense has allowed just seven touchdowns while the unit has scored three touchdowns. The defense did not allow a touchdown until the third game of the season and that came in the fourth quarter versus USC with the Bulldogs leading 40-6. The second came at No. 18 AU with Georgia leading 24-3. No. 11 Kentucky had two scores, including the final one with :04 left. Florida scored with 2:49 left in the game with Georgia leading 27-0. UT managed a first quarter TD and built a 10-7 lead before Georgia stormed back. By the way, UAB's touchdown came on a pick-six.

Georgia ranks second in the country in Red Zone defense. Opponents have advanced to the Red Zone only 21 times this season resulting in six touchdowns, six field goals and eight times have come away with no points. Missouri came into its game with the Bulldogs leading the league in Red Zone offense, scoring 25 out of 26 times. The Tigers went 1-for-2 versus Georgia. Missouri called a timeout with :23 left with 1st-andgoal from the 3 yard line. After getting two yards, the Tigers ran three plays from the 1 yard line and were denied. Most recently, UT went 3-for-5 with two scores, one field goal and twice were denied points.

Georgia opponents have scored just 76 points in 2021. That 10-game tally is the lowest since 1950 when the Bulldogs had allowed 58 through 10 contests.
