It’s a true exhibition game for Georgia, while Louisiana-Lafayette is trying to pull off a whopper to get closer to a bowl bid.
The Bulldogs were supposed to need this game to ensure bowl eligibility, but they took care of that last week with a brilliant defensive performance in the win over Auburn.
This is a scrimmage – the bowl slot will be the only thing that sort of matters – but staying in one piece for Georgia Tech next week is bigger to the fan base. So this is the game to try opening things up and taking some chances.
This is when the inefficient and ineffective passing game has to let it rip, getting some live reps against a struggling secondary that’s had no luck against the better passing teams – and there haven’t been a lot of those lately.
Louisiana-Lafayette has a decent defensive front, and the offense came up with a stunner at Georgia Southern last week, with decent run after decent run, starting with former LSU QB Anthony Jennings starting to shine, completing 17-of-26 passes for 210 yards, and running for 96 yards and a touchdown.
Can he do more than Auburn QB Sean White did last week? Absolutely.
But the Ragin’ Cajuns don’t have the lines to hold up if Georgia wants to make this simple and pound away.
The Georgia linebackers will swarm on Jennings, while the running game will rumble against a banged up ULL defensive front that was brilliant against the Georgia Southern offense last week, but will get powered on in the second half against the Dawgs.
Watch out for the Ragin’ Cajuns to make this a little scary before Georgia wakes up in time to make this a breather by the fourth.
