The Georgia Bulldogs are undefeated in their brief history against the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Georgia has faced the UAB Blazers twice. Both meetings were in Athens. Georgia won in 2003 and 2006. The Blazers nearly pulled off the upset in 2003, when they fell 16-13 to Georgia. David Greene and company helped Georgia get off to a good start against UAB, but the Blazers stayed in the game. In 2006, Georgia won 34-0 against UAB. In Georgia’s last meeting with the Blazers, quarterback Matthew Stafford debuted as UGA’s starting quarterback. Stafford and Kregg Lumpkin ran for touchdowns in Georgia’s shutout win.

Georgia has a 94.3% chance to win, according to ESPN’s matchup predictor via Football Power Index.

While star quarterback J.T. Daniels is dealing with a core injury and may sit this one out, Georgia's depth and shear talent will help the Bulldogs pickup the slack. Redshirt freshman Carson Beck is more than capable of stepping in and providing a steady hand under center. And Georgia's backfield is one of the best in the country, which is a great thing to have with a backup at quarterback. The Bulldogs' defense showed why they are one of the best in the country versus Clemson. I expect UGA will bring pressure early and often and unless UAB can get the ball out quickly, Blazer's quarterback Tyler Johnson will have a long Saturday in Athens. Dawgs win 42-7.
