Georgia vs UAB: Score, stats predictions

·1 min read

No. 2 Georgia takes on UAB today in its home-opener.

The Bulldogs are fresh off a 10-3 win over Clemson, and UAB over Jacksonville State.

UAB has had an 11 day break since its cupcake win over Jacksonville State compared to Georgia’s seven day break after an absolute slugfest against Clemson.

Georgia should obviously win this game, but I do expect it to be a little bit closer than most anticipate. UAB is legit – the Blazers have won its division three straight years and the CUSA title two out of those three years.

Georgia will likely be playing without quarterback JT Daniels, so the Dawgs will already be at a disadvantage.

With all that mind, here’s our score and stats predictions for the game:
