The Dawgs fended off a pesky UT Martin team after a slow start. The Bulldogs’ offense looked out of sync at times, but UT Martin never truly threatened to make the game competitive.
Defensively, Georgia picked up where it left off. Safeties Malaki Starks and Javon Bullard look like an elite pairing. The Dawgs allowed only 128 passing yards and 260 total yards in the win. Georgia’s defense lost its chance at another shutout in the fourth quarter, but bounced back with a Kyron Jones pick-six.

UT Martin's punter had a day
Too soon to overreact
I'm old enough to remember when everyone questioned Georgia's offense in a 33-0 win over Samford.
That year ended with undefeated Georgia winning a natty 65-7.
Forgive me if I'm not ready to cancel Georgia.
