Arkansas Vs Georgia

I had been walking the winding paths of downtown on a lovely Sunday afternoon in mid-October, when I felt like a finger poke me in the back. I jumped out of my skin, spun around, and saw a friend standing there, a concerned look on his face.



After physically crushing Texas A&M and Texas in previous weeks, the Razorbacks were held underwater by a dominant Georgia front. The Bulldogs posted seven tackles for loss and four sacks against Arkansas, including two tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks from linebacker Nakobe Dean. Georgia has not posted back-to-back shutouts against SEC opponents since 1980 – coincidentally, the year the Bulldogs won their lone national title.

Nine of Georgia's 10 plays on its first drive of the second half, but the Razorbacks forced Bennett to pull down a pass on third-and-short to force a field goal from Jack Podlesny hit a 30-yard field goal to push the lead to 27-0. It's a modest win for an Arkansas defense that was getting gashed on the ground. Will it matter in the end? Probably not. But there are such things as moral victories for a team that is not used to being in the national spotlight. (Source: www.cbssports.com)


Arkansas has gone three-and-out four times in five drives, the Bulldogs scored on their first three drives of the afternoon and the their offensive line is dominating in what looks like a rout between the hedges. Oh, and the Georgia defensive front led by monster nose guard Jordan Davis has allowed just 78 yards by the Razorbacks -- who are 1-for-6 on third down. I'm not sure how Arkansas coach Sam Pittman can adjust to what has been an incredible performance for the home-standing Bulldogs.

But Saturday started with a Georgia showcase, from four sacks to James Cook’s 87 rushing yards, including a 24-yard dash. Through the season’s first five games, the Georgia defense, one of the nation’s best by one metric after another, has proved as expert as an Atlanta rush hour at shutting down whatever lane just looked open. The Bulldogs, who also held Vanderbilt scoreless on Sept. 25, have now managed back-to-back shutouts in SEC play for the first time since their 1980 title run. (Source: www.nytimes.com)
