Georgia defense stifles Clemson in huge showing why they rule the SEC East

Primetime Saturday night pitted the instate and top-five ranked powers and the end result with Georgia coming away as the victor 10-3.

Both teams flexed their muscles on defense in dominating fashion and put punishing hit after punishing hit upon each other. Clearly when Kentucky travels to Athens on October 16 to play the Bulldogs in Week 7 they after tangling with Florida and LSU the previous weeks before they could be in for a very long game.

Even the defense accounted for the lone touchdown when Christopher Smith returned an interception of 74 yards for the score.

The Bulldogs held Clemson’s offense to 2 yards rushing and sacked D.J. Uiagalelei seven times to position themselves for a run at the College Football Playoffs alongside Alabama. They will surely move up into the top four in this week’s rankings.

Georgia hosts Alabama-Birmingham on Saturday.

Alabama is and always will be Alabama no matter who comes and goes

It doesn’t matter who Alabama graduates and/or sends to the NFL they simply reload and move players up the very deep depth chart year after year.

Quarterback Bryce Young had a successful debut breaking records completing 71-percent of his passes breaking the record for passing yards (344) and TDs (4) following a 44-13 rout of No. 16 Miami.

The Tide rolled up 500 yards of offense while forcing Miami into turning it over three times for a measly 266 yards.

Alabama hosts FCS school Mercer next Saturday.

Going in Kentucky’s favor is we don’t have to face them again for years to come after getting whooped last season.
