|Date & Time||Saturday September 26, 2015, 12:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Georgia Bulldogs -54.5 -- Over/Under: 74
The Southern Jaguars and Georgia Bulldogs square off Saturday at Sanford Stadium.
The Southern Jaguars look for their second road win after a solid 2-1 start. Austin Howard is completing 65.2 percent of his passes for 640 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Howard Howard has 66 of Southern’s 85 pass attempts. Randall Menard and Willie Quinn have combined for 355 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Mike Jones has seven receptions. The Southern Jaguars ground game is averaging 170 yards per contest, and Lenard Tillery leads the way with 284 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Southern is allowing 35.3 points and 462 yards per game. Kentavius Preston leads the Jaguars with 19 tackles, Danny Johnson has two interceptions and Aaron Tiller has 1.5 sacks.
The Georgia Bulldogs look to remain unbeaten heading into SEC play. Greyson Lambert is completing 74.1 percent of his passes for 587 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. Greyson is sixth in college football in completion percentage. Malcolm Mitchell and Sony Michel have combined for 351 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Terry Godwin has six receptions. The Georgia Bulldogs ground game is averaging 256.6 yards per contest, and Nick Chubb leads the way with 468 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia is allowing 16 points and 303 yards per game. Jordan Jenkins leads the Bulldogs with 22 tackles, Leonard Floyd has two sacks and Dominick Sanders has two interceptions.
This is a ton of points to lay regardless of how well Georgia is playing and the overwhelming mismatch in talent. The Bulldogs will get a big lead and then put in their backups as they prepare for SEC play. Besides, Southern is a decent winning program that can do some things offensively. The Jags have scored 50 or more points in three of their last five games.
I'll take the points here.
