There aren’t too many teams that feel like near-locks for the conference championship game in just week two of the season, but the Georgia Bulldogs are certainly one of those teams. Last week’s 10-3 win over Clemson means Georgia has cleared the toughest obstacle on its schedule already, and the Bulldogs basically control their own fate in getting to Atlanta in December.

Without getting too ahead of ourselves, though, let’s just focus on Saturday’s game against UAB. The Blazers put up a 31-0 win against Jacksonville State last week to open the season, dominating their opponents in all facets and amassing over 500 yards of total offense. Quarterback Tyler Johnston went 17/21 with 320 passing yards and two touchdowns. Obviously, Georgia is significantly better than Jacksonville State, but it should be interesting to see what sort of offensive schemes the Blazers throw at the Bulldogs.

On the Georgia side, it should be fun to watch the offense against a team that isn’t among the best in the nation. JT Daniels and Zamir White both looked good against Clemson, but they should look great against UAB.
