Georgia left guard Isaiah Wynn has plenty of confidence heading into Saturday’s game against Alabama.
Wynn and the offensive line face a tough Crimson Tide front seven that has limited opposing teams to under two yards per rush. Due to this statistic, Wynn was asked if this was the offensive line and running back group’s toughest test this season.
"Yes, but I think we’ll pass it with flying colors if we go out there and play football and do what we’re supposed to do," Wynn said.
Wynn said the momentum Georgia has in getting out to a 4-0 start is why he feels confident. Georgia ranks 17th in the nation in running the ball with an average of 257.8 yards per game. Dating back to last season, running back Nick Chubb has gone for at least 100 yards in 12 consecutive games, and would tie Herschel Walker’s program record of 13 if he does so against Alabama.
Wynn said the offensive line’s fundamentals will play a big part in deciding the outcome of this game.
"I feel like it just comes down to our technique,” Wynn said. “As long as we got good technique, we’re going to win that game."
Wynn noted the Alabama front seven is a strong group and that he's impressed with the fact it doesn't miss many assignments.
Wynn said the chance to play an important SEC game such as this is part of the reason he wanted to come to Georgia. He’s hoping the Bulldogs, ranked eighth in this week’s AP top 25, do enough to prove they’re among the nation’s best.
"I just think it would make a big statement, that we’re here this year,” Wynn said. “Let everybody know we’re coming full force this year."
