There are nearly two months remaining until the college football season starts, and there are a ton of question marks and story lines for each team. The main one for Georgia focuses on who will start at quarterback. Brice Ramsey should eventually get that spot, but no matter who does, it will be the Bulldogs’ third starter in three years.
Let’s take a look, yep in July, at a game-by-game prediction for the Bulldogs’ season.
Sept. 5 vs. Louisiana-Monroe: Easy win here, no matter who is starting at quarterback for the Bulldogs. But it will be interesting to see who that is and how long he plays in the opener. ... W.
Sept. 12 at Vanderbilt: The SEC opener on the road with a first-year quarterback could be dangerous. But it better not be, or it could be a long season for the Bulldogs. Just give the ball to Nick Chubb and everyone block for him (that should be the game plan the whole season), and things will be fine. ... W.
Sept. 19 vs. South Carolina: This game has meant so much to the SEC East race in the past decade, but the Gamecocks are coming off a down year and like the Bulldogs have a first-year starter at quarterback. ... W.
Sept. 26 vs. Southern: Another non-conference cake walk for the Bulldogs, who will need to build some confidence for the next game. ... W.
Oct. 3 vs. Alabama: The last time the Crimson Tide visited Sanford Stadium, things got ugly quickly, and we’re not talking about Georgia’s black jerseys that night. It probably won’t be that bad, but it will be the first loss of the season. ... L.
Oct. 10 at Tennessee: The Volunteers are sexy picks this season to be in the hunt in the SEC East. But what have they really done since Butch Jones took over? ... W.
Oct. 17 vs. Missouri: The Tigers are again being overlooked in the SEC East, but that has worked OK for them the past two seasons as they have won the division title each year. ... L.
Oct. 31 vs. Florida: The Gators’ offense has been among the worst in the country the past few seasons, and while they have a new head coach and staff, they haven’t had enough time to fix that mess. ... W.
Nov. 7 vs. Kentucky: Fans and media members keep waiting for the Wildcats to take the “next step.” Keep waiting. ... W.
Nov. 14 at Auburn: This could be the swing game to decide if Georgia’s season is a success or not. ... W.
Nov. 21 vs. Georgia Southern: The Eagles have made a strong and quick transition to FBS play, but the Bulldogs should be able to win this one without much trouble. ... W.
Nov. 28 at Georgia Tech: While the Bulldogs appear to be unsettled at quarterback, the Yellow Jackets are as strong at that position as they have been since Paul Johnson took over with Justin Thomas running the show. ... L.
Final regular-season record: 9-3, 6-2 SEC.
