This Team Can Win 10 Games

The Georgia Bulldogs aren’t playing for a SEC East title anymore, but can play for more than just pride in the final three games of the season. UGA can still win 10 games in 2015, matching their win total from last year.

It won’t come easy, as Georgia Southern was 6-2 (4-1) entering Saturday’s game with the 3-6 (2-3) Troy Trojans in the Sun Belt. Though Georgia should beat Southern, this is a proud football program that feels like a giant killer now that they’ve made the leap to Division I. The Eagles would love to play spoiler in the GATA game with 5-Star UGA QB Commit Jacob Eason in the house.

Georgia Tech isn’t bowl bound after losing their 7th game of the season to rival Virginia Tech at Bobby Dodd on Thursday night. Even if the Jackets were playing in a National Championship Game, their title bout every year is versus Georgia. GT has never beaten Mark Richt at Bobby Dodd Stadium before and I’m sure they would love to beat Georgia for the second year in a row.

Assuming UGA can finish their regular season 9-3 (5-3), it would come down to the matchup of their bowl game adversary. My guess is that UGA will play somebody out of either the ACC or Big Ten, as that’s who they usually play. It could be any number of teams in the ACC, but certainly not Clemson or North Carolina who will probably play in Charlotte for the ACC Championship. If it’s an ACC team at this point, I’d say Miami (FL)? Out of the Big 10, I’m leaning towards a Michigan or a Penn State type of team.

Just keep on winning and we’ll figure this out. Go Dawgs! Get to 10!
