Georgia Football got a huge win, taking South Carolina to the woodshed 41-17. These are the things I learned from the dismantling.

The Georgia Bulldogs fans and team, feasted on poultry Saturday, as the University of Georgia destroyed the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Dawgs controlled nearly every facet of the game. There are four things that stood out in the dominant win.

The Offensive Line Is Top Notch

Georgia Football sports one of the largest offensive lines in all of football. They outweigh the Atlanta Falcons’ offensive line at every position other than center. The quintet averages an astounding 329 pounds per man.

The right side of the Georgia offensive line is particularly huge, with right guard Ben Cleveland weighing 341 pounds, and right tackle Isaiah Wilson tipping the scales at 345 pounds. Offensive Coordinator Jim Chaney often calls the play to that side, when Georgia Football really needs a big first down on the ground.

The Dawgs massive offensive line paved the way for UGA, to churn out 271 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, on a whopping 52 carries. That’s an average of 5.2 yards per carry!

The Georgia Football o-line, blocked for a variety of running backs, as well as wide receivers in space. They sealed off the edge, and provided cutback lanes. Every back on the team averaged at least five yards per carry, except James Cook and Prather Hudson. Cook and Hudson both played several snaps with the second unit.

The Bulldogs offensive line also blocked very well on screen plays. They particularly cleared a lot of room, for wide receiver Mecole Hardman to have a big day out in space. The best thing about the performance is, they visibly wore their opponent down as the game progressed. Offensive line guru Sam Pittman has this unit playing as one of the nation’s best.
