Georgia 17 Bama 14 .... Bama held to 60 yards rushing 150 yards passing
If the OL sputters Bama could have a much more balanced game than that.
Its all going to depend on what happings in the trenches. The big IFs - IF the OL can protect JPW long enough for him to throw, and IF the DL can plug holes & get to Stafford and IF the LBs can shut down the quick screens, Bama's got a really good chance of dominating UGA. Lotsa ifs though...
A mediocre Bama team took the Dogs to OT last year. Bama's improved a lot and has brought in some play makers. One other thing that's in the Tide's favor - this will probably be the first time Saban really opens up the playbook on both sides of the ball - we haven't needed to get into it very deep so far this season.
One thing that may backfire is UGA's "Blackout" - Bama players feel like if UGA's players have asked to get out the special uniforms and create a lot of hoopla, the Dogs must think they need to pull out all the stops for this game. Bama's young players are feeling more confident because of that.
24 - 17 Bama.
