8 Gigantic Influences Of Uga Football | uga football

The UGA football program represents the University of Georgia on the sport of professional football. The Bulldogs play in the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference and are one of the top teams in Division I. They are also one of just two teams to win the national championship in over a century. The recent graduation of star player Trent Murphy and the addition of two first-year All-Americans in Murphy and tackle Jack Crawford, make this a top team to watch for any fan.

The Bulldogs have a tradition of producing top-notch athletes, so they are not without talent. Linebacker Trent Murphy, who started all 16 games at right tackle and earned second team All-SEC honors, is one of the leaders of a young defense that is considered to be one of the best in the country. Freshmen such as junior college standout Aaron Murray and sophomore depth piece Alex Smith give the Bulldogs a bright future.

The Bulldogs are led by their offense, which averagesander more than 45 points per game. They average over 45 rushing attempts and have one of the best runners in FBS history in current starter Derrick Locke. Sophomore Darell Wilson is one of the breakout stars on the offensive line. He has started all 14 games and is the breakout star from a defense that wasn't expected to produce much this season.

Quarterback Quinton Powell has been the lone bright spot on an otherwise pedestrian offense. He completes nearly 70% of his passes and is one of the best passers in the conference. Sophomore Traynce Palmer has emerged as one of the Bulldogs' best receivers after catching seven passes for scores. Sophomore Kamryn Pettis has established himself as one of UGA's top returning tight ends.

The Bulldogs lose some key players to graduation such as tackling Jake Long and Bryan Scott and running back Tray Woods. But this loss does little to dampen their confidence. “We're going to play with more fire tomorrow,” athletic director Bill Ferguson said. The Bulldogs are coming off of a surprising win against an FCS opponent and will look to take down the No. 7-ranked Fighting Saints in their next game.

The Georgia Bulldogs are one of only two Power 5 teams that has never lost a home game. This is a huge burden off of Georgia fans that haven't been home in Athens since the late 1970s. Saturday is a big day for the Bulldogs as they'll take on a FCS team that is expected to be better than the one they played last year. Saturday will be the first test for an offensive line that has had trouble on passing the ball. The return almost all of their starting line. This will provide them with a huge advantage over any team in the country.
