Georgia vs UAB: 5 reasons why Blazers could keep it close

By Joe Vitale

Georgia is the No. 2 ranked team in America after beating Clemson 10-3 in Charlotte last weekend.

The Georgia defense looked incredible on Saturday, holding the Tigers to just two rushing yards and recording seven sacks and a defensive touchdown on the night.

Offensively, there were some struggles. But it’s important to note that Clemson has the best defense Georgia will likely face all year. It’s also important to note that Georgia was not totally incapable of moving the ball like Clemson was. But there were some concerns.

Georgia now shifts its focus to UAB, its Week 2 opponent. That game is slated for 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2 from Athens.

The Blazers are fresh off a 31-0 win over Jacksonville State, a game they played on Wednesday Sept. 1.

Georgia will win this game, probably by a convincing margin. But here are a few reasons UAB might actually be able to keep things close on Saturday.
