Georgia’s offense has had no shortage of yards gained in its first three games this season.
It’s had big plays, long touchdowns and plenty of offensive standouts in each matchup. However, offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said the Bulldogs can’t rely on those types of situations against LSU.
“We’ve got to be happy with three- and four-yard runs and take care of the ball, and if we’ve got to punt, we’ve got to punt,” Bobo said. “We don’t want to punt, but let’s not give them a short field either.”
Much like its matchup with Southeastern Conference foe South Carolina, Georgia must wait for its opportunities to open up on offense and not be lured into making costly errors.
“You’ve just got to be patient, and we’ve been preaching patience this whole week a lot like we did the South Carolina week,” Bobo said.
This LSU defense is similar to Tigers’ defensive units of past seasons, and Bobo’s offense is wary of that.
“They run to the ball extremely fast and they hit extremely hard,” Bobo said. “They’re not afraid of getting in your face at the receiver position. It’s going to be a hand-to-hand battle out there and we’ve got to win our fair share.”
