Bulldogs click in five-wide-receiver set

Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo surprised quarterback Aaron Murray early last week when he went to a meeting room board and wrote player numbers 17, 15, 82, 12 and 26.

Murray wondered if it was the receiver depth chart. He was told it was Georgia’s new formation.

“I was like, ‘Oh, my goodness,’” Murray said.

Five-receiver sets are just the latest offensive wrinkle for the Bulldogs.

“I don’t think anybody in Georgia history has ever seen that before,” Murray said.

Bobo said he can’t remember going with five wides dating back to his playing days in the 1990s. Murray said Georgia used it about a half dozen times Saturday.



Bennett’s second touchdown catch last Saturday came out of the formation.

“We just have a lot of playmakers at receiver, and with Malcolm (Mitchell) coming over, we just want to get everyone on the field to help make plays,” Bennett said. “It’s just another dimension to our offense that defenses have to key in on.”
