Vanderbilt coach James Franklin thinks his defensive line can be more disruptive.
Defensive end Kyle Woestmann believes that Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray could be vulnerable after seeing a different Murray against Missouri when he completed 55.6 percent of his passes, threw two interceptions, was sacked twice and fumbled in a 41-26 loss Saturday.
‚ÄúI think we have a good opportunity to exploit a couple of guys on their O-line that have struggled with some pass rushing moves and that type of stuff this season,‚Äù the redshirt junior told reporters in Nashville, Tenn., on Monday. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre going to try to take full advantage of that. We‚Äôre going to try to get our wild package going and just really wreak havoc from all angles and try to fluster him and make him have to make quick throws and quick decisions and give us a few in the secondary.‚Äù
The 6-foot-3, 252-pound product of Walton High in Marietta, who leads the Commodores with 2 ¬Ω sacks, added of Murray: ‚ÄúHe was a little off target and he was feeling the pressure coming. I think that‚Äôs something that we could easily do and we‚Äôre going to practice hard this week and we‚Äôre going to make it happen on Saturday.‚Äù
Georgia coach Mark Richt said the Bulldogs‚Äô offensive line performed well in run blocking but struggled against Missouri‚Äôs defensive ends in pass protection.
‚ÄúThose ends really came hard and came up the field and had some great speed rush and had some up and under moves and every once in a while, they‚Äôd bull rush you,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúWe did struggle on the edges, mostly in pass pro.‚Äù
