College football fans shocked at Georgia's performance vs. Kent State
The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Kent State Golden Flashes 39-22 Saturday in Sanford Stadium. It wasn’t pretty much of the afternoon for Georgia. Kent State entered a 45-point underdog.
The game was even closer than the final score indicated, too.
Georgia and its fans will likely be frustrated and concerned about the performance. Noon games are always tough, though, and Georgia made it tough on themselves Saturday. Entering Week 4, Georgia had given up just 10 points through 3 games. It gave up 22 points Saturday vs. Kent State.
Kent State successfully completed a fake punt (like South Carolina did last week), and Georgia’s offense coughed the ball up 3 times. Ladd McConkey muffed a punt and fumbled after a catch and run, and Stetson Bennett threw a bad interception. All of the turnovers happened in the first half, as Georgia turned it around in the second to seize control.
Still, this game will concern some, and college football fans weighed in on social media following Georgia’s victory.
Georgia giving up 22 points to Kent State with almost a full quarter to go is pretty shocking. last year Georgia gave up 23 points in the entire month of September.

Let’s put those “this Georgia defense is better than last year’s” takes to bed.

Georgia’s defensive line will likely run enough laps to make the earth’s rotation reverse this week.

Oklahoma is officially better than Georgia.

You can remove Georgia vs Kent State from the upset watch. But it was a great game from the Golden Flashes who have scored more points than anyone against Georgia in the regular season since 11/21/20.
