Georgia’s defense in recent years has been proud to adopt an anonymous label, as the unit continues to rise up the rankings in various statistical categories without a bona fide national star.

The Bulldogs sit at No. 4 this week in total defense following a dominant performance against Auburn where they held the Tigers to 6-of-15 conversions on third down and just 39 rushing yards  — their fewest in a game since LSU in 2018 — in a 27-6 victory. Georgia also made an interception, which snapped Bo Nix’ streak of 253 pass attempts without an interception, which was the second-longest streak in the nation.

ESPN broadcaster Chris Fowler, who called the Auburn-Georgia game, called it the “No Name Defense” and noted the relative lack of NFL draft picks last year or expected next year.

The Bulldogs next test will come at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday against Tennessee in Sanford Stadium. Georgia has won three straight in the series.
