Gary Danielson compares Georgia to 2019 LSU team
Georgia is the new No. 1 team in the country after Alabama lost last week.
Now, the Bulldogs face a tough test, as No. 11 Kentucky comes to town on Saturday for a battle of SEC East unbeaten squads.
Ahead of the matchup, CBS analyst Gary Danielson, who will be calling the game, spoke with Kentucky.com and compared the Bulldogs to the 2019 LSU Tigers:
“They are a really focused, hungry team this year,” Danielson said. “They remind me of the 2019 LSU team. …
“It’s not a surprise,” Danielson said. “Georgia has always recruited at a high level. Kirby has brought the structure of developing a little bit more and even in the way they recruit, they’re a little more solid in projecting the type of player that fits their system.”
In fact, the current Bulldogs remind Danielson of Alabama’s athletes. “There are probably seven, eight, nine NFL players on that defense,” he said.
Can Georgia live up to that lofty comparison? Through 6 games, the Bulldogs have allowed only 33 points, which is simply incredible. We’ll see if that dominance continues on Saturday afternoon.
The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time and you can hear Danielson and Brad Nessler on the call on CBS.
