Georgia defenders want to 'punish' Notre Dame on Saturday night
The Georgia Bulldogs have one of the biggest matchups of Week 2, traveling to South Bend, Indiana, to take on Notre Dame.
Coming off a season-opening win over Appalachian State, the Bulldogs are feeling good and are confident in their ability to pull off a big road win.
On Tuesday, S Dominick Sanders told Macon.com that he wants the Georgia defense to come out and “punish” the Fighting Irish offense early and often:
“I don’t really know anything about them,” Sanders said. “My main thing is coming out and punishing them from the start. I don’t really care about what they got going on.”
DE Jonathan Ledbetter echoed his teammate’s sentiments, saying he thinks this is a statement game for the Bulldogs’ defensive unit:
“I know everybody’s itching to get a lick on every single one of their guys,” Ledbetter said. “We definitely respect them, but good competition is hard to come by. When you see it and everyone’s raving about it, you want to prove a point. We’re ready to prove a point.”
Georgia and Notre Dame are scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday night. The game can be seen on NBC.
