Georgia defense praised after another dominant showing in blowout win over UAB
After a competitive game in Week 1, Georgia was on cruise control for its home opener in Week 2.
The Bulldogs improved to 2-0 with a 56-7 win over UAB on Saturday evening at Sanford Stadium in a game that was lopsided from the start. Coming off its impressive victory over Clemson, Georgia took control early and rolled against the Blazers.
The Bulldogs’ defense has still allowed only 3 points this season. And that was a field goal in the fourth quarter of last week’s win over Clemson. UAB’s only points on Saturday came via its own defense, which had an interception return touchdown in the fourth quarter.
While Georgia’s defense still hasn’t allowed any touchdowns, its defense has scored 2 TDs, including a 20-yard interception return score by Jamon Dumas-Johnson in the fourth quarter against the Blazers.
Here’s some of the reaction from social media after Georgia’s latest dominant defensive showing:
Georgia's defense has South Carolina next week and Vandy the week after that.
Um, UGA ain't allowing a touchdown until October.

This has been an impressive, demonstrative blowout of a good team from Georgia as their defense is dominating once again.
Still have some questions tho as their run game still hasn’t really fully shown up yet tho.
