Way-too-Early Clemson-UGA, Preview and Predictions
What: UGA vs. Clemson
Where: Clemson, SC
When: Aug. 31 2013, Time: TBA, TV: TBA
This should be a premier game on Labor Day Weekend. It should be nationally televised as the nation will be watching. Clemson will be losing a few elite players to the NFL in RB Andre Ellington and WR DeAndre Hopkins, but the Tigers shouldn't drop off too much as they return offensive weapons in Senior QB Tajh Boyd and WR Sammy Watkins. They had a great season, but I didn't know they were truly legit until they defeated #8 LSU in the Chick-fil-a Bowl, 25-24, in Atlanta by a field goal with the final seconds expiring. Now granted, I don't know if LSU was prepared for that game, but beating SEC power LSU is an accomplishment in itself. Clemson will be ready and their fans will be pumped as it will probably be a night game in Death Valley. The Clemson offense is lethal, and Georgia does not need to give them a lead early because they can pour it on. Georgia is returning one of the best offenses in the nation led by Senior QB Aaron Murray, Sophomore RB Todd Gurley, and the Bulldogs' deep recieving corps. Georgia has lost a bunch of starters on D, but they have good depth and have some talented underclassmen. Sometimes, Georgia is not completely at its best early in the season, but UGA will be prepared and will look to make a statement in its first game of the season.
Georgia 45- Clemson 32
