10. Two balanced offenses square up
Not much can be more fun for fans of two talented teams than watching evenly matched offenses take center stage. For Texas football, the offense is at its best this season when there’s an effective ground game to counter the improved passing game under the direction of sophomore quarterback Sam Ehlinger.
Meanwhile, the Georgia offense is also one that thrives the most when the attack can remain balanced throughout the game. Georgia showed that it can do well in both the ground game and passing game this year, but neither is as effective if the offense is one dimensional. That is a huge similarity between the Dawgs and the Horns on the offensive side of the ball.
Led by sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm, the Georgia offense can be among the most productive in the SEC when there’s a good ground game to offset a solid passing game. Georgia has so many weapons it can use in the receiving corps that it can be fun to watch the rhythm this group gets in at times.
This game could be so tight because of what both offenses bring to the table. Any number of looks could be thrown at each opposing defense and any number of offensive players could step up for each team. The chess match between Texas offensive coordinator Tim Beck and Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney is going to be fun to watch on Jan. 1.
