Georgia Defeated Oregon, 27–17, In College Football News
How much do you trust the Oregon quarterbacks, Bo Nix or Kenny Dillingham? asks Pete Fiutak. Stetson Bennett has experience dealing with fire-breathing defenders, so it’s unlikely that new head coach Dan Lanning, the former defensive coordinator at Georgia, won’t have his unit ready to go from the get-go.
He doesn’t need to be extraordinary. He simply needs to pick his battles, find his incredible tight ends on third down, and keep the clock as low as he can. The remainder will be handled by the Dawg defence.
Although there will be opportunities for the offensive to take control, Oregon will bring the fight, so it won’t be able to. Although Georgia will get ahead early and use their national championship power when necessary in the second half, this won’t be a complete rout.

Writer Dylan Mickanen says: “I don’t anticipate a victory parade in Eugene when the Dan Lanning era begins against his former team in the heart of Georgia. Although I have high hopes for Lanning’s tenure as Oregon’s head coach, it would be unfair to judge him solely on his first game.
The Ducks will still be significantly outmatched despite remarkable recruitment results under previous head coach Mario Cristobal. The defending National Champions will have an advantage at almost all positions.”

As Brad Crawford puts it: “The scheduling gods occasionally have a premonition and a future game is a surefire winner. In a historic first game, the defending national champions Georgia and Oregon face off against each other’s previous defensive coordinator, Dan Lanning, for the second time ever.
During his stint, he played a key role in helping Kirby Smart’s school dominate the recruiting landscape with a lot of five-star prospects, and he is attempting to do the same with the Ducks. Bo Nix, a former quarterback for Auburn, is vying to start for Oregon and is a fan of the Bulldogs.”

Writing as Nick Battey: “Georgia is a big favourite in this game, and for good reason—after all, they are the reigning champions. Although I think Oregon will play Georgia, an SEC club, closely for the majority of the game, I don’t think they’ll have enough to last the full 60 minutes.”

As Max Torres puts it: “To build confidence and provide the groundwork for the rest of the playbook, a good run game will be essential, but few teams run the ball well against Georgia. It’s difficult to make a confident prediction for this game.
All we’ve seen is a spring game. Before finally losing, the Ducks’ competitiveness in this game should have been aided by Dan Lanning’s knowledge of Georgia, Oregon’s roster’s evolution, and the Ducks’ strong culture.”

Writes Jason Radowitz “On the offensive side, Oregon will have many transfers, so it might take some time for the team to gel. Last season, Georgia’s defence was outstanding. This year, it will be challenging to repeat that. Georgia will win this game by a large margin, but, if they come close. The SEC is by far the best.”
