Georgia may currently sit atop the Eastern Division standings with a 1-0 record, but aside from a few exceptions mostly involving the kicking game, the Dogs don’t show up very well in the SEC team statistics for the first two weeks of the season.
You can check them all out here, but let’s look at a few of the more notable categories.
First, the good news. Georgia ranks No. 3 in the conference in kickoff returns with an average of 28.8. (This week’s opponent, Arkansas, ranks first with a 57.5 average, but that’s based on just two kick returns while Georgia has had 11.) UGA is No. 2 in punting with a 44.1-yard average, second only to Mississippi State’s 45.4. And the Dogs are tied for first with half the conference in the field goal standings and with nine other schools in PATs. The Dogs also are tied with Ole Miss and Arkansas for first place in red zone offense, with each team having scored on all six of its trips into the zone. They rank fifth in red zone defense.
