Which opponent looks like the biggest potential hurdle on the schedule right now? Our guys weigh in on that.

Cover 4 on UGA football: Which opponent has the best chance at a win?

Let’s get going with the second rep of a UGA football feature called the Cover 4. There are four staffers for DawgNation who cover the team from many angles: Beat, hybrid roles, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The Cover 4 aim is simple: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk one-sentence statement to support that informed opinion. 


Can the Bulldogs win every game on the schedule this year? Sure. The preseason polls universally laud them to be a legit title contender the year after they played for it all.

Will they? Which contest looms as the biggest potential banana peel along the way?


Let’s line up our four DawgNation guys to cover that topic.

Get ready. Here are four takes that come faster than Georgia junior Mecole Hardman Jr. can post on his social media accounts.

Which opponent has the best chance to beat Georgia?

Chip Towers: vs. Auburn, Nov. 10

The 1-sentence why: They are closest in the talent quotient, and the history of this rivalry is to break the other team’s heart.

Jeff Sentell: at LSU, Oct. 13

The 1-sentence why:  Three things pop to mind: 1) They call it Death Valley for a reason; 2) Joe Burrow can boost that offense and 3) All those young Bulldogs will still be wet behind the ears in October.
