Kirby Smart will look to lead Georgia to a win on Saturday

WATCH: Going on record with our biggest Georgia football predictions for 2020

After a truly long offseason, the wait for the first Georgia football game of the 2020 season is nearly over as the Bulldogs take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart started the week off by expressing his excitement that Georgia has finally gotten to this point, where there are actual games to speak on.

“I am excited to have game week, that is for sure,” Smart said. “It has been a long time coming and there have been a lot of things that have happened and transpired since we were on the field last for a competitive game. I know our guys are excited. We saw a lot of excitement out Saturday and Friday when we started to work on our Arkansas prep.

“Our players are excited, I am excited, our coaches are excited.”

The Bulldogs are heavy favorites to beat the Arkansas Razorbacks, who are coached by former Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman. Arkansas will also likely be quarterbacked by Feleipe Franks, the former Florida quarterback.

With the dawn of a new season officially upon us, the members of the DawgNation team —Connor Riley, Jeff Sentell, Mike Griffith and Brandon Adams — discuss the Week 1 game as well as some of the season-long goals and statistical benchmarks.
