What social media is saying after Georgia football win over Texas A&M
The Georgia Bulldogs came away with a 19-13 win in their final home game of the season over the Texas A&M Aggies. The win moves No. 4 Georgia to 10-1 on the year and 7-1 in SEC play.
The defense was largely responsible for the win, as Texas A&M finished with just 274 total yards and -1 rushing yards on the game.
Because of the performance — which also featured 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble — many continued to appreciate how special the Georgia defense has been this season.

Where does this Georgia defense rank among the greats in program history? Has to be top 5?

what if we just put the Georgia defense on the field in place of our offense just to see what happens

Georgia offense makes me a little nervous, but defense wins championships, so I feel a lil better. pic.twitter.com/Mrtqh026wh

Georgia is the only team that I have seen in college football that relies heavily on defense. Offense just gets by. It isn't pretty to watch, and it is aggravating for fans. The only other team similar to GA play is Auburn. Everyone else depends on high scoring offense #UGA

Georgia’s defense was on the field for what felt like the entire second half each of the last two weeks and still held strong. These dudes are unreal 💪🏻

As for the offensive side of the ball, junior running back D’Andre Swift finished with 103 rushing yards in what was likely his final home game for the Bulldogs. Swift showed off an array of moves that caught the attention of many over the course of the game.

A win is a win. Defense is dominant and we have the best RB in the country. See y’all in the dome ‼️ #GoDawgs

D’andre Swift is also the best running back in college football

Takeaways from Georgia’s win over Texas A&M:
– Georgia needs more, and it’s too late to assume that it has it.
– D’Andre Swift is a monster.
– Texas A&M hasn’t progressed. https://t.co/ej9u1Sss8C

Some did notice that Swift got into a spirited argument with Jake Fromm during the closing moments of the game.
— Kevin Boilard (@247KevinBoilard) November 23, 2019
But Smart assured those interested that there was nothing sinister about the argument and that it was just two passionate players talking it out.
“He was just frustrated,” Smart said of Swift. “It wasn’t a great play, but that’s called passion, it’s not a dustup. It’s love. When you have family, your family doesn’t always get along, right? But they love each other. These two young men love each other as much as anybody.”
As positive as fans and pundits were about Swift and the Georgia defense, many were still critical of the group.
Georgia has struggled on offense for much of the year. This is well documented and doesn't need to be re-hashed. Georgia Tech is the perfect "get right" opponent. Hopefully the Dawgs take advantage of it.

Offense definitely has some clicking to do. But I will say Kirby and Georgia want low scoring, control the clock games. Georgia is the UVA basketball of college football. Defense and ball control

As a whole, the Georgia offense finished with just 260 total yards. Fromm finished the game completing 11 of his 23 pass attempts for 163 yards. It was the third straight game Fromm has completed less than 50 percent of his passes. Fromm was also sacked twice on Saturday. But Georgia is also 10-0 on the season when Fromm does not turn the ball over, which was the case on Saturday.
Smart did not mince words about the performance following the game.
“Offensively we’ve got to improve. No bones about it. We’ve got to improve. There were things tonight we missed that were there, and that’s the frustrating thing,” Smart said. “Some of that had nothing to do with the calls. Some of that had to do with the execution. ”
Following the game, a number of current and former Georgia players weighed in with their thoughts on the 19-13 win. It was also senior day for many of the Bulldogs, including fan-favorite Rodrigo Blankenship.
I love this team🖤🎸. Thank You God and thank you DawgNation❤️

@DAndreSwift Is the truth, good work Lil bro 😤

The energy in Sanford Stadium is undoubtedly electric. I wish that wasn’t my last one and if I could go back in time to the beginning and do it again, there isn’t another school I would rather choose. Thank you Dawg Nation for all the great moments this past year! #GoDawgs

The Bulldogs return to action on Saturday, as they visit the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The game is scheduled for a 12 p.m. kickoff in Atlanta. Georgia beat the Yellow Jackets 45-21 when the two teams played last year.
