For all the defensive shortcomings on display in the SEC championship game, the bigger topic being discussed around the Georgia program right now comes down to the quarterback position.
Stetson Bennett was intercepted twice in the loss to Alabama, with one of those returned for a touchdown. It’s the second straight season Bennett has quarterbacked a 41-24 loss to the Crimson Tide.
Georgia does have JT Daniels as the backup, but he hasn’t started for Georgia since the win over Vanderbilt. Daniels has dealt with multiple injuries this season, but he’s been healthy enough to play over the final stretch of the regular season. He also entered the season as the unquestioned starter for Georgia and is 7-0 for the Bulldogs when he starts.
The season isn’t over for Georgia, as it faces a staunch Michigan defense. The Wolverines have one of the best pass rushes in the country, led by defensive ends Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo. Hutchinson is a Heisman Trophy finalist.
The Bulldogs will first need to beat Michigan if it is to get a rematch against the Crimson Tide, who take on Cincinnati in the other College Football Playoff semifinal. Georgia will need sharper quarterback play against the Wolverines, regardless of whether it comes from Bennett or Daniels.
