3 & OUT REPORT - UGA vs. ARKANSAS
Updated: Oct 1, 2021
During game week the staff at Dawg News Daily previews the matchup between the Bulldogs and their opponent. We focus in on 3 key position matchups or players that we believe will be the difference makers in Saturdays game.
DAWG NEWS DAILY'S 3 & OUT REPORT:
1) Jamaree Salyer Vs. Tre Williams
Arkansas' Defensive End Tre Williams is coming off maybe his best game of the season where he earned SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Williams created havoc in Arkansas' 20-10 win over No. 7 Texas A&M, recording 4 tackles, 2.0 sacks and three quarterback hurries. Tre Williams has 21 quarterback pressures for Arkansas this season. Now onto Left tackle Jamaree Salyer. Salyer has played out of position most of the year at Left Tackle. His size has him more likely at Guard. But he is trusted by the staff and has done a great job at Tackle. Salyer faced 2 probable NFL first round picks against Clemson and did not allow a sack from either Myles Murphy or Bryan Breese. As a matter of fact, the UGA starting offensive tackles have not allowed a quarterback pressure through four games. If Georgia can keep JT Daniels "clean" then expect for it to be a long day for the HAWGS, If not.. This game could be closer than Vegas expects.
2) Arkansas OT vs. UGA PASS RUSH
Arkansas has 2 mountain of men for their offensive tackles. RT Dalton Wagner Stands at 6'9 and 330lbs and left tackle Myron Cunningham is 6-6, 325-pounds. Both are the size Sam Pittman recruited while here at UGA. Typically, The bigger the tackles, the slower the feet. That's not a good combination when facing the Rush from Georgia. Nolan Smith, Adam Anderson, and Nakobe Dean lead the defense in Sacks and QB Hurries while Big #99 Jordan Davis demands a double team on the inside. The Hogs could be in the same fate that every team has faced against the Bulldogs front seven this season.
3) Arkansas RB Trelon Smith Against UGA's Run Defense
Arkansas' Rushing attack is led by Smith, who has rushed for 298 yards and three touchdowns, the Razorbacks rank second in the SEC with 262 yards rushing per game. Georgia leads the SEC and ranks sixth in the nation with its average of 66 yards allowed on the ground. Keys to the run defense include defensive linemen Jordan Davis, Jalen Carter and Devonte Wyatt.

Georgia 24-10 (Line: Georgia -18)
