Featured Game | Georgia Bulldogs vs. TCU Horned Frogs

Why Georgia can cover

Georgia excels in the red zone on both sides of the ball. On offense, the Bulldogs score on 97.4% of their possessions that reach the 20-yard line (52 touchdowns and 23 field goals on 77 possessions), which leads the country. On defense, Georgia allows opponents to score on just 66.7% of possessions, which also leads the nation.

In addition, the Bulldogs have a dominant defensive lineman in Jalen Carter. A 6-foot-3, 300-pound junior who’s widely regarded as a top-three pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, Carter has 25 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, three sacks and a pair of forced fumbles in the last seven games alone. For his efforts this season he was named a finalist for the Lombardi Award. See which side to back at SportsLine.

Why TCU can cover

TCU has one of the best offenses in the country. Led by quarterback Max Duggan and top NFL prospect Quentin Johnston at receiver, the Horned Frogs rank fifth in the nation in scoring offense (41.1 points per game). On Monday they face a struggling Georgia defense that has given up 35.5 points a game over its last two games.

In addition, the Bulldogs offense may be shorthanded on Monday night. Tight end Darnell Washington is uncertain to play because of an ankle injury suffered in the semifinal win over Ohio State. The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Washington (6-7, 265) ranks fourth on the team with 426 receiving yards on 27 receptions and gives Georgia a dangerous two-tight-end set, with all-America Brock Bowers. See which side to back at SportsLine.
