ATHENS — The Georgia football backfield didn’t rank among the Top 5 in the SEC last weekend, per SEC Network analyst Roman Harper, but Kirby Smart isn’t panicking.
The No. 2 ranked Bulldogs are coming off a tightly-contested 10-3 win over Clemson in Charlotte, N.C., with confidence in their ability to execute in the run game.
“When our offense had to convert, had to force the ball down somebody’s throat, a pretty good defense, they were able to do it and that makes me proud,” Smart said after the win over the Tigers. “But we have a long way to go to get explosive and get where we need to be offensively.”
Georgia might have even further to go depending on the health and status of quarterback JT Daniels, who has been dealing with some soreness and had more limited reps this week.
Coach Kirby Smart has not commented, but UGA players Warren McClendon and Ladd McConkey confirmed that backup quarterback Carson Beck has been getting more work with the ones this week along with Daniels.
