Georgia took care of business at home and defeated Ball State 45-3. The Bulldogs move to 2-0 on the season heading into their Week 3 matchup versus South Carolina at home.



Once again, Georgia got off to a slow start offensively with the new play caller Mike Bobo and new signal caller Carson Beck. 

The Dawgs didn’t score until the 10:16 mark in the second quarter, but scored three touchdowns off of three interceptions. 

Similarly to Week 1, Bobo called a lot of screen passes and didn’t seem to go deep into his playbook. Coaches around the SEC will look for film on this new-look to set up their game plans. Georgia hasn’t really unleashed their offense fully especially with the absences of Ladd McConkey and Daijun Edwards.

The offense still has some ways to go, but overall they had a balanced attack and were affective against a team they were expected to dominate.



The defense created 3 turnovers that all led the Georgia touchdowns. They held the Cardinals to 224 total yards. They weren’t really able to push the ball into the red zone until the very end of the game when the backups were in. 

Malaki Starks played really well for the short time he was in. Ball State attempted to fool the defense with a lot of misdirection early on, but Starks read them really well and seemed to be around the ball every play. He had the first interception of the game early in the second quarter to set up Georgia’s first touchdown.

Javon Bullard (ankle) got hurt on the first defensive drive of the game while making a tackle. He went to the locker room and was ruled out for the rest of the game. He was seen wearing a boot on his leg. The severity of his injury is unknown at this point, but they are hopeful to get him back in time for next week’s game. David Daniel and Dan Jackson are expected to play in his spot if he is absent.


BRIGHT SPOT – Mekhi Mews


Mehki Mews has scored touchdowns in back-to-back weeks for the Dawgs. He continues to show his short-area quickness and his breakaway speed that helps him elude defenders. At 5’8, his low center of gravity helps him slip tackles, and he has great vision in the open field.

Mews scored on a 69-yard punt return touchdown, and had an impressive 47-yard kickoff return today. He’ll continue to be a key weapon for this Bulldogs offense and special teams units.


Offensive Player of the Game: Carson Beck- 23-of-30, 283 yards, 2 TD 1 INT
