Dawgs beat Tech: Three Keys Revisited

Dawgs beat Tech: Three Keys Revisited

ATLANTA - Josh Kendall's review of the three keys to Georgia's game with Georgia Tech.

1. Travis Bell vs. Brandon Coutu: It was a low scoring game where a kicker could make a difference. But neither could. Both missed 47-yard field goals that would've given their respective team a lead. Bell missed his fourth straight field goal and is know 10-of-20 on the season. Coutu, a Lou Groza Award semifinalist, had made four field goals in the Bulldogs' last two games, including a 56-yarder against Kentucky.

2. D.J. Shockley vs. the Tech pass rush: Shockley had a great deal of time on a number of crucial passing attempts in the second half. He had plenty of time to find Mario Raley and Bryan McClendon on the game's penultimate drive. One of Tech's three sacks came in the fourth quarter.

3. Keep emotions in check: Both teams appeared to behave themselves during the game. There were the normal outbursts towards the officials from coaches and players and the normal smack-talking that goes with a rendition of "Clean Old Fashioned Hate."
