Alabama Week: Kendall's Three Keys Revisited

TUSCALOOSA - Josh Kendall's rreviews his three keys to Georiga's game with Alabama.

Georgia 26, Alabama 23

Start fast

Georgia took the opening kickoff and went 70 yards in 10 plays to take a 7-0 lead, and that served two factors. First, it settled down the Alabama crowd for a half, but, more importantly, it gave the offense confidence it could move the ball.

Win the turnover battle

It’s very rare to go on the road in the SEC and give your opponent two extra possessions on turnovers and still win, but Georgia did just that. That doesn’t mean they should get in the habit of doing it. Both giveaways, interceptions thrown by Matthew Stafford, came at times when Georgia was on the verge of putting the game away.

Stop Terry Grant

The SEC’s second-leading rusher averaged 7.3 yards per carry so that can hardly be considered a stop. The good news for the Bulldogs is Grant had only 11 carries. Inexplicably, he got only four carries in the first half.
