Alabama vs. Georgia: Bulldogs must watch out for C.J. Mosley

Mike Zarrilli

Georgia must recognize where star Alabama LB C.J. Mosley is on the field before every play, says Bulldogs' offensive coordinator Mike Bobo.

Among the many challenges that Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will face against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday afternoon, making sure his guys spot Crimson Tide linebacker C.J. Mosley before every play might be one of the biggest.

And for good reason; Mosley, a Butkus Award finalist, has 92 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions and a touchdown this season. That's why Bobo knows his team must keep an eye out for the junior playmaker, as he explained to Dog Bytes Online's Yousef Baig:

"He's an athletic guy that can close space in a hurry. He's a lot like our (Alec Ogletree) in his range on the field. He's a guy you can't squeeze a tight throw into a window. We've just got to know where he is."

Georgia alum Kirby Smart's 3-4 defense will present tough matchups for the Bulldogs' offense, but its not exactly impenetrable, either; Mosley's season-high in tackles came in the Crimson Tide's loss to Texas A&M, one of two games in which Alabama's defense allowed more than 400 yards of offense to its opponent.

The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs will kick off the SEC Championship Game at 4 p.m. ET from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
