Buffalo Vs. Georgia Reaction: Dawg Sports Analyzes UGA Win

UGA fans are likely to come away from the Bulldogs' season-opening win against Buffalo the same way the fan of an NFL team would come away from a preseason victory -- overly analytic, but not too concerned with what they saw.

The good folks at Dawg Sports would tell you as much. The Dawgs won 45-23 on Saturday. And to add, they converted 50 percent of their third downs, did not turn the ball over, lost just 22 yards to penalties, generated 485 yards of total offense, averaged almost six yards per carry and nearly ten yards per pass and never trailed (not that they should have).

Here's some analysis from T Kyle King of Dawg Sports:

Some of the ‘Dawgs did have pretty good days, of course. Damian Swann, whose leadership was needed in a depleted secondary, did a good job in the defensive backfield. Tavarres King overcame Aaron Murray's early overthrows to lead all Georgia receivers with six catches for 117 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown reception. John Theus looked good as a first-time first-teamer before he left the game with a worrisome ankle injury. (Fortunately, Theus says he's all right.) Todd Gurley dazzled in his debut, tallying a trio of touchdowns in the course of racking up 100 rushing yards on eight carries and another 127 yards on a pair of kickoff returns, one of which went the distance. Taken as a series of discrete elements, there were a lot of things to like about this afternoon's game.
