Ole Miss Vs. Georgia: Alec Ogletree trying to make up for lost time

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Alec Ogletree is trying to make up for lost time after missing games because of injuries and suspensions.

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Alec Ogletree is trying to make up for lost time on the field of play. After missing six games last year with a broken bone in his foot, he was suspended for an undisclosed reason for four games this season. Since he has returned to the lineup, he has recorded 39 tackles, nine more than any other player on the Bulldogs roster.

While he has not been as dominant as coaches would like, he did lead the team in tackles with 14 against the Tennessee Volunteers and 11 against the Kentucky Wildcats and is tied for the team lead with five passes defended. Both defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and head coach Mark Richt both thought his performance against the Florida Gators last week was his best game of the season, according to an interview with Marc Weiszer:

"I thought this game against Florida was his best game by far of playing downhill and facing the issue like a good middle linebacker does," Richt said.

Olgetree and the Bulldogs play the Mississippi Rebels at Sanford Stadium on Saturday with kickoff scheduled for 3:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on CBS.
