Georgia Tech vs. Georgia: Todd Grantham pleased with defense's effort

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham was happy with the team's defensive effort against Georgia Tech, and is looking forward to facing off against Alabama.

Georgia Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham spoke with the media after the Dawgs' 42-10 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. He spoke about his defense's performance against the Yellow Jackets, and also having a shot to go against Alabama next weekend.

Regarding Georgia giving up 426 total yards to Georgia Tech, Grantham was not overly concerned:

"I thought our guys dominated the game. There was a lot of meaningless yards there in the second half being picked up. They had three points going against the first group, and the best thing to do was to get those guys out of the game because we’ve got big things to do next week."

In spite of all the yards they picked up, Georgia Tech only scored 10 points. The Bulldog defense forced several turnovers deep within their own territory after sustained Georgia Tech drives early in the game, before really putting the clamps down and blowing the game open.

Regarding the Bulldogs' upcoming matchup against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game:

"We’ve got a shot. That’s why you play the game. That’s why you do what you do. We’re one game away from playing for the national championship. Obviously we’re going to play a good team. They’ve got good players, good coaches. But we’ll be ready."

The Dawgs and Tide did not play each other this season. In fact, the two teams haven't played each other since 2008, when Alabama beat Georgia 41-30 in Athens. The two teams face off at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, Dec. 1st.
