Jarvis Jones closing in on UGA sack record

Scott Cunningham

With two sacks, Jarvis Jones will pass David Pollack on the single-season sack record at Georgia.

Former Georgia defensive lineman David Pollack will be in the booth as a broadcaster, watching his alma mater New Year's Day in the Capital One Bowl. Pollack might also get to watch one of his Bulldogs records go down firsthand, as Jarvis Jones could break his single-season sacks record.

Jones has 12.5 sacks on the season, just 1.5 away from Pollack's single-season record of 14, which he set in 2002. Pollack told the Athens Banner-Herald it'd be a pleasure to watch Jones break his record:

"There are a lot of worse guys in the world that I would not want to break my record, but Jarvis is a quality human being and if he breaks it, it would not bother me in the slightest," Pollack said.

Jones had a shot at breaking the record last year, as well. He entered the Outback Bowl with 13.5 sacks on the year, but he was shut out in the sack department. He has 26 in two seasons at Georgia, but likely won't reach Pollack's career mark of 36. Jones is expected to leave school early and be a high NFL Draft pick.

He said it'd be an honor to pass Pollack for the single-season mark:

"Just to be even within reaching that sack record here at the University of Georgia, so many great players have come and did so much for this school, it's a great accomplishment for me," Jones said. "If I get it, I'm going to tell David thanks. It would be wonderful, man."
