Paul Johnson: 'We'll have to play our best game to have a chance'

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson is well aware of what he and his team are up against.

Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson was very complimentary of the Georgia Bulldogs during his Tuesday press conference. He fully recognizes that the Yellow Jackets "have to play [their] best game of the year to have a chance in Athens on Saturday."

Johnson went on to praise the Bulldog offense and its stars, Aaron Murray, Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, and wide receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Tavarres King. But what really has Johnson and the rest of the Georgia Tech coaching staff talking is the Georgia defense.

Johnson was fairly direct when discussing the defense: "I don't think you're going to play anybody with more talent than them." He mentioned Jarvis Jones, Alec Ogletree, Shawn Williams, and Bacarri Rambo by name.

Scoring points has not been a big issue for Georgia Tech this season. The team averages 38.5 points per game, but Georgia will certainly be the toughest defense it faces all season. The Bulldogs are currently favored by 13 points.
