Ole Miss vs. Georgia: Bulldogs' defense striving for consistency

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

The Georgia Bulldogs defense looks to follow up its best performance of the season against the Florida Gators with similarly strong showings to close out the season.

The Georgia Bulldogs defense hopes to build off their best performance of the season in their 17-9 win over the Florida Gators. The Bulldogs held the Gators without a touchdown and forced six turnovers from the Florida offense. Now the Georgia defense hopes it can put up a similar effort for the rest of the season.

Linebacker Amarlo Herrera said the defense has not put up back-to-back strong games this season and it is looking to do so when Georgia hosts Ole Miss on Saturday. Georgia held Vanderbilt without a touchdown in its 48-3 victory on Sept. 22, but followed that game up with a 51-44 win over Tennessee in which the defense had its worst game of the season.

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham told his players that the way they played against Florida is how they should play every game. The Georgia defense has allowed 22.3 points per game on the season.
