FAU Vs. Georgia: Four Wide Receiver Sets Working For Bulldogs

With a lot of depth at wide receiver, the Georgia Bulldogs debuted a new offensive look in their second game of the season against Missouri: The spread, four wide receiver set.

Heading forward, and starting with the Bulldogs' game against Florida Atlantic on Saturday, the four wide receiver set should become more prevalent in Georgia's offense, according to a report in The Macon Telegraph.

"With the success we've had with the spread, going four-wide, I think we're gonna get a lot more opportunities to play it," wide receiver Chris Conley told The Telegraph. "The more comfortable that [offensive coordinator Mike] Bobo gets with it, the more we've been running it in practice. We've been practicing it pretty heavily. So hopefully we'll get the opportunity to make those plays, and as long as we're still making them I think we'll still get some shots at it."

Through two games, Georgia's wide receivers have shown promise. Michael Bennett, Marlon Brown, Tavarres King and Rantavious Wooten have combined for 32 catches, 477 yards and six touchdowns in the Bulldogs' first two weeks of the season.

"We kind of experimented with it a little bit at first, and then in practice we started making plays," Brown told The Telegraph in regards to the four wide receiver set. "All of us started making plays at the same time, so we just kept it in."
