Georgia Football unleashes new offense behind Stetson Bennett

Georgia football finally got to unveil their new offense against the Oregon Ducks

All the noise during the offseason was how much Georgia football lost in the NFL Draft. They lost seven defensive starters and two starters on offense. However, none of that seemed to matter in a 49-3 route of number 12 Oregon.

Todd Monken’s genius was on full display for all to see in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon. His offense racked up 571 yards on 62 total plays, averaging 9.21 yards per play. Georgia only punted one time and they scored on drives of less than ten plays six times.

Georgia football scored on their opening drive. In fact, with Bennett behind center, Georgia would score a touchdown on their first six possessions. The most exciting one being when Stetson Bennett did his best Houdini impression before hitting Ladd McConkey in the endzone.

Take a look:

Bennett finished the game completing 25 of 31 attempts (80.6%) for 368 yards, two passing touchdowns, and a rushing touchdown. He also averaged 11.9 yards per passing attempt. His 201.7 quarterback rating shows just how efficient he was.

However, Bennett’s leading receiver wasn’t a wide receiver or tight end. Kenny McIntosh, starting running back for Georgia, lead all receivers with 117 yards on nine catches. Quite the debut in his first game starting. He also added 18 rushing yards on five carries and added a rushing touchdown.

Georgia football running back Kendall Milton led all rushers with 50 rushing yards on eight carries averaging 6.3 yards per carry. Milton added a rushing touchdown, 18 receiving yards, and a receiving touchdown. Team KM² hit the ground running, pun intended.

Other notable offensive players for Georgia football were McConkey who had 73 yards receiving and two touchdowns and AD Mitchell who had 65 receiving yards and a touchdown. Georgia was spreading the ball around and getting everyone involved.

If Georgia football gets this kind of execution from its offense week in and week out they can score with anyone. This offense could be their ticket to another College Football Playoff appearance and even a repeat as champions. Time will tell.
