Georgia football-Samford live updates, week 2 match practice notes

11 a.m., September 5 update: After destroying the Oregon Ducks last weekend, the No. 3 Georgia will have its home opener Saturday against the Samford Bulldogs. Both teams are coming off opening week victories, as Georgia won 49-3, while Samford beat Kennesaw State.

Georgia was an offensive juggernaut in the win over the Ducks with 571 yards of offense. The Bulldogs won mostly through the air, as quarterback Stetson Bennett threw for a career-high 368 yards.

The beauty of Georgia’s offense is that this week the Bulldogs could build on their running game. Or just re-run it to push the negative recruiting narrative even further.

“We want people who want to come and play in this offense, and I think when you look at what they did today, if you look from home, you say, man, I would love to play in this offense” , Kirby Smart said on Saturday. “They throw the ball, they throw it, 30 for 37 for how many yards? I don’t know, but he threw the ball very well. Passes, he threw a lot of passes for a lot of yards. I think it’s an honor for the offensive personnel or the planning they had.

The Samford game should give Georgia the chance to face a number of young players as the Bulldogs are an FCS foe. Samford scared Florida last season as the Gators cruised to a 70-52 victory.

Georgia started freshman Mykel Williams on defense against Oregon, while freshman safety Malaki Starks played the game with a bouncing interception on a Bo Nix pass.

Expect even more first- and second-year players, such as Brock Vandagriff and Branson Robinson, to see plenty of runs in the game against Samford.

It will also be Georgia’s first home game since winning the national championship last season. The game is scheduled to kick off at 4 p.m. ET, with the SEC Network broadcasting the game
