Bulldogs back in pole position

2 mins read

It’s exciting times to be a follower of American Football, with the NFL back in business, pitching the nation’s best and most exciting teams against each other. Only the strongest will survive the onslaught of games planned for between now and the Super Bowl in February.

The deciding match of the season – Super Bowl LVII – will be staged at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday, 12th February. That’s the day we will find out who the strongest side in football is this term.

What if you aren’t a follower of the NFL – American Football’s most popular and best-loved franchise? Does that mean you can only enjoy the sport on television and through the best live-streaming apps offered by your favorite online betting website? Not if you are a lover of College Football, and certainly not if you are a lover of the Georgia Bulldogs, who are ripping up the new season.

Every dog has its day

The Bulldogs have made a flawless start to the campaign, winning each of their opening six games, and with the struggling Vanderbilt Commodores next in town, respected pundits expect the Bulldogs to go 7-0-0. Six out of six is a great start. But seven from seven moves the team from one going well in the early months to one capable of bagging the championship.

What is the secret to the early-season success at Sanford Stadium, and does the team have the steely character needed to go all the way? Will the current pace-setters blaze a trail of glory to the top prize? Only time will tell in what’s certain to be an unforgiving rollercoaster ride for all concerned. But we’re certain football fans wouldn’t have it any other way. We absolutely adore the competitiveness, controversy and rivalries.

Read on as we closely examine their form and upcoming fixtures. This is done with the aim of better preparing our readers for the weeks ahead, improving their chances of making winning predictions when the Bulldogs are in action. There’s a lot to get through, so we won’t waste any more time. Let’s quickly get to kick-off.

Success is nothing new

The Bulldogs isn’t a team known for winning multiple awards and championships. It’s fair to say that their football team has been overshadowed by men’s basketball, tennis, track and field and even golf. The women’s side has found glory multiple times in golf, gymnastics, tennis, swimming and the always-strong track and field. That doesn’t sit right with everyone connected to the Georgia football team, from the players and coaches to the sponsors and fans. Something must change fast.

Respected and recognised titles may be thin on the ground, but starting the season strongly is something Georgia has experience achieving. If they do as expected this coming Saturday and defeat a Commodores team with an uninspiring 3-3-0 record, the Bulldogs will match last season’s efforts of seven-not-out. And that’s looking increasingly possible as we approach the weekend.

We last saw Georgia make it six from six with a thumping victory over the Auburn Tigers at home on Saturday. That was a win and show of strength from the players who waltzed to a jaw-dropping 42-10 result, with most of the damage done in the second and fourth quarters. That result over the Tigers paved the way for the Bulldogs to move back into pole position in the ultra-competitive East Conference.

Leading the race

Bulldogs lead the way, positioned ahead of the Tennessee Volunteers, who are 5-0-0 at the time of writing. As explained, the pace-setters have played six and won six, but they have achieved their best results at home, with a 4-0 advantage against the 2-0 on the road.

Will they continue that winning stretch this weekend against the Vanderbilt Commodores? They are the red-hot favourites to achieve just that. Although we know this level of football is renowned for being unpredictable and throwing up many surprises, it’s understandable to see Georgia attract so much attention from tipsters.

Fans will be more interested in their chances of winning the title and securing a place in the footballing history books. Can they do it? Yes. Will they do it? In the absence of a crystal ball, we like to hope so.
