Clemson offensive line vs. Georgia defensive line

Legge breaks down the Clemson offensive line vs. the Georgia defensive front.

Clemson offensive line vs. Georgia defensive line

Georgia's defensive line has plenty of question marks going into the Clemson game. Can Jonathon Sullivan continue his outstanding play while gaining double team attention? Is Robert Geathers ready to make the jump from platoon player to full time starter? And is true freshman Kedric Golston really as good as advertised?

No matter the answers to those questions, there is little doubt about two things: Georgia can stop the run and Georgia is very young.

Clemson, which was not able to effectively pass block for elusive former quarterback, Woody Dantzler, returns only one starter to the offensive line, Gary Byrd. Given that the Tigers allowed a painful 31 sacks last season, any change could be an improvement.

Still, Clemson actually ran the ball better last season than they threw it; due in part to Dantzler. Now that he is gone, the line must give better protection if it plans on having any sort of passing attack at all.

With that said I reluctantly say,

Advantage: GEORGIA
