Make tackles. The Bulldogs' defense allowed LSU to turn too many short gains into big plays with poor tackling in the second half. Florida's speed demons like Percy Harvin and Chris Rainey are threats to break a big one any time they get into space, so Georgia's defenders need to focus on bringing them down on first contact. The best way to negate Florida's speed, linebacker Rennie Curran said, is to take good angles to the ball and make sure they bring down the runner with the first hit.
Win on special teams. Last week, Florida blocked two punts against Kentucky that led to scores. Meanwhile, the Gators' dangerous return man Brandon James has returned two punts this season for touchdowns. In all, Florida ranks fifth in the nation, averaging more than 20 yards per return. It will be up to Bulldogs punter Brian Mimbs to get his punts off before Florida gets pressure, then have enough hang time that Georgia can make the tackle before James breaks a big run.
