Two college football powerhouses will square off on Saturday as the number 5 Georgia Bulldogs take on the number 3 Clemson Tigers.
This is one of the most highly anticipated games of the season. Both of these teams are looking to show their dominance in the 1st week of the season.
Currently, the Tigers are a field goal favorite.
The Bulldogs come into the 2021 season with high expectations. As good of a coach as Kirby Smart is, he needs to show that he can take down the best teams in the nation. He will get that chance when going against Clemson.
Leading this offense will be quarterback JT Daniels. He will be looking to build off what he did a year ago with limited playing time. In 2020 he threw ten touchdowns to only two picks. He enters this season with a very talented supporting cast, which is often the case for a Georgia offense.
A year ago, the defense for this team was quite good. It is expected to be good this year, but they could go through some growing pains as their is quite a bit of new talent. The secondary will be tested right away as they take on Clemson.
A key to this game for the defense will be to get pressure on the Clemson quarterback. The Bulldogs were very good in 2020 at generating pressure andI expect them to do similar things this year as they return lots of their defensive line.
Even with #1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence gone, coach Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers once again have high expectations for 2021.
Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei has big shoes to fill this year. Although he did not get many chances a year ago, he displayed how talented he is. It will interesting to see how how he does as the full time starter.
Another big loss for this team was running back Travis Etienne. At this time, there has been no formal announcement about who the starting running back will be for the game on Saturday.
This team had very few weaknesses a year ago, but one of them was the offensive line. They will look to be better in that area in 2021. It will be tested right away as they go up against a stout Georgia defensive front.
Like a lot of top teams, Clemson is used to playing cupcake games in week 1. This will not be the case as they go up against when one of the top teams in the country on Saturday. They will be tested in a big way against the Dawgs.

The score that I am picking is for Clemson to win by more than 3 points, but that part I am not that confident about. I feel better with the fact that they will just win. I will stay away from the spread and go with the Tigers on the moneyline.
