Week 2 college football sees the UAB Blazers and Georgia Bulldogs meet at Sanford Stadium.
The Georgia Bulldogs look to maintain focus after defeating Clemson 10-7 in week 1 action. That win bumps UGA into early national powerhouse discussions.
Meanwhile, defending C-USA champion UAB recently blanked Jacksonville State 35-0 and now eyes a major upset.
Georgia opens with commanding -27.5 odds. The thinking is UGA will replicate its offensive success from late 2020 when TJ Daniels emerged. Although, that theory becomes complicated by Georgia’s lax week 1 scoring effort, and the defensive strength of UAB.
The Blazers return most of their 2020 roster which finished 6-3 and stood among the best Group of Five programs. Defense paved the way for that success as UAB held opponents at 21.4 ppg via excellent secondary pressure and solid run defense.
Offensively, the Blazers worked behind steady doses of QB’s Bryson Lucero, Tyler Johnson III, and lead rusher Spencer Brown. Unfortunately, Brown graduated and left a 10 TD, 4.8 yard per carry void.
However, Tyler Johnson’s return has paid immediate dividends. The senior field general carved Jacksonville State for 17 of 21 passing, two touchdowns and 320 yards. Wideouts Trea Shropshire, Gerrit Prince, and Rajae Johnson-Sanders emerged as prime downfield options, each hauling one touchdown. Jermaine Brown Jr. and Dewayne McBride lifted a committee ground effort as Brown Jr. led with 78 yards and a score.
Defensively, UAB held J’Ville State to 154 total yards on an evening marked by all around dominance. Blazers safety Dy’john Tuener recorded a team-high six tackles to gift wrap the clean, 35-0 UAB shutout.
Georgia showed Saturday it hasn’t left the national title hunt it entered in 2017 vs. Alabama. The Bulldogs emerged a 10-3 week 1 road winner over no. 3 Clemson. Time and again, red hats swarmed the Tigers backfield to drop soph. D.J. Uiagalelei. Georgia recorded seven sacks and eight tackles for loss to enable Chris Smith’s pick-six to end matters and stoke the yearly ‘Alabama or UGA?’ discussion.
It goes without saying that TJ Daniels will find life much easier vs. UAB. Daniels managed possessions well enough to allow the defensive blitz against Clemson. However, the former five-star recruit is expected to reclaim his 2020 form this week.
Expect Daniels to find his NFL-prospect laden recieving core vs. overmatched UAB. Brock Bowers and Jaylen Johnson will do most of the heavyy lifting, but UGA should flash its downfield presence as running backs Zamir White and James Cook unload.
The Georgia defense could be the nation’s best. UAB has a long day ahead when Bulldog pass rushers create havoc.

Saturday’s line is manageable at home for UGA.
4* Free Week 2 NCAA Betting Pick:
I like TJ Daniels to break free at Sanford versus solid mid-major competition. On the other side, it’s hard right now to picture UAB having any offensive success vs. Georgia. A late touchdown or field goal is likely to be the Blazer’s only score this Saturday.
Take Georgia by a landslide.
