Georgia takes its No. 2 overall ranking back to the Classic City to face off with UAB in Week 2.
After a thrilling rock fight up in Charlotte, the Georgia Bulldogs will make their triumphant return to the Classic City to take on the UAB Blazers for their home opener.
Though it was not a pretty showing in the Duke’s Mayo Classic vs. Clemson, Georgia put forth a herculean effort defensively to keep the Tigers out of the end zone all night. While the Dawgs were unable to score an offensive touchdown themselves, they are hoping for several trips to pay dirt when Bill Clark’s feisty UAB program comes to town. You will not want to miss this ballgame.
Here is what you need to know when the Dawgs tee it up Between the Hedges vs. the Blazers.

Georgia vs UAB Prediction Week 2
While the same strong Georgia defense will be ever-present vs. UAB on Saturday, we will see the offense make up for last week’s underwhelming showing. Expect for Zamir White and the ground game to take over the game early in the first half. Quarterback JT Daniels will have a nice bounce-back game, as he will throw for his first three touchdowns of the season to cover the point spread.
Prediction: Georgia 42, UAB 17
