Other Aspects to Keep in Mind

Georgia also has a major advantage being that they are returning 13 total starters to this team including 7 on offense, 3 on defense, and 3 special teams members. There are some crucial names amongst those returning starters but none bigger than their senior starting QB, Stetson Bennett. Other names include Kelee Ringo, Nolan Smith, Brock Bowers, and Adonai Mitchell.

Oregon though is dealing with plenty of uncertainty after a troubled offseason with a new coach. Not only did they lose their best defensive player in Kayvon Thibodeaux to the NFL, but several starters transferred out. Those names include DJ James, Logan Sagapolu, Kingsley Suamataia, and most importantly of all, Travis Dye who has 1,271 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns last season.

They also have a new QB in Bo Nix who transferred in from Auburn and has never beaten Georgia in his career going 0-3.
