ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Bulldogs know they can't waste
scoring chances when they play at No. 11 LSU on Saturday.
The No. 9 Bulldogs dominated in yards but settled for modest
margins on the scoreboard in wins over Tennessee and Vanderbilt the
last two weeks.
Georgia leads the Southeastern Conference with 429.6 yards per
game, but lately the big yards haven't led to big points totals.
The Bulldogs had 29 first downs against Tennessee. The Vols had
10. Georgia racked up 458 yards in that game and gave up 1 yard
rushing. Yet the final score was 26-14.
The stats and points also didn't match in last week's 24-14 win
over Vanderbilt, when Georgia had a 425-245 advantage in yards but
couldn't put the game away until the final minutes.
Georgia is tied with Florida for the SEC Eastern Division lead
at 3-1, but it hasn't been scoring style points with poll voters.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford says Georgia remains capable of
matching its production in the second half of its 2007 season, when
it scored more than 40 points four times during a seven-game
