    The #12 and #9 teams, respectively, face off this to start the season in a power conference showdown. Coach Fuzzy was not happy with the scheduling committee when he was made aware of his week 1 opponent. Preparing his squad for the speed of Oregon's offense is not an easy task, however they have been prone to week 1 meltdowns in the past.​
    Offensively for the Bulldogs HB Jeff Bonner will be the focal point of the offense while Georgia continues to rebuild. Bonner's combination of speed and power may give the Bulldogs a good chance at slowing down the game and keeping Oregon off the field. The Bulldogs are more than capable of passing the ball if needed, however. WRs Garrison and Ryan are both excellent possession receivers, perfect fits for the pro-style offense. Georgia's defense might be too much for the Ducks. They boast an extremely talented front-7 and an even better secondary.​
    Oregon will be airing it out on offense as always, but this season they lack any explosive weapons through the air. Their biggest threat is probably the legs of their QB Schneider who could cause some trouble for the Bulldogs if they are too worried about the pass. The Oregon defense is where the game is going to be decided. They are very solid up front on defense, but the linebackers and secondary are mid-major level. I also don't see their ends and LBs being able to contain Bonner outside of the tackles.​
    My Pick: Georgia by 21. Oregon's defense is just too full of holes to keep up in this one, especially without any explosive talent on offense. Still, their no huddle spread will keep them in the game for the first half.​
