Matchup Preview and Gametime
Depending on who you ask, both of these programs can be considered to be tier-one programs. Both have had recent national championship appearances, with Georgia’s last coming in 2018 and Clemson’s in 2019. Clemson, though, has reached the top of the mountain, whereas Georgia is still looking for its first National Championship in over 40 years.
Clemson went 10-2 last season, with their season ending at the hands of the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Sugar Bowl Playoff Semi-Final. That loss concluded the Trevor Lawerence Era, as he entered the NFL draft and eventually became the No. 1 overall pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars. D.J. Uiagalelei has been named the starter after he showed off his arm against Notre Dame when Lawerence was sidelined due to COVID protocols. D.J. went 29/44, throwing for 439 yards, and two touchdowns.
Georgia went 8-2, with losses to Florida and Alabama, and defeated Cincinnati 24-21 in the Peach Bowl. QB J.T. Daniels took over the team for the last four games of the season and showed exactly what he could bring to the Bulldogs offense and more specifically, the passing game. Georgia will likely be down some star players for their game against Clemson, with WR George Pickens not available and TE Arik Gilbert not being with the team. Along with those, Georgia is doubtful to have TE Darnell Washington and DB Tykee Smith. A full injury report can be found at Dawgnation.com.
The Bulldogs and Tigers will kick off from Charlotte, NC on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at 7:30 pm on ABC.
