In his third year with the Bulldogs, Monken has the Bulldogs near the top of the national rankings yet again: Red Zone Offense (1st – 98 percent), Fourth Down Conversion (2nd – 89 percent), Total Offense (3rd – 514.2 mpg), Sacks Allowed (4th – .78/g), Third Down Conversion (6th – 53 percent), First Down Offense (6th – 235), Time of Possession (34:33), Passing Offense (10th – 320.2 ypg) and Scoring Offense (40.1 ppg). With these performances, Georgia has compiled a 9-0 record and is the top-ranked team in the land. The Bulldogs returned seven starters, including quarterback Stetson Bennett who is now in his third year under Monken’s tutelage. Bennett has completed 67.8 percent of his passes (198-for-292) for 2,606 yards and 11 touchdowns with only three interceptions. In addition, Monken has included Bennett’s elusive running style into the offense as his quarterback has six rushing touchdowns on the year, including a 13 yarder against No. 1 Tennessee that gave Georgia the lead for good in the opening quarter. In addition, Monken has incorporated arguably the nation’s top tight end tandem as the duo has racked up 53 catches for 906 yards.
