Georgia defensive end Demarcus Dobbs said he knew which way Tennessee was going to run the ball "80 percent of the time" based on alignments and formations the team studied in video sessions.
The numbers reflect Dobbs’ proclamation — linebacker Rennie Curran made similar remarks — as the Volunteers rushed for 1 yard in Tennessee’s 26-14 loss to No. 10 Georgia. In last year’s meeting, Tennessee gained 190 yards on the ground.
"Watching film was a huge part (of stopping the run)," Dobbs said. "We did some thorough video sessions and watched film and picked up on a couple of traits that gave away what they were going to do."
Dobbs said the Bulldogs noticed whether Tennessee lined up its fullback inside or outside and if the tight end moved to the backfield. He also said the alignment of tackles Chris Scott and Ramon Foster tipped off the direction of the run.
