    Watch Washington in this game. Alabama will be focused on Bowers, which will allow Washington to have 4-6 catches and a TD.

    Yep, the TE position has to be one of the most thankless positions in all College Football. OL guys are very frequently talked about and WRs get PLENTY of attention but the great TEs are rarely mentioned. It's been great seeing Bowers and Washington out there!

    THis year in watching our games I sometimes just focus on the TE's on the replay after a big play by our backs whether on a run or a swing pass and out TE's block their you know whats off.

    Yes, Bowers will be double-teamed. He may shake a defender or two and break loose but Saban will cover him. Darnell and Fitz should have very good numbers. Saban will also cover the perimeters, forcing those over the middle plunges. This is easily remedied with quick check downs to Cook, et al, to keep it 3rd and short. Bennett himself can act as a back if need be. He is very fast for a QB. Also, I believe the OL will open up the box. Bama's D is not that great, allowing Cook, Zeus and other of the backs some running room. Saban will try and cover all the bases but his team is just not good enough to back up what he plans. Conversely, UGA is strong on both sides of the ball. They will execute their game plan. I don't believe Bama can hold the Dawgs....they are just not as skilled at player positions. I am not looking through rose-colored glasses either.

    I do look for a wide score margin....UGA by double figures.

    @UGA66 ,

    I doubt Saban double teams Bowers because we have too many other weapons on the field. Double team a guy when no one else scares you. I doubt anyone on their roster can cover a healthy Burton and McConkey one on one all game. AD Mitchell is no joke, neither is JackSaint and the threat of Pickens makes doubling Bowers an insane strategy. Bennett spreads the ball around too much to focus on any single receiver. This is not 2019 or 2020 Bama but I hope you are right.

    UGA will have to be focused and hungry in this game. Even though they are favored to win, they have to remember, they have won 12 games and 11 of them by double digits, they still must prove they are the better team by winning the game, not by almost winning, like Florida, LSU. Arkansas. and Auburn did against Alabama. Go Dawgs!, beat Bama!

    Hey Guys,

    Since this article is about TEs, does anyone know if Arik is still in Athens? Dang, he really missed an opportunity this year at UGA with so many receivers injured. Wishing him the best and hope he one day stars for the Dawgs!
