We are through just one half of football in Charlotte, North Carolina, between Georgia and Clemson. The SI Dawgs Daily Staff brings you our notebook through the first half of play. 

  • Georgia going a mix of east and west running, throwing more screens
  • UGA opens up with play-action early 
  • Both offenses are cutting it close on the play clock. 
  • Both defensive lines dominating the line of scrimmage 
  • Two bad snaps kill a Clemson drive that was keeping into Dawgs territory 
  • Rotating lineman early upfront 
  • Ladd McConkey getting a couple of looks early 
  • Kendall Milton is the most explosive back for Georgia 
  • Georgia linebackers have made several explosive plays on the ball
  • Defensive backs have been consistently in phase
  • Georgia failing to take advantage of opportunities
  • Georgia's defensive line dominating Clemson's offensive line
  • Chris Smith in zone coverage reads DJ's eyes and takes a pick to the house.
  • Pressure is clearly affecting quarterback DJ Uiagalelei; he has made several inaccurate throws under duress.
  • Jordan Davis has been a problem up the middle. Clemson has tried blocking him with multiple linemen to no avail.
  • Kelee Ringo is getting a lot of reps outside and outside of a pass interference call has played a solid game.
  • Adam Anderson is often out of the game on early downs.
  • Uiagalelei hasn't had many opportunities to get outside the numbers; Georgia is collapsing the pocket and forcing him to make quick reads.
  • JT Daniels looks in rhythm but hasn't tried the Tigers downfield yet.
  • Georgia defensive linemen have done a good job getting their hands up and tipping passes at the line of scrimmage.
  • The stadium atmosphere was electric from the opening kick to the end of the first half.
