No. 5 Georgia gets ready to defend spread option

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, GA (AP) -

Cornerback Sanders Commings says that No. 5 Georgia has done a good job of bringing respectability back to its defense.

The Bulldogs allowed just 19 total points in their last three games and clinched the SEC East title last week at Auburn, but their defense is hardly looking forward to facing the next two opponents.

Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech both use a spread option offense that relies on cut blocks -- a legal, below-the-waist technique that tries to get defenders on the ground quickly so ball-carriers can exploit open space.

Commings says that practicing for a spread option offense is no fun, but he adds that there's no use in complaining about it.

Georgia (9-1) hosts Georgia Southern (8-2) on Saturday. Georgia Tech visits Sanford Stadium next week.
