Georgia routes Middle Tennessee for the third season win – Atlanta Journal Constitution

ATHENS –

Georgia continued his early season dominance Saturday afternoon at Sanford Stadium and added a destruction of Middle Tennessee to his list of one-sided victories.

The No. 3-ranked Bulldogs took a 42-7 lead by halftime and continued to a 49-7 win over the Blue Raiders, an inherited Conference USA team that is paid $ 1.7 million by the UGA Athletic Association for making the trip to Athens.

Georgia has defeated the first three opponents this season with a cumulative margin of 135-24, with a 45-0 win against Austin Peay and a 41-17 win over South Carolina ahead of the Middle Tennessee match.

"We will certainly improve as the season progresses, but I am happy with where we are now," Hardman said. "Regardless of who the opponent is, we are going to play our football, we go out and play how we play."

Squeezed around the impressive victory in South Carolina, Georgia's two victories have come home against teams from outside the "Power 5" conferences.
