How they stack up: Offensive line

Offensive Line
Edge Even

The Bulldogs gained valuable experience in week one with Justin Malone playing the vast majority of the game replacing Tobias Smith after the first series of the game. However this will be the first true test for the Bulldogs and they’ll be facing one of the better defensive fronts in the SEC. But it should be noted State didn’t allow a sack in week one.

This battle will likely come down to how well Blaine Clausell will be able to handle the quickness off the edge the Tigers plan to bring to the party this afternoon.

The Tiger have youth across the board up front. With freshmen and redshirt freshmen that will see significant playing time at both tackle and guard it will be interesting to see how they handle Denico Autry off the edge and Josh Boyd up the middle.

Since both teams have issues along the offensive line and both had solid defensive fronts … the advantage for this group is a draw.
