SAM PITTMAN – (HEAD COACH) Pittman returns to Athens for the first time as the head coach of the Razorbacks. He was Georgia’s offensive line coach for four seasons and eventually became the associate head coach under Kirby Smart. Pittman was an integral part of why Georgia was able to start recruiting so well and develop offensive line talent during his four seasons. Now, he has Arkansas playing their best football in quite some time. The Razorbacks are 4-0 and are coming off of a huge win against Texas A&M in Dallas. Even though he will be the opponent on Saturday, expect Pittman to get some cheers from the Georgia faithful.
KJ JEFFERSON (QB #1) – Jefferson left the Hogs’ win over Texas A&M with an apparent knee injury, but eventually returned. He’s one of the bigger quarterbacks you will ever see, weighing 245 pounds. He’s a true dual threat quarterback, leading Arkansas in passing and is the team’s second leading rusher. His ability to move out of the pocket and use designed quarterback runs fooled the Aggies defense. Now, Jefferson will have to duplicate that performance against one of the best fronts in college football.
TRELON SMITH (RB #22) – Smith brings experience as a redshirt-senior, so the big stage should not faze him. He enters Saturday’s matchup as the Hogs’ leading rusher, with 298 yards and three touchdowns on the season. He was also their leading rusher in the win over Texas A&M. If Arkansas is to pull the upset in Athens, the combination of Jefferson and Smith will have to get going on the ground.
TREYLON BURKS (WR #16) – Burks is a big play receiver who currently leads his team in receiving yards with 373 on 19 catches. He scored the first touchdown of the game for Arkansas against the Aggies on an 85-yard strike from Jefferson. Georgia’s corners have played very well so far this season, but Burks will probably be the best receiver they have seen since facing Clemson’s Justyn Ross.
CAM LITTLE (K #29) – Although just a freshman, Little was ranked as one of the best kicking prospects in the country coming out of high school. He’s a perfect 8-of-8 on field goals this season and also has not missed an extra point. Georgia’s defense will want to keep Arkansas on their side on the field, because Little has proved to be automatic so far.
JALEN CATALON (DB #1) – Catalan was All-SEC first team last season and has continued to play well in 2021. He already has two interceptions this year, so JT Daniels will want to keep an eye on wherever Catalon is on the field. He’s also one of the Razorbacks leading tacklers, which is especially impressive as a defensive back.
