The Georgia Bulldogs completed the 2015 season with a 9-3 record and went on to defeat the Penn State Nittany Lions 24-17 in the Taxslayer Bowl. Georgia entered the 2015 season with high hopes of competing for the Southeastern Conference Championship and was the preseason favorite in the SEC East. They achieved wins over the ULM Warhawks, Vanderbilt Commodores, South Carolina Gamecocks, Southern Jaguars, Missouri Tigers, Kentucky Wildcats, Auburn Tigers, Georgia Southern Eagles, and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets; but lost three conference games to the Alabama Crimson Tide, Tennessee Volunteers, and rival Florida Gators. The season ultimately ended with the dismissal of head coach Mark Richt. Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart was hired to replace him. While the Bulldogs did not make it to the SEC Championship in 2015, they finished the season ranked 10th nationally. Kirby Smart did a solid job recruiting for 2016 with Georgia ranking 4th in the SEC by 247sports.com on National Signing Day. The Bulldogs secured 20 commits, 13 of which are ESPN 300, including No.1 Pocket Passer Jacob Eason. We are looking forward to strong season for the Bulldogs!
