Sports Illustrated college football columnist Andy Staples joined Jeff Benedict Tuesday to chat about if Georgia is built to make another run at the national championship and how good the Bulldogs' talent level is.

"From a pure talent standpoint, they can hang with anyone in the country," said Staples. "They're maybe not quite at Alabama or Clemson's level, but they're close enough." 

He also discussed if Missouri, with the Drew Lock-led offense can test the Bulldogs, but how they aren't the only challenge.

"The South Carolina game is tricky because of where it is," said the SI columnist. "If you play that in November I don't worry about it."

Andy continued by discussing what he expects from Georgia Tech and why he's excited to watch them on offense. 

"Georgia Tech will make it to a Bowl Game," said Staples. "But the question is will this be the random year where they come out and win the division"

Staples closed out the interview by discussing the great defensive line play across the nation, if the hype around Clemson's defensive line is real, and which AP Top 25 teams are overrated and which are underrated. ​
