ATHENS, Ga. -- If Todd Grantham has proven anything in Georgia’s last three games, it’s that he is a pro at making halftime adjustments. Of course, the Bulldogs’ defensive coordinator hopes his charges will improve to the point that those adjustments won’t be such a necessity.

On top of still-suspended stars Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree, the Bulldogs were also without injured All-America outside linebacker Jarvis Jones for Saturday night’s game against Florida Atlantic. And Jones’ absence was noticeable, as the Owls scored on back-to-back possessions between the first and second quarters before the Bulldogs finally began to pull away.

“We got them to third down a good bit, but we couldn’t get them off the field,” said Georgia coach Mark Richt, whose defense allowed Florida Atlantic to convert on eight of 12 third-down chances in the first half. “Guys like Jarvis get you off of the field. Obviously we’ve seen that with him. So I think it affected us.
