6. No Stupid Penalties
Inevitably penalties are always a topic of discussion. It’s easy to say don’t make stupid penalties, but it’s another thing to actually not commit those penalties.
There’s going to be a lot of emotions in this game as both teams are going to want to kick off their season with a win. So, there will be a little bit of swagger involved.
However, there is the notion of taking it too far, which the Bulldogs have been known to do in the past. They can’t make the same mistakes here.
The Bulldogs ranked 96th in the country in 2012 with seven penalties per game, averaging 8.1 per game on the road.
Death Valley is going to be a hostile atmosphere, but the Bulldogs can't let it get to them.
