Georgia QB

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm threw for three touchdowns and ran for a third to lead No. 4 Georgia to a 48-38 victory over No. 5 Tennessee on Saturday in front of a record crowd of 93,128 fans. More than 90,000 were in attendance at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The drive to sell out Neyland Stadium by the end of October comes in just five days.


Led Georgia to its first undefeated season under Pop Warner. He is most famous for having died after injuries sustained in a collegiate football game. The next year, he moved to fullback. He died in the game against 3x All-Southern. Paddock went unnoticed his freshman year at halfback, until he was moved to the quarterback position in the game with Georgia Tech and led the Bulldogs to a 20 to 0 victory. Paddock is the only player in school history to have a petition circulated by the student body requesting that he play for the Bulldogs. He was its second ever All-American after Bob McWhorter.

While this year’s Alabama defense has not been as strong as many in Nick Saban’s time as head coach, it’s still an ultra-talented unit that ranks seventh in the FBS in yards per game allowed with 294.2 and 20th in points per game allowed with 19.92. Freshman quarterback Tyler Macon passed for 74 yards and ran for 42 in his first start. He shared time with Brady Cook, who threw for 78 yards.

For most of the past three seasons, Georgia's quarterback play has been between sufficient and awesome. But in big games against teams with the best offense in the country, UGA passers have been forced to open things up and have failed in doing so. Stetson Bennett's performance on Saturday certainly wasn't Georgia's worst in this span of time -- he was 29-for-48 for 340 yards, three TDs and two picks -- but we were waiting all season to see what would happen if or when Georgia found itself in genuine need of points, and what we saw wasn't reassuring.
