It was as if nothing had changed: Jake Fromm dutifully took his spot at the center of the cameras, still sweating, covered in red welts, and smiling through it all.
The Sooners rolled up a season-high 702 total yards and only punted once, and that was in the fourth quarter after Murray was done for the day.
Jake Fromm threw three touchdown passes, ending speculation about his losing the starting job to freshman Justin Fields, and No. 7 Georgia beat ninth-ranked Florida 36-17 on Saturday. Previous year they never recovered from the disastrous start. We were putting points up on the board, so you can't really complain. "This year was a fight". There were times it seemed closer than that, but there were a lot more times when it seemed just about right.
Georgia finished with 189 yards rushing, including 80 in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs were behind Clemson, Alabama, Notre Dame and MI, respectively, and they can not afford another loss if they want to remain in the conversation.
Florida (6-2, 4-2) took a one-point lead early in the third quarter - Feleipe Franks threw a ideal, 36-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Swain - but Georgia answered with another Fromm-to-Holloman connection and then pulled away late.
Georgia ran into plenty of third-down situations in its 36-16 loss to LSU and didn't have much success.
(12) KENTUCKY 15, MISSOURI 14: Terry Wilson threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Conrad on the final play to lift Kentucky (7-1, 5-1 Southeast) at Missouri (4-4, 1-4).
"It's been up for grabs in the off week", Smart said. Jordan Scarlett, Feleipe Franks and Emory Jones each had one fumble, with UGA recovering two of them. One week after throwing four interceptions in a miserable loss to LSU, Fitzgerald completed 14 of 22 passes, including several big gains that swung the game in favor of the Bulldogs.
"I want to be clear that those select few that have threatened to harm us or wish ill will towards us because we dare to enter their "territory" to represent our beloved school on a national television show do not represent all the fans of those teams, nor those 2 schools, but we must still be vigilant, protect our own, and err on the side of caution". Heralded backup freshman QB Justin Fields didn't even see the field on Saturday. Fields was the top recruit in Georgia's 2018 recruiting class, but he's been used sparingly so far this season.
"I don't have to prove anything", said Fromm, that ever-present smile leaving his face for a moment, "to anybody". That doesn't mean there isn't the rest of the season to play, games to win, a bowl game to make, lessons to learn. "I'm sure he felt and heard the noise". With the exception of his touchdown throw, a 36-yard toss to Freddie Swain, Franks couldn't go downfield. Here are three things to know ahead of the neutral-site game in Jacksonville, Florida.
That loss in Death Valley left Georgia a damaged brand, its aura of invincibility - rivaled and surpassed only by top-ranked Alabama - punctured in an improbable humbling at the hands of the Tigers.
This touchdown gave Florida its first lead of the game, up 14-13. "It changes the narrative of everything". "You can't do that offensively and you aren't going to win many games doing that". He's a great player.
