ATLANTA — The number three Georgia Bulldogs show just how dangerous they are in the SEC with an easy 42-7 win over the Florida Gators in Jacksonville.
The Bulldogs offensive line played like an NFL caliber team, opening up running lanes for Nick Chubb and Sony Michele as the team ran for a total of 292 yards on the night, along with no sacks allowed; Exactly what you want to see from your big guys up front.
Jake Fromm passed for only 101 yards on 4 of 7 passing with a great throw and catch for a touchdown to senior receiver Javon Wims. Wims along with Godwin have been quite the duo in helping the young Quarterback transition into his permanent role as a starter, with big-time catches throughout the year.
But with the season dwindling down and the Conference championships coming up, what kind of Quarterback is Jake Fromm? Just a manager? or does he show up when needed?
Fromm’s latest performance against the Gators doesn’t really give us a definitive answer; throwing for just 101 yards and one score doesn’t really scare defenses. However, the freshman’s latest game against Missouri, he passed for 262 yards and two scores which showed CFB critics that he could be a threat in the passing game.
So, maybe Fromm is just waiting for some competition. Well, get ready Mr. Fromm because when Alabama comes to Atlanta, your arm will have to be the deciding factor in a Bulldog win.
On the flip side, the No. 2 ranked defense in the country holds the Gators to just 66 passing yards along with one interception and five sacks. This defense has been one of the consistent parts of this team and ultimately the catalyst to why this team will continue winning games.
Speaking of defense, head coach Kirby Smart was quite unpleased with his team after letting a late score by the Gators with two minutes left in the game. “I was pissed, to say the least,” stated coach Smart.
It says a lot to see a coach so passionate at the end of a game while being up 42-7. This is a well-coached team and we witnessed this by coach Smart’s action’s, he wants his team to close out every game playing with the same effort that was started with regardless of the score.
The Bulldogs continue to impress the CFB committee with another convincing victory that keeps them undefeated (8-0) and on a collision path with the number one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (8-0).
This will be the first time since 2012 that two teams in the SEC will be ranked No. 1 and 2. Making the SEC championship game that more anticipated by college football fans.
Georgia: Hosts South Carolina next Saturday. The Bulldogs could clinch the East next week, but only if Kentucky loses to Tennessee later this Saturday.
