PLAYERS TO WATCH

–QB Jake Fromm has gotten off to a strong start for the Bulldogs, having completed 27 of 34 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns. Just a sophomore, Fromm is 14-2 as a starter, including a 5-2 mark versus teams in the Top 25.

–WR Mecole Hardman had a career day at South Carolina, hauling in six catches for 103 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown. It was Georgia’s first 100-yard receiving game since the 2016 Liberty Bowl versus TCU (Isaiah McKenzie, four catches for 103).

–CB Deandre Baker, a preseason All-American, had six tackles, two pass breakups and the team’s first interception of the year, a pick which he brought back 55 yards. Baker actually dropped the football at the South Carolina 1-yard line, but linebacker Juwan Taylor was there to pick it up and step across the goal line for the score.

–S Richard LeCounte made his second consecutive start at South Carolina and led the Bulldogs with a career-high 10 tackles, including a pass breakup.

SERIES HISTORY: Georgia leads the all-time series with Middle Tennessee State 2-0.

QUOTE TO NOTE: “Cade (Mays), I was excited for Cade as much as I was disappointed for Andrew because Cade’s worked hard. He came in mid-year and worked really hard. Biggest reaction I had was I’m glad we practiced the way we did.” — Kirby Smart on Mays taking over at left tackle for the injured Andrew Thomas.
