Georgia fans have waited a long time for Jacob Eason’s encore performance, and now one pundit has given them even more reason to be excited about the upcoming season.
CBS Sports recently released its SEC predictions, and one writer — Barrett Sallee — has the Bulldogs winning the SEC Championship Game in December.
Both Sallee and colleague Dennis Dodds picked Georgia to best Florida in the SEC East. However, Sallee has Georgia beating Auburn — not Alabama — in Atlanta on Dec. 2.
Eason showed flashes but was somewhat inconsistent in 2016, completing 55.1 percent of his passes while throwing 16 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
Georgia’s schedule sets up nicely for a championship game run, but the Bulldogs do have a trio of tough road conference games: Tennessee, Auburn and Florida.
UGA’s season starts on Sept. 2 against Appalachian State at 6:15 p.m. ET.
