WATCH: Georgia QB Jake Fromm elaborates on improved play after Auburn win
ATHENS — Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm passed the credit all around after he dissected Auburn for the better part of the 27-10 victory on Saturday night in Sanford Stadium.
The No. 5-ranked Bulldogs improved to 9-1, closing the SEC portion of their schedule with a 7-1 mark. Georgia has non-conference games against UMass and Georgia Tech remaining before the Dec. 1 SEC Championship game against Alabama.

Fromm improved to 21-3 as the Bulldogs starting quarterback after a 13-of-20 passing night the was good for 193 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Fromm also had two of his passes dropped.
Perhaps the biggest play of the night was when Fromm connected with senior receiver Terry Godwin on a fourth-and-3 at the Auburn 38 with 29 seconds left in the first half.
Godwin and Fromm were on the same page on the option route, Godwin catching the pass in stride and racing into the end zone for a touchdown that gave the Bulldogs a 20-10 lead at the half.
“Great play call, something we worked on all week,” Fromm said. “Terry does a great job in space, knows option routes. I thought it was my hardest pass of the night because he was so open, you don’t want to miss it. But he ran a great route.”
Fromm deflected credit for his improved play since the bye week three weeks ago.
“Calling really good plays, focusing on the preparation during the week, guys are getting open the pass protection has been good,” Fromm said, “so it makes my job really easy.”
