Georgia football game ball in 23-17 win over Notre Dame: WR Lawrence Cager

ATHENS — Georgia receiver Lawrence Cager was ready and waiting after the Bulldogs turned QB Jake Fromm loose in the second half.

Cager helped provide just enough offense in the second half for Georgia to beat Notre Dame 23-17.

Cager’s pivotal leaping TD grab in the corner of the end zone provided the Bulldogs with a 20-10 lead with 13:19 left in the game.

Cager, a graduate transfer from Miami, helped key the touchdown drive with a leaping 36-yard catch four plays earlier.

It was also Cager helping to keep the Bulldogs in the game in the first half, coming up with a contested 14-yard catch on a third-and-9. The reception sustained a 13-play, 75-yard TD drive that tied the game 7-7 in the second quarter.

Cager finished with 5 catches for 82 yards and a TD.

Safety Divaad Wilson made a good case for himself, as well.

Wilson secured a momentum-turning interception in the third quarter and came up with a key PBU on third down.
