Georgia football-Notre Dame keys to game
1. How does Jake Fromm look?
In place of Eason, Georgia is starting Jake Fromm. The freshman quarterback did get some reps against App State, as he completed 10 of his 15 attempts for 143 yards and a touchdown. But Fromm will be making his first career start on the road in one of toughest environments in all of college football. For what it’s worth, Georgia did Eason’s first road start last year, which came against Missouri.
2. Who wins the matchup between Georgia’s offensive line and Notre Dame’s defensive line?
The strength of the Georgia football team is it’s defensive line, led by Trent Thompson and Jonathan Ledbetter. Notre Dame can say it has one of the best offensive lines in the country with the likes of Mike McGlinchey and Quenton Nelson. Which ever position group comes out on top will play a huge role in determining the game. The Fighting Irish are the betting favorite going into the game, as they are a 5.5-favorite over the Bulldogs, even though Notre Dame went 4-8 last year.
3. Can Georgia contain Brandon Wimbush?
Notre Dame also boasts a former blue chip quarterback in Brandon Wimbush. In his first career start, Wimbush looked impressive as he threw for 184 yards and added another 106 on the ground. If Georgia can keep Wimbush from consistently taking off, it will have to like its chances of knocking off Notre Dame on the road. And that would be a win for Kirby Smart in his second year as Georgia’s coach.
