KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — It was another rough start for the Georgia football team, and another example of quarterback Jake Fromm keeping his poise and leading the Bulldogs back.
Fromm completed his first seven passes en route to a sterling 24-of-29 passing night that accounted for 288 yards and 2 touchdowns before the crowd of 92,709 at Neyland Stadium.
There were dropped passes, apparent catches overturned and fourth-down conversions that went awry, but the one constant was Fromm.
Fromm turned the wick up on the offense in the second quarter, rallying the Bulldogs from 14-13 down to a 26-14 halftime lead with two impressive scoring drives.
Lawrence Cager’s 3-yard TD catch at the 1:59 mark made it 20-14, and after the Vol went 3-and-out, Fromm went back to work.
Fromm directed a 5-play, 70-yard drive capped by George Pickens’ 7-yard TD coach with nine seconds left in the half.
The Bulldogs outscored Tennessee 17-0 in the second half, pulling away to remain unbeaten.
