It meant the Bulldogs also had another great time in the end zone both during and after the game.
The biggest of those days belonged to the graduate transfer receiver, Lawrence Cager. He brought down seven catches for 132 yards and a touchdown catch. That 52-yard pass was the longest play of his Georgia career.
Cager also caught a pass from Jake Fromm for the two-point conversion.
His 132 yards marked the highest single-game total for a Georgia receiver since Reggie Davis piled up 134 yards on two catches against North Texas in 2014.
A few frames from Cager is a good way to get our photo tour from Georgia’s big SEC East win going.

Jake Fromm: He’s been a big problem for Florida
It seems fitting to end things here with Jake Fromm. The junior quarterback flashed some wheels on Friday and added a few reels to his career highlight tape with his night against Florida.

- He’s now 3-0 against Florida. DawgNation’s Connor Riley also dug up on Sunday that he is also 6-3 all-time in his career against Top 10 opponents.
- The Georgia Sports Information Department noted on Saturday night in its press notes that he now becomes one of only four Georgia QBs to earn three all-time wins against the Gators. The other three are Johnny Rauch, Buck Belue and Aaron Murray.
- Fromm has been on fire in his last two games against Florida. He’s completed 37 of his 54 passes for 519 yards. That’s a completion percentage of 69 percent. His passing line includes five touchdowns and zero interceptions.
- On a weekend where former Bulldogs Champ Bailey and Jarvis Jones were enshrined in the Georgia-Florida Football Hall of Fame, the junior from Warner Robins is sure stacking up a career that will receive the same recognition one day.
What did Fromm have to say about his day afterward?
“For me to go out and prove anything that I’m something that people think I’m not that’s never anything or not what I am playing for,” he said. “I play to glorify my God. I play for my teammates in the locker room who are here right now.”
When he said that, it was impossible not to pay attention to what junior teammate Monty Rice said to him as he was walking by.
“Jake you put them on ice today,” Rice proudly shouted in his direction.
Fromm laughed. Then returned to his point.
“I play for my teammates,” he said. “I play for my family and I play for this university. That’s what I want to play for and to go out and be the best that I can be.”
The game plan, to him, was simple.
“Just go out and execute,” he said. “Win the one-on-ones and go out and play the best we could.”
In his last two games against Florida, Jake Fromm has completed 69 percent of his 54 pass attempts for 519 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
