What social media is saying after Georgia football win over Tennessee
After a slow start to the game, Georgia poured it on against Tennessee, as the Bulldogs scored the final 33 points of the contest and turned what was a 14-10 deficit into a resounding 43-14 win over the Volunteers.
The game really turned at the end of the first half, as Jake Fromm led the Georgia offense on two touchdown drives just before halftime to give the Bulldogs a 27-14 lead.
This got a number of people once again praising Fromm, as he finished the game completing 24 of his 29 pass attempts for 288 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Jake Fromm doesn’t get to put up video game numbers because of @GeorgiaFootball style of offense, but he is such a good player…efficient, accurate, good leader

Georgia's Jake Fromm completed 16-20 passes for 195 yards and 2 TDs in the first half against Tennessee today.

Fromm’s best throw of the night came on a third-down corner route to Demetris Robertson in the second half. The completion ended up going for 33 yards when Georgia only needed 5 yards to pick up the first down.

“When you spread the ball around it makes you a more efficient team and Jake did a nice job of that. Cager is playing well, too,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. “He’s got to continue to lead and help us grow; he’s done a good job of that.”
The other big play that really got people talking was the game’s final touchdown. Cornerback Eric Stokes came on a blitz, and Tennessee quarterback Brian Maurer never saw him coming and the impact looked like something you might see from a Buffalo Bills tailgate.
Tae Crowder scooped up the ensuing fumble and returned it for a touchdown, though not before a Tennessee player, in an attempt to stop Crowder, ended up taking out the ref instead.
The play was Georgia’s final touchdown on the night and it made every Georgia fan pretty happy.

“That play, in particular, was a great call by Dan Lanning,” Smart said afterward. “It was a situation here something stopped he play and he changed the call, and it was a great call against what they had and everybody executed and the quarterback didn’t see the corner coming, and it was scoop and sore. So it was what Havoc is and it’s what we trying to create.”
The Georgia defense shut out Tennessee in the second half, continuing a strong string of second-half performances. On the season, Georgia has given up just one defensive touchdown in the second half. The Bulldogs are also the only team in the country who has not yet given up a rushing touchdown.
As for what the Georgia players had to say, they did not seem to take the victory over the now 1-4 Volunteers lightly, as a number of them celebrated on social media afterward. Fromm didn’t quite wait that long, as he sang the Tennessee fight song on his way out of postgame interviews.
