KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Jacob Eason’s absence from the playing field ended on Saturday at Tennessee, as the quarterback took the reins for Georgia in the fourth quarter of its rout of the Volunteers.
Eason entered with 8 minutes, 47 seconds left in the fourth quarter and Georgia leading, 38-0. He had missed all of the previous three games after spraining a ligament in his left knee in the first quarter of Georgia’s season opener.
The Georgia fans at Neyland Stadium could be seen applauding as Eason jogged onto the field. Eason only threw 1 pass, an incompletion on third-and-goal from the 2. Graduate transfer David Marvin, getting a chance himself for some late action, kicked a field goal to make it 41-0.
Freshman Jake Fromm once again led Georgia to the win, running for 2 touchdowns and passing for another. Fromm was 7 of 15 for 84 yards, with an interception.
