The 2017 UGA G-Day spring football game is set for 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Sanford Stadium in Athens.
The Bulldogs go into the spring game after compiling a lackluster 8-5 record in Kirby Smart’s first season as coach. A strong 2017 recruiting class, the development of QB Jacob Eason and the return of several top offensive players has heightened hopes for this season.

3 things to watch
How will QB Jake Fromm compare to Jacob Eason?
Fromm, one of the team’s most-coveted recruits of the 2017 class, has been enrolled since January. Eason was in Fromm’s situation last year. Nothing like a media/fan-driven “QB controversy” to keep interest intense in the offseason.
How good IS this offense?
Intrepid DawgNation beat writer Seth Emerson has reported several times that Kirby Smart’s mantra this spring has been “the offense is ahead of defense.”
DawgNation’s citizens shall see how true that is live.
Will they come?
Last year’s G-Day game drew an astounding 93,000 fans. Smart has spoken often about wanting to match that this year. Many of last year’s compelling story lines are not applicable this time. Will the high offseason hopes translate into another massive crowd?
