Jake Fromm was thrust into the role as Georgia’s No. 1 quarterback early than anyone expected, when he replaced starter Jacob Eason, who hurt his left knee during the first quarter.
Fromm started out strong, leading the Bulldogs on a touchdown drive capped by a Nick Chubb run. He made some good throws in the red zone.
And then Fromm himself got in on the scoring, throwing a 34-yard pass to wide receiver Javon Wims, who caught a jump ball near the goal line and then lunged into the end zone.

The touchdown gave the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead in the first quarter over Appalachian State, and Georgia fans hope that score is the first of many delivered by Fromm during his career in Athens.
