Georgia defeats Florida in top-10 matchup


It wasn't held for long, however, as Georgia answered immediately with a 24-yard touchdown pass from UGA quarterback Jake Fromm to receiver Terry Godwin. He didn't panic and hit Freddie Swain on a 36-yard touchdown on the same post route on the first drive of the second half. It's the 13th consecutive year that the team with more rushing yards won the game. The Gators will return to a bowl game this year and Florida will be the favorite in its four remaining contests. "We've got to practice goal line more". Georgia leads the all-time matchup 52-43-2.

Win or lose, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart reminds members of the media after every game that the Bulldogs are a work in progress.

Fromm said he was focused on getting better. "We as coaches just got to make sure that we learn it".

"We've got kids with character on this team and they played their heart out", he added.

There were plays to be made and, for the most part, Franks was unable to make them. "I'm proud for the University of Georgia".

Holyfield and Swift combined for 175 on the afternoon, and the Bulldogs outgained Florida on the ground 189-170. Through 12 plays and 71 yards, the pair of tailbacks marched the Bulldogs to the Florida 4-yard line, where junior place kicker Rodrigo Blankenship drilled a 21-yard field goal for the 3-0 margin. A few minutes later, running back Jordan Scarlett lost a fumble and the Bulldogs cashed it in with a 16-yard touchdown pass. Damarea Crockett scored on a 2-yard run early in the second quarter, and Larry Rountree added a 1-yard TD run just before halftime.

And after Florida opened the third quarter by taking a 14-13 lead in just three plays - the last one a spectacular touchdown throw by Feleipe Franks - Fromm completed all three of his passes on the ensuing drive for 51 yards and a touchdown to help Georgia retake the lead.

Last year, Georgia jumped out to a 21-0 lead halfway through the first quarter before cruising to a blowout victory. Sophomore defensive lineman Malik Herring ended the final Florida drive before intermission, forcing an Emory Jones fumble.

Smart insists he pays no attention to the critics who called for increased playing time for versatile true freshman quarterback Justin Fields, especially following the team's loss to the Tigers.

Florida knew stopping the run would be key entering Saturday's matchup, and the Gators seemed to do a good job early of containing the unsafe Georgia backfield in Elijah Holyfield and De'Andre Swift, outside of surrendering 63 yards to the backs on the Bulldogs' first drive of the contest. A 35-yard pass to tight end Charlie Woerner keyed the drive. The lone first-half score was a much-needed spark. Georgia was forced to punt, but Hardman placed himself at the 1-yard line, where he caught the punt and positioned the Gators inches from their own end zone.

Fields didn't even play Saturday, an absence that seemed to confirm Fromm's hold on the starting spot.

His inexplicable absence from the LSU loss coupled with his time as a helmet holder on the sideline against Florida can't sit well for a player who was the second-ranked player in the entire country in the Class of 2018. It was the third failed fourth-down conversion of the game for the Wildcats.

Fromm came through with a crisp response following arguably the worst game of his career - a 16-of-34, two-interception, three-sack debacle in a 20-point loss to LSU on October 13.
