Georgia QB Jacob Eason leaves season opener with knee injury

Jacob Eason Georgia

That will come. Next week at Notre Dame, they could encounter the biggest challenge they'll face all season.

The Bulldogs went on to win the game, 31-10. App State allowed only 17.8 points per game last season. The Mountaineers were especially stingy defensively against the Southeastern Conference Volunteers, holding them to only 127 rushing yards.

In the fourth quarter, Fromm yielded the huddle to Brice Ramsey - who for a third-string quarterback isn't a bad backup punter.

Freshman Jake Fromm led three first-half touchdown drives after starting quarterback Jacob Eason hurt his left knee, helping No. 15 Georgia beat Appalachian State 31-10 on Saturday night. Kickoff for that contest is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET in South Bend, Ind., with the game set to air on NBC.

At halftime, Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart described the injury as a knee sprain. Their offense is very explosive with much experience and production returning. It seemed like it would come at a crucial time and knock us off the sticks, and then you can't get back on. We heard in the spring that Fromm possibly outplayed Eason. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown for Georgia (1-0), which moved to 2-0 all-time against the Mountaineers (0-1). He threw only eight interceptions. Chubb and Michel combined for 183 rushing yards in the first game of their season season.

Appalachian State coach Scott Satterfield was impressed. Eastside's Tee Sims had three tackles with one solo. Sophomore cornerback Clifton Duck is another defensive standout for the Mountaineers. They got smacked the following week at home by OR after plummeting out of the top 25 entirely, although they did score a victory at the end of the year against Tim Tebow, Urban Meyer and Florida. "Isaiah Wynn is too small to be the left tackle", and "Lamont Gaillard can't play center", were just a few of the remarks made by fans and analysts alike in fall camp. Ramsey's second pass was also intercepted, leading to a 43-yard field goal. Special teams should be an over-all strength for the Apps. Their opponents, the Bulldogs, are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 home games and their last 5 September games.

While Fromm was able to kick-start an otherwise struggling offense, Georgia's defense was aggressive from the start.

She's already considered the next big star for Japanese tennis, and she's steadily making her way to the top with her results. Osaka said playing against Williams at Wimbledon helped her against Kerber. "Happy that I'm through", said Pliskova.

Fromm's entrance sparked some life into a stagnant offensive start for Georgia, which went two-and-out on its first two possessions.

Fromm's quick reads: Fromm may not have the natural arm talent Eason possesses. But he must polish up his decision-making, footwork and throwing accuracy.

Georgia also rushed for 223 yards, with seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel almost topping the 100-yard mark. Chubb is a Heisman Trophy candidate and generally considered among the nation's finest players. To be fair, the Appalachian State defensive line was not a strong test; it was quite undersized compared to Georgia. If the Bulldogs have consistent success with its running game, it could be a long game for the Mountaineers. Roquan Smith tied for the team lead with 6 tackles. We'll know a lot more (Sunday). "We don't know the extent (of injury) or how long", said Smart. But that's what's great about college football. "Those guys are quick off the edge, I'll tell you that, it's never easy going against them".

"Georgia is coming off a solid year last year and they've got a ton of players back, basically their whole defense and, of course, their quarterback". The offense had four and the special teams unit had one. "But we're looking forward to seeing what we can do against those guys".

The Mountaineers picked up 11 penalties for a loss of 105 yards throughout the game due to mistakes on offense and defense, and Georgia took advantage with their proficiency. MI was ripe for the picking for Appalachian State, led by quarterback Armanti Edwards.

Georgia entered the season ranked No. 15 in the preseason AP Top 25 poll. However, it's still likely the Bulldogs will win.
