Last January, Georgia played Alabama for the title of the SEC Championship and lost by three points. This season, Georgia started off in second ranking. As of September 19, 2018, Georgia has only played three games and has not lost one. They defeated Austin Peay 45-0, scoring 17 points in the first quarter, 21 points in the second quarter, and 7 in the third quarter. Jake Fromm scored two touchdowns; Justin Fields, Matthew Downing, Demetris Robertson, D’Andre Swift, Elijah Esaias Holyfield, Mecole Hardman, Riley Ridley, Isaac Nauta, and kicker Rodrigo Blankenship all scored 9 points.

On September 8, Georgia played the South Carolina Gamecocks. Georgia beat them 41-17, scoring 17 points in the first quarter, 3 in the second quarter, and 7 in the fourth quarter. Jake Fromm scored one touchdown along with Elijah Esaias Holyfield, D’Andre Swift, Brian Herrian, and Mecole Hardman. Kicker Rodrigo Blankenship brought in a total of 11 points. This win brought the Bulldogs to a 2-0 record.

On the 15th of September, the Georgia Bulldogs played against Middle Tennessee and dominated. The final score of the game was 49-7 with Georgia taking the win. Scorers were among Jake Fromm with three touchdowns, Justin Fields, Tyler Simmons, Jeremiah Holloman, Mecole Hardman, Riley Ridley, and Jayson Stanley, each with one touchdown.

So far, the Bulldogs are 3-0 and hopefully will continue their win streak, allowing them to play in the championship once again. Next week, September 22, the team will play Missouri at 12:00pm. Missouri is also 3-0, which will make the game more thrilling. On September 29, Georgia will be playing on of their biggest rivals, the Tennessee Vols.
