ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia true freshman Jake Fromm has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week following his performance in the win over #17 Mississippi State, according to a league announcement.
Fromm, a native of Warner Robins, Ga., extended his record to 3-0 as a starter thanks to leading the Bulldogs to a 31-3 rout of MSU. He started the game a perfect 8-for-8 for 160 yards and a touchdown in the opening half and finished 9-for-12 for a career-high 201 yards and two touchdowns.
Fromm began the contest with a flea flicker and after senior tailback Nick Chubb tossed the ball back to him, Fromm connected with junior receiver Terry Godwin for a career-long 59-yard touchdown. This victory marked Fromm’s second victory over a top-25 ranked squad in the last three weeks as he fills in for injured starter Jacob Eason.
The Bulldogs (4-0, 1-0 SEC) travel to their first SEC road game on Saturday as they take on Tennessee (3-1, 0-1 SEC) in Knoxville, Tenn. CBS will televise the 3:30 p.m. matchup.
