Jacob Eason almost did the unthinkable.
With a little more than a minute to go and Georgia trailing, freshman quarterback Jacob Eason led the Bulldogs down the field. With a little more than 10 seconds left, Eason launched a heave toward the end zone. And it fell perfectly into the hands of freshman wide receiver Riley Ridley.
Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, there was just enough time for Tennessee to get into position to launch its own Hail Mary. Jauan Jennings caught the pass in the end zone and the Bulldogs lost 34-31.
But Eason’s future, and the Bulldogs’ future, looks bright.
