Considering the way both UGA and Penn State have struggled on offense this season, many expected the TaxSlayer Bowl matchup to be lacking in explosive plays. But the Bulldogs and interim offensive coordinator John Lilly dialed up a beauty in the second quarter of Saturday’s game.
Sitting on 2nd-and-8, electric freshman receiver Terry Godwin showed off his 5-star athleticism by taking a snap from the wildcat formation and heaving a 44-yard pass to a wide-open Malcolm Mitchell for UGA’s first touchdown of the day.
Godwin also caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Greyson Lambert to put the Bulldogs up, 17-3, with less than 30 seconds remaining in the first half.
Mitchell may be playing in his last college game, but if Saturday’s game is any indication, Godwin appears poised to help assume his place as a UGA playmaker.
