What Kirby Smart said after Georgia’s win over Appalachian State

Georgia coach Kirby Smart saw his Bulldogs smother Appalachian State Saturday night as UGA rolled to a 31-10 victory and spoke about the win after the game.

The opening week victory in Smart’s second season began with a major scare, as Jacob Eason suffered a knee injury in the first quarter after he was pushed out of bounds on a play that led to a penalty. Jake Fromm played the remainder of the game – save for UGA’s final snap – and guided the Georgia offense with some help from Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

Georgia led 21-0 at the half. Fromm completed 8 of his first 11 attempts for 109 yards and a TD in leading Georgia to three straight first-half touchdown drives.

The Bulldogs visit Notre Dame next Saturday night, marking their first game against the Fighting Irish since the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 1981.

Smart said “we don’t know how long he’s going to be out,” when it comes to Eason.

“There’s not a lot of adjustment. Jacob and Jake have a lot of similar qualities when it comes to leadership. We’ve felt Jake Fromm is a good player and we’re excited what he can do for the offense,” Smart told the Georgia Bulldogs Sports Network of Fromm replacing Eason.

“We got a little bit bigger players than they do,” Smart said of Georgia’s marked size advantage.
