Georgia football Game Ball: Stetson Bennett delivers in record-setting fashion

ATHENS — Through rain, sleet, snow and a few scattered boos during the video board introduction, Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett IV delivered.

Bennett had tied a UGA school record with his fifth TD pass of the day by halftime as Georgia built a 35-0 lead as the teams headed to intermission.

At that, Bennett didn’t even play on all of the series to that point, with Kirby Smart wedging three first-half series for Carson Beck to get the redshirt freshman’s feet wet.

Bennett led the Bulldogs to touchdowns on six of the seven drives he played in the game, finishing 9-of-11 passing 279 yards with 5 touchdowns and no interceptions in the 56-7 victory.

Bennett was the ultimate reliever for Georgia last season, entering the opening game at Arkansas with UGA trailing 7-2 before he rallied the Bulldogs to the 37-10 victory.
