Auburn pretty clearly dared Stetson Bennett to beat them. The Tigers just didn’t count on redshirt freshman wide receiver Ladd McConkey aiding the senior quarterback in doing just that.
McConkey led Georgia in receiving on Saturday, catching five passes for 135 yards. Statistically speaking, it’s the best game a Georgia wide receiver has played this season.
The performance propelled the No. 2 Bulldogs to a 34-10 win over No. 18 Auburn on Saturday. The win improves Georgia to 6-0 on the season and 4-0 in SEC play.
McConkey hauled in a 45-yard catch to set up Georgia’s second touchdown of the game. Then McConkey grabbed one of his, hauling in a beautifully thrown pass from Bennett for a 60-yard touchdown.
