Coming into the season, George Pickens was expected to be Georgia’s leading receiver while Kearis Jackson was just hoping to make a positive impact and answer some of the questions about the wide receiver room.

Jackson hauled in four passes for 91 yards on Saturday. He also scored his first career touchdown, as he hauled in a 21-yard pass from Stetson Bennett IV to give Georgia a 30-21 lead in the third quarter.
