Fromm leads Georgia to win in unexpected debut

The Bulldogs finished last season with an 8-5 record in 2016, a somewhat disappointing mark.

Georgia's defense, expected to be among the nation's best, did its job Saturday, completely suffocating the overwhelmed visitors.

Then, on Georgia's first drive of the second half, Chubb burst out for runs of nine, 10 and 10 yards to get the Bulldogs into field goal range and prevent the App State players from turning the game around. The Mountaineers smothered DE, led by current Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, 49-21.

Today, Appalachian State has made the jump to FBS, and their most recent trip to Ann Arbor was nowhere near as memorable, losing 52-14.

MOORE RESPECT: The Mountaineers' running game is led by Jalin Moore, who was the 2016 Sun Belt offensive player of the year.

Georgia's stout and experienced defense played the largest role in limiting Appalachian State's offense to less than 300 yards and minimal points, but the Mountaineers caused themselves plenty of grief with penalties, committing 11 for 105 yards. "Every quarterback runs with every team, so once he stepped in we already knew what time it was".

Eason got up and limped back toward the huddle before collapsing between the hashes.

Appalachian State almost matched Georgia's total offense in the first half - 207 to 190 - but got into Georgia territory just twice. "You're not going to like the outcome against a team like that when you're in those situations".

Georgia led 31-0 after three quarters.

For the past 5 years, the company's revenue has grown 0.8%, while the company's earnings per share has grown 9.1%. The company had revenue of $4.32 billion during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $4.20 billion.

While the Bulldog's returning starting quarterback, sophomore Jacob Eason, went out early with an apparent strained knee, true freshman Jake Fromm came in to replace him. The Bulldogs are one of the very few teams in the country which can boast of two NFL Draft-caliber running backs in their backfield.

"I think it's a great challenge". If teams pick up on it in film, they'll start loading the box and force Fromm to go deep. After the game, App State head coach Scott Satterfield said this is something a team can not do against any team and expect success, let alone a national powerhouse like Georgia. Nick Chubb rushed for 96 yards and a pair of scores, while Michel had 87 yards and a touchdown of his own.

"I know he has the leadership capabilities and can do anything he really wants", inside linebacker Roquan Smith said. Georgia's balance and diversity on offense will keep Appalachian State's defense off balance all evening long.

Sanford Stadium should be packed Saturday at 3:15 p.m.as the Bulldogs and Mountaineers kickoff in Athens while fans at home can follow the game on ESPN. "We practice these sudden change things all the time, so it was real natural for him to come in there".

But this could be anything but a sure win for Georgia if the Mountaineers play well and don't make many miscues as Smart acknowledges with the following statement: "Appalachian State has a really good team and we expect quite a battle".

RUSHING-Appalachian St., Lamb 10-66, J.Moore 13-38, Upshaw 7-17, Z.Thomas 1-13, Mal.Williams 1-2.

It's unclear what the severity of Eason's injury is exactly, but this is a bad start for Georgia's 2017 season, regardless.

PASSING - Appalachian St., Z.Thomas 3-5-0-20, Lamb 18-27-0-128.

Given the circumstances, Fromm fared well, completing 10 of 15 attempts for 143 yards and a touchdown as the Bulldogs eased past the Mountaineers 31-10.
