Top performers from the Appalachian State game

No. 15 Georgia loses QB Jacob Eason to knee injury

Experience was evident as Appalachian State found little room to run and few opportunities for deep shots. Chubb and Michel combined for 1,970 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns last season.

The Bulldog defense, which finished the half by holding the Mountaineers to 190 yards of total offense, held once again to set up Georgia's next score. However, they will need some help from the offensive line to provide adequate running lanes, something that was a struggle at times last season and remains a concern heading into 2017. On Nov. 5, 2005, Appalachian State lost 24-0 to LSU in Baton Rouge, La.

Appalachian State quarterback Taylor Lamb, who as a kid played on the Georgia practice fields when his grandfather, Ray Lamb, was Georgia's coordinator of high school relations, couldn't pull off a win in his return to Athens. On defense, we watched an abundance of guys play fantastic games. "It's been tough all week, a frustrating week in the secondary because we have a lot of guys dinged up".

"Now it's on to Notre Dame, which has a bigger, more physical offensive line and we've got to continue to do that - we got to get better up front", Smart said. "We talked about playing him, he probably could have played, but we didn't know if he would play at his best and we got to the point in the game that we didn't feel like it was worth risking injury any further and give him some recovery and give him some rest". "You're not going to like the outcome against a team like that when you're in those situations".

Sophomore Jacob Eason started the game for the Bulldogs and looked to be out of his comfort zone during his first three pass attempts.




While Eason was being treated for a left knee injury, Jake Fromm completed 8 of his first 11 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in leading Georgia to three straight first-half touchdown drives. "He's playing more physical, I think he's really comfortable; he's playing at 247-250 pounds, whereas past year he was at 239-243". Appalachian State gave the 2016 preseason SEC East favorites all they could handle in Knoxville last season, coming up just short against the Vols in overtime. On the bright side, the inside linebackers did a great job of stopping the running backs from getting to the third level and did not miss many open field tackles.

His third drive lasted just one play longer but ended with the same result: a touchdown. Smart says the Bulldogs won't face a defense with more speed this season.

Besides Lamb, Appalachian State got 38 rushing yards from Jalin Moore, whose longest run was 22 yards. The tight ends caught four passes for 40 yards.

With 6:30 remaining in the first quarter, Mountaineers defensive tackle Myquon Stout drew a personal foul penalty when he hit Eason late out of bounds. "Our ultimate goal is to get the victory, and I thought he did a nice job helping us do that". "He got some tempo things going where we were able to hit some plays".
