College football fans react on social media to Notre Dame leading Georgia at the half
Heading into Saturday night’s showdown in Athens, everything favored Georgia: ESPN’s FPI, ESPN’s SP+, the betting line, etc.
Unsurprisingly, Notre Dame came to play and is giving Georgia a game through the first two quarters. In fact, the Fighting Irish lead 10-7 at the reak.
As you can imagine, with this the primetime CBS game, college football fans and media members of all allegiances are watching – and tweeting.
Here’s a sample of the first-half social reaction to a score some weren’t expecting:

UGA's offensive coordinator is scared as hell

Alright Kirby, you’ve “established” the run. Let Fromm loose.

Georgia, asleep at the wheel. Brian Kelly is out coaching Kirby Smart, folks.
You think he was tired of hearing about Notre Dame vs Top 5 teams last 20-years?

"On that drive Georgia showed why everyone believes that they're elite."
There's that word again. 7-7, Elites vs. Non-Elites.

This Georgia defense is vulnerable
— Christopher Yanes (@MrChrisBits) September 22, 2019
Georgia doesn’t look like a top team right now. Playing conservative and scared and the defense looks awful. #NDvsUGA
