Jake Fromm ices Florida win with unlikely hero in Tennessee transfer
One of the issues with the struggles of the Georgia offense recently has been the lack of production from the tight end position. TEs Charlie Woerner and Eli Wolf have not made much of a splash this season, especially in the passing game. That changed on Saturday in the 24-17 win over Florida.
Wolf hauled in a third down conversion with seven yards to go on a 22-yard catch as Fromm made the throw from his back foot facing a blitzing defender with 2:45 remaining. It was a fitting conversion on third down because Georgia controlled that stat the entire game. The Bulldogs finished 12-for-18 on third downs, while Florida was 2-for-9.
It was the first win for Georgia when Fromm attempts 30 or more passes. He finished 20-for-30 for 279 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
For Wolf, it was easily the biggest catch of his short Georgia career. The graduate transfer from Tennessee has played in every game and recorded nine receptions for 116 receiving yards.
Wolf had two catches for 26 yards against Florida. Woerner had two catches for 20 yards as the tight ends became more involved than recent Georgia games.
