Although he has only played three games in the 2020 season after transferring from USC, Georgia quarterback JT Daniels has revitalized the Bulldogs’ offense, and he is playing with momentum heading into the New Year’s Day matchup against undefeated Cincinnati in the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl.

In games against Missouri, South Carolina, and Mississippi State, Daniels completed over 66 percent of his passes for 839 yards, nine touchdowns, and just one interception.

Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell commented on Daniel’s ability in front of the media as he prepares the Bearcats to face Georgia.

“I know he can make every throw, I know he can spin it, he’s got some great weapons” said Fickell.

“I still don’t think he’s unleashed all he can do, when you run the ball and got as good an offensive line as they have, you don’t have to kind of sit your quarterback back there and do all those different things. So I can see where they’re probably slow in the maturation, saying ‘hey let’s don’t give him everything, we might get away from some of the things we do really well’.”

Fickell discussed Georgia’s ability to run the football as a reason for not having to heavily rely on Daniels.

“Just because he throws it so well and has such a touch, you don’t want to lose the nastiness and the toughness that those guys up front bring in their ability to run the football. I just think when you watch games you just see a rhythm of more consistency, knowing what he can do, and as they continue to grow you’re curious to see with 12 days, that next step, what will they give him to do to make that offense even more dynamic.

“But you can tell he’s the future of what they’re doing.”
