Georgia has not yet had three passing touchdowns in a game this season. SEC Network analyst Jordan Rodgers predicts that will change on Saturday.

As part of his weekly bold predictions, Rodgers has Daniels going for 3 TDs on Saturday in his UGA debut.

The former 5-star recruit and USC transfer is reportedly going to be the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback on Saturday against Mississippi State. D’Wan Mathis started UGA’s season-opener against Arkansas and was benched for Stetson Bennett. In Georgia’s 44-28 loss to Florida, Bennett was unable to play after injuring his shoulder. The former walk-on had struggled in the loss to Alabama and win over Kentucky.

Smart discussed Georgia’s QB situation in his weekly press conference.

“Since he’s been here, he’s done some nice things,” Smart said. “He’s a guy that’s worked really hard, just as Stetson, Carson (Beck) and D’Wan have done. I’m pleased with the way he’s worked. I’ve been pleased with the way he’s rehabbed his knee and improved his knee and learning our offense and the leadership he’s shown since he arrived has been very good.”

Daniels played in 12 games at USC before a season-ending injury in 2019, he was 241-of-397 passing for 2,887 yards, 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for the Trojans.
