Still family: Jake, Tyler Fromm exchange jerseys after high-stakes Georgia-Auburn game
The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry has nothing on the Fromm family.
Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm played against his younger brother, Tyler, when the Bulldogs visit rival Auburn on Saturday. It looked like Georgia was going to run away with a blowout, but Auburn fought back with 14 points in the fourth quarter to make it a one-possession game.
The Auburn comeback fell short, though, as Georgia kept its playoff hopes alive with a thrilling 21-14 victory against its rivalry.
But that didn’t stop Jake and Tyler form exchange jerseys following the game. They did so on the field and took a few pictures together before heading to the locker room.

Jake Fromm went 13 of 28 for 110 yards and three touchdowns in the Georgia victory. Tyler Fromm didn’t play and has yet to appear in a game for Auburn as a freshman, but it’s still unlikely that he’ll ever forget facing his brother on an SEC football field.
SEC fans could get this brother matchup again in Athens next fall but only if Jake decides to stay for his senior season. He has already accomplished a lot at Georgia, and he will be eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft.
