Video: Tennessee safety speaks about Georgia QB Eason
The undefeated Tennessee Volunteers are riding high after it’s massive come-from-behind victory over the Florida Gators.
As is the case within the SEC, there aren’t many “cupcake” conference games. The Vols will be going out on the road to face a hungry Georgia team. Not only do the Bulldogs possess a deep backfield led by the likes of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, but they also have true freshman Jacob Eason.
The strong-armed signal-caller out of Washington had his roughest game of his young career this past Saturday in the loss to Ole Miss — going 16-of-36 for 137 yards and one interception. However, he’s proven to be a more than capable of driving the ball down the field to the likes of Isaiah McKenzie and company.
Starting Tennessee defensive back Todd Kelly Jr. spoke about the challenges of facing Eason during a Tuesday press conference. Suffice it to say, but UT has a ton of respect for both Eason and his group of receivers.
