  • Here's something you can expect to happen a lot over the next 48 hours: No. 3-ranked UGA will be penalized and criticized by the national media because the Bulldogs didn't beat Notre Dame convincingly enough as the national media had predicted. Notre Dame will get more credit for losing a close game on the road rather than UGA will for actually winning a big game. Crazy, huh? ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit is arguably college football's top influencer, and he got the narrative rolling in the wee hours of Sunday morning when he tweeted out his top four. UGA dropped out of Herbstreit's top four last week, and they stayed that way this week despite the fact that Bulldogs had just defeated a top-10 opponent in No. 7 Notre Dame. But it was Herbstreit's next tweet that stirred up UGA fans where he focused more on Notre Dame's gaining 'national respect' for their 'willingness to play in a heavyweight brawl' on the road, as opposed to elongated praise for the Bulldogs for pulling out the clutch win, despite not playing at their best (Herbie did throw UGA a small bone with the 'great win' comment, if that counts for much). SO IMPRESSED by @NDFootball tonight!! Willingness to play in a heavyweight brawl. Battled and had a chance to win in the end. Did NOTHING to hurt their cause-only strengthened their position. Great win for @GeorgiaFootball but Irish on the road gained some national respect! Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) September 22, 2019 Herbstreit is one of the first college football influencers to spin that narrative, but he won't be the last within the next couple of days. For UGA, it's a tough position because the Bulldogs never said they would win big that was Las Vegas and the national media.

  • ATHENS Georgia receiver Lawrence Cager was ready and waiting after the Bulldogs turned QB Jake Fromm loose in the second half. Cager helped provide just enough offense in the second half for Georgia to beat Notre Dame 23-17. Cager's pivotal leaping TD grab in the corner of the end zone provided the Bulldogs with a 20-10 leads with 13:19 left in the game. Cager, a graduate transfer from Miami, helped key the touchdown drive with a leaping 36-yard catch four plays earlier. It was also Cager helping to keep the Bulldogs in the game in the first half, coming up with a contested 4-yard catch on a third-and-9. The reception sustained a 13-play, 75-yard TD drive that tied the game 7-7 in the second quarter. Cager finished with 5 catches for 82 yards and a TD. Safety Divaad Wilson made a good case for himself, as well. Wilson secured a momentum-turning interception in the third quarter and came up with a key PBU on third down.

  • ATHENS Georgia football got down to business in the second half, looking like a title contender after a first-half struggle against Notre Dame. The UGA coaches made key halftime adjustments, downing the Irish 23-17 before a crowd of 93,246 on Saturday night at Sanford Stadium. Jake Fromm finished 20-of-26 passing for 187 yards and a TD. The No. 3 Bulldogs (4-0) were facing the No. 7-ranked Irish (2-1) in the first non-conference battle of Top 10 teams since 1966. Georgia trailed 10-7 through the first two quarters. It was the first time the Bulldogs faced a halftime deficit at home since the 2016 contest with Auburn. Georgia's defense stepped up in the second half, intercepting Notre Dame QB Ian Book twice in the second half. Book finished 29-of-47 for 275 with two touchdowns. Stock Up Georgia fans packed Sanford Stadium and made a difference, triggering four Notre Dame false starts in the first half with the Bulldogs struggling, and two more in the second half. The crowd defended the integrity of home field, even as deep-pocked Irish fans tried to invade. Divaad Wilson's interception and 11-yard return to the Notre Dame 22 swung the momentum in the second half.Wilson also had a key PBU on a ND third down pass in the third quarter. Eli Wolf came through with an 8-yard to convert a third-and-6, sparking Georgia's first TD drive. Rodrigo Blankenship provided a boost with his game-tying (10-10) 40-yard field goal and go-ahead 31-yard field goal in the third quarter. Blankenship's fourth quarter field goal, from 42 yards out, made it 23-10. J.R. Reed came up with a key fourth quarter interception after nearly picking off two other passes. D'Andre Swift's leaping moment hurdling a Notre Dame defender on a 10-yard run is one for the memory banks. Linebacker Tae Crowder led the defense with nine tackles. Stock Down Jake Camarda shanked a 20-yard punt on his first attempt and failed to drop kick inside 20 on punt from Notre Dame 48. Camarda's final punt went just 27 yards. Tyler Simmons muffed punt at the UGA 8-yard line set up Notre Dame's second quarter TD. Charlie Woerner had a fourth-quarter penalty after lining up improperly and fumbled after a first-half catch. Cade Mays had a false start and allowed a QB pressure and hard hit on Jake Fromm. Justin Shaffer's personal foul wiped out a Swift gain to the 14 in the third quarter.

  • UGA's tradition of 'lighting up' Sanford Stadium may have never looked better than it did Saturday. With a national TV audience closely paying attention to the UGA-Notre Dame showdown, the Bulldog fans took it the next level with their tradition of lighting up the stadium with their cell phones at the start of the fourth quarter. Of course, the light show was boosted by a couple of things: (1) the electrifying crowd environment at the game tickets were the most expensive for any college game this season, and (2) UGA unveiling it's new state-of-the-art LED system. Saturday night's light show looked somewhere between a rock concert and an WWE wrestling event. It was surely a proud moment for UGA fans. Watch the video and let us know what you think below.

  • Just as Georgia's offense started rolling on a drive a little more than halfway through the third quarter, Notre Dame halted the momentum. But the Irish's tactic to stop the Georgia offense was less thanlegitimate. After a 5-yard completion to Lawrence Cager on first-and-10 inside the red zone, quarterback Jake Fromm appeared to want to run another play quickly on second down, but he wasn't able to because a Notre Dame player went down with an injury. That player was Irish linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. While he did seem to be getting up a little slowly after the 5-yard pass, rather than quickly getting off the field, his teammate seemed to get instructions from the Notre Dame bench to push Owusu-Koramoah to the field in order to temporarily stop play. So Notre Dame blatantly just faked an injury. pic.twitter.com/OCWycBRjej Connor O'Gara (@cjogara) September 22, 2019 The tactic worked. The officials did stop the game. Then, running back D'Andre Swift gained just one yard on second down, and then Fromm threw an incomplete pass into the end zone on third down. That forced Georgia to settle for a field goal. The Bulldogs lead the Irish, 13-10, heading into the fourth, but if Georgia falls behind in this game, losing momentum on the drive midway through the third quarter could prove to be a critical turning point.
