The consensus has been that Daniels is Georgia’s starting quarterback – when he’s healthy. He missed Week 2 due to a heart injury which may have occurred before the start of the season and which appears to be improving. He then faced a Grade 1 lat strain that kept him away for the last three games. Now 7-0 on his Georgia debut, Daniels completed 68 of 94 passes for 722 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions in four games this season. The question now is whether he will return to his original job if he is, in fact, now in good health?
Bennett has made eight starts this season, giving him 13 career starts. Against UAB, Bennett tied a school record with five touchdown passes, all from the first half, and completed 10 of 12 passes for 288 yards. He started the game 5 of 5 with four touchdowns from 73, 12, 89 and 61 yards, helping Georgia take a 35-0 lead at halftime. The 89-yard touchdown pass to the first-year tight end Brock Bowers was the ninth longest passing game in Georgia history and the longest passing game in eight years. Bennett also had a 20-yard run in the game, the longest run of the day for Georgia. Bennett’s final passing efficiency score for the game was 422.4. Bennett is 105 of 163 this season, shooting 1,730 yards, 17 touchdowns and five interceptions, with 35 points for 233 yards.
Beck is 10 of 23 for 176 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
