But no one could have predicted how quickly he'd be pressed into service.

Georgia's stout and experienced defense played the largest role in limiting Appalachian State's offense to less than 300 yards and minimal points, but the Mountaineers caused themselves plenty of grief with penalties, committing 11 for 105 yards. He hit Eason well out of bounds and was assessed a personal foul.

Several freshmen made their debuts for the Mountaineers, including receiver Thomas Hennigan, who finished second in yards among App State receivers for the night and did good work returning the ball, and athlete Malik Williams, who rushed one time and caught a pass for seven yards. The Bulldogs lost their quarterback.

He's been replaced by freshman Jake Fromm. From the moment he stepped on campus, coaches and teammates have raved about his talent, praising a poise well beyond his years.

Eason was 1-for-3 for 4 yards.

"We're expecting them to make plays, and that's what they do." senior linebacker Lorenzo Carter said.

Dell Technologies Championship 2017: Dustin Johnson Leads After Round 1
Twenty players were within five shots of the lead with two rounds to go, and players were bracing for a Sunday of wet weather. So much has changed since he won the inaugural event at the TPC Boston as a sponsor's exemption in 2003.

Appalachian State scored three touchdowns in the second quarter to take a stunning 28-17 lead into halftime.

His objective when he took to the air was to avoid mistakes.

Fromm wasn't assured of playing time in the game or even the season before Eason's injury. Does anyone think the final score would have been much different?

Appalachian State quarterback Taylor Lamb played on the Georgia practice fields when his grandfather, Ray Lamb, was Georgia's coordinator of high school relations.

So the result itself isn't newsworthy.

He didn't appear overwhelmed by the moment.

Well, we can't really blame her, can we? This revelation obviously makes Jon's claim to the iron throne stronger than Daenerys . Clarke told confidently that Dany would take the crown saying, "I've worked so hard I don't want to share that throne ".

The Mountaineers welcome back seventeen starters, are solid favorites to repeat as Sun Belt champions and have been given poll consideration as possibly one of the nation's Top 25 teams.

And it didn't hurt that Fromm never felt scoreboard pressure. Sophomore defensive back Desmond Franklin picked up the Mountaineers' first interception of the season in the fourth quarter, returning it for 26 yards and eventually leading to a Lamb touchdown run, the only touchdown of the game for App State.

The Bulldogs went on to win the game, 31-10.

Georgia had not won a game by more than 14 since a 27-3 win against Kentucky in November 2015. The two seniors have combined for three 1,000-yard seasons.

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Jacob Eason started the night for the Bulldogs and looked off from the start. After the game, Smart said he was unsure of the severity of the injury and that a "lot more" would be known about it Sunday. "Every quarterback runs with every team, so once he stepped in we already knew what time it was. We'll know more tomorrow". The Bulldogs face Notre Dame in week two on the road.

"I hate it for Jake", head coach Kirby Smart said, "because he's worked really hard". It shows that everyone is comfortable with Fromm and has full trust in his ability to play. Undoubtedly, it was an impressive showing from a player in his first game.
