Southeastern Conference

What a debut! Daniels' 401 yards, 4 TDs leads No. 13 Georgia


ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- After waiting almost 15 months for this moment, JT Daniels took a knee and soaked up the cheers from the socially distanced crowd.


The transfer from USC didn't just play - he delivered one big moment after another, capped by a 40-yard touchdown pass to Kearis Jackson that broke a 24-24 tie with 9:50 remaining.


What made it more impressive: Jackson and George Pickens had dropped potential TD passes on back-to-back plays, and a holding penalty left Georgia with third-and-20 .


Mississippi State, which had lost four of five games since a shocking upset of defending national champion LSU in the season opener, went toe-to-toe with Georgia most of the night behind freshman quarterback Will Rogers, making his second straight start.


With the Trojans planning to go in a different direction at quarterback, Daniels transferred to Georgia and was granted immediate eligibility in the battle to replace three-year starter Jake Fromm.


Georgia: Daniels' stunning performance will surely leave Bulldog fans wondering why it took so long for coach Kirby Smart to put him in an quarterback.
