Who starts at QB for Georgia on Saturday?


The Georgia Bulldogs' quarterback competition is seemingly still on after their Week 1 win over Arkansas.

The Dawgs opened the game with redshirt freshman D'Wan Mathis but, after only six offensive series, was replaced with junior Stetson Bennett.

Georgia's would-be starter Jamie Newman opted out of the 2020 season due to Covid-19 concerns and J.T. Daniels, a transfer out of USC, wasn't medically cleared to play on Saturday.

However, could Daniels not have been cleared for a reason? Did head coach Kirby Smart leave him out for a reason? To potentially have an advantage over the Auburn Tigers in Week 2?

"The quarterback is the most important position on the football field and Georgia doesn't have one right now that we know of," Randy McMichael said.

"There's no reason for (Kirby) to give Auburn anything right now...when I look at this J.T. thing-- since he will be cleared--alright, fine. Does that mean he's going to automatically come in and everything's going to be hunky-dory and all that?"

"I know what we saw last week was not encouraging from D'Wan Mathis...I'm not giving up hope on him. I saw some things that I did like. I want to see J.T."
