  Stetson Bennett passed for 255 yards and four touchdowns, including two to tight end Brock Bowers, and No. 1 Georgia finished its undefeated regular season by overwhelming Georgia Tech 45-0 on Saturday. Georgia (12-0) gained momentum for next week's much-anticipated Southeastern Conference championship game against No. 3 Alabama in Atlanta. It is the first undefeated regular season for the Bulldogs since 1982, when they capped a streak of three consecutive SEC championships with tailback Herschel Walker. The renewal of the battle for state bragging rights was a mismatch.

Georgia, which began the day leading the nation with its averages of 7.5 points and 236 yards allowed, posted its third shutout while giving up only 171 yards. Bowers had a 77-yard touchdown catch, and Kenny McIntosh added a 59-yard scoring run. Bowers, a freshman, also scored on a 9-yard catch. He has 10 touchdown receptions, a school record for tight ends. Georgia Tech (3-9) finished with three wins for the third consecutive season under coach Geoff Collins, who acknowledged this week he will need to show improvement next year. The Yellow Jackets closed the season with six consecutive losses following a 3-3 start. - Georgia/AP College Football

  The Georgia Bulldogs are ranked No. 1 and just finished off a perfect run through the Southeastern Conference schedule. They're not satisfied yet. Stetson Bennett ran for a touchdown and threw for another as Georgia routed Tennessee 41-17 Saturday. The Bulldogs (10-0, 8-0, No. 1 CFP) went unbeaten in the SEC regular season for the first time since the league split into divisions in 1992 and went to an eight-game schedule. "Nobody thinks they've arrived," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. "There's things we can continue to work to get better at, and they'll continue to do that. But tonight? They went through a tough gauntlet in our league and played well." Georgia already had its fourth berth in the SEC championship game in five years locked up coming into this game. The Bulldogs last went undefeated in league play in 1982 with a 6-0 mark, also the last time the Bulldogs started 10-0. "I mean 39 years, I mean it's special ..." Bennett said. The Bulldogs actually trailed by their largest margin this season after Tennessee scored a touchdown on the opening drive.

Georgia also was down 10-7 at the end of the first quarter, new territory for the Bulldogs, who had only trailed by a field goal each to Auburn and Missouri. Georgia responded by reeling off 27 straight points, including 17 in a dominating second quarter. Derion Kendrick intercepted a pass by Hendon Hooker, and Channing Tindall stripped Hooker of the ball - Tindall had three of Georgia's six sacks. "We didn't come up here to take shots," Smart said. "We came up here to throw them." - Georgia/AP College Football

  With Georgia playing its first game as the nation's No. 1-ranked team since 2008, Stetson Bennett threw three touchdown passes and the Bulldogs got another stifling defensive effort to beat Kentucky. Bennett, starting his third straight game in place of injured JT Daniels, hooked up with freshman tight end Brock Bowers on a pair of scores. The senior quarterback was 14 of 20 for 250 yards in another solid performance with Daniels watching from the sideline for the Bulldogs (7-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference),

Bowers, who has emerged as one of Georgia's most dynamic offensive weapons in his first college season, had five receptions for 101 yards. Georgia's defense allowed two touchdown in a game for the first time all season — the second with 4 seconds remaining after Kentucky (6-1, 4-1) called a timeout to take one last shot at punching it in from the 1. Otherwise, Georgia's top-ranked defense lived up to the billing, limiting Kentucky to 249 total yards and blocking a pair of kicks. - Georgia/AP College Football

  Stetson Bennett and No. 2 Georgia's defense were more than enough to take care of Auburn yet again. Bennett passed for 231 yards and two touchdowns and led the Bulldogs past No. 18 Auburn for the second straight year in a 34-10 victory Saturday even if the defense did allow an opponent to reach the end zone for a change. The nation's top defense gave up only its second touchdown of the year for the Bulldogs (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference), who were still without injured starting quarterback JT Daniels. None of that kept Georgia from another comfortable SEC win and a fifth straight in the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry.

Bennett, who made his first college start in a Top 10 matchup with Auburn (3-2, 1-1) last season, completed 14 of 21 passes and hit Ladd McConkey in stride for a 60-yard third quarter score. He also had a 30-yard run. Daniels is out with a lat injury for the second straight week, along with some sidelined receivers. "It's next man up mentality," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. "That's what we talked about all week. We've got a lot of guys hurt and beat up, including the quarterback. We feel like he's getting better, but Stetson played a heck of a game." But the Jordan-Hare Stadium crowd didn't seem to bother the Bulldogs, who dominated in the trenches on both sides. "We won the line of scrimmage battle," Bennett said. "It was so much fun. I had a blast." Zamir White ran for 79 yards on 18 carries with two touchdowns, doing most of his damage in the second half. - Georgia/AP College Football

  Stetson Bennett did his best to create a quarterback controversy at Georgia. Stepping in for injured starter JT Daniels, Bennett tied a school record with five touchdown passes in the first half to lead No. 2 Georgia to a 56-7 rout of UAB on Saturday. The senior completed his first five passes - four of them going all the way to the end zone for the Bulldogs (2-0), who didn't show any signs of a letdown after a 10-3 victory over Clemson in the opener. Bennett, a former walk-on, started five games last season before Daniels claimed the job. It looks as if Bennett hasn't given up on winning it back. "I guess it's just an innate confidence," he said. "If you believe you're good enough, it really doesn't matter the situation that is thrust upon you." Jermaine Burton set the tone by slipping behind the secondary to haul in a 73-yard TD from Bennett on Georgia's second offensive play, thrilling the raucous crowd of nearly 93,000 at Sanford Stadium.

It was the first full house between the hedges since the 2019 season. Crowds were limited to about 20,000 last season because of the pandemic. By the opening minute of the second quarter, Bennett had scoring passes of 12 yards to Kenny McIntosh, 89 yards to Brock Bowers and 61 yards to Arian Smith. At that point, Bennett's passer rating was a staggering 775.6. The Blazers' secondary didn't put up much resistance, leaving Burton, Bowers and Smith wide open with blown coverages. "It always helps when you've got great players all over the field," Bennett said. Bennett tacked on his fifth TD pass of the game with another to Bowers, the freshman tight end finding a seam in the zone to grab a 9-yard throw that sent the Bulldogs to the locker room with a 35-0 halftime lead. - Georgia/AP College Football

  While Georgia beat Kentucky, it was a second straight underwhelming performance from Bennett. Bennett finished the game 9 of 13 for 131 yards with no touchdown passes and two interceptions. After going without an interception in the Bulldogs' first three games, Bennett has five interceptions in the last two games and still hasn't thrown for more than 269 yards in any game this season. - Birmingham News

  Smart continued to give every indication that Bennett will remain the starter. That seemed obvious given he stuck with Bennett after two more interceptions Saturday to give him five in the last two games, matching the number Jake Fromm had all of last season in 14 games. "There was no discussion about it," Smart said. "A batted ball on a pass that he's got to get around a guy is not a real struggle. I know you could say, 'if it happens once, shame on me. If it happens twice, shame on you,' but it's one of those things where he's got to wrap the ball around it, he's got to throw it away, he's got to get another opportunity."

Bennett's two worst games in pass efficiency have come in the last two. Smart isn't judging Bennett on metrics like that but instead on things such as his second rushing touchdown of the season Saturday. "He also did a lot of good things in the run game," Smart said. "He pulled a ball and scored with it. He put us in the right run plays. He handled motion. He handled clock. He did some good things. He didn't get a chance to throw the ball an awful lot (Saturday) because we were able to run the ball." Smart and offensive coordinator Todd Monken haven't turned again to redshirt freshman D'Wan Mathis, the starter against Arkansas, or Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels, who has yet to play this season after a torn ACL last year. Making a quarterback change for Florida blew up on Georgia in 2015 and contributed to Smart ending up as Bulldogs head coach. The SEC Network broadcast crew said repeatedly Saturday that the impression they got after talking to Smart and Monken is that this is Bennett's team. - Athens Daily Banner

  Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett used "boneheaded" multiple times to describe his performance in Saturday's loss. He performed well in games against Arkansas, Auburn and Tennessee, but Alabama brought a new challenge. Bennett had three interceptions - most of which were on throws over the middle - to go along with two touchdowns. He threw for 269 yards, but had his share of woes. "I think Stetson has gotten better," Smart said. "When the level of competition changes, you don't change your evaluation. The experience he gained tonight will be invaluable through the rest of the run on the road." The latest chapter of Bennett's storybook didn't have another sweet ending. But he continues to have confidence from his coaches. He continues to hold a lead over JT Daniels and D'Wan Mathis. "He's a work in progress, much like our team," Smart said. "He's going to grow and develop." - Macon Telegraph

  Stetson Bennett was interception free in the first three games of the season This time he had three. His third came when he scrambled to the right on a third-and-6 and safety Daniel Moore picked it off. There was no receiver near where Bennett threw the ball. "I was frustrated, I was frustrated with myself," Bennett said. "At that point, it was stupid. The mentality didn't change. We can't have those. Can't have interceptions like that." Defensive end Justin Eboigbe picked off a first half pass off a tip, one of several times a Bennett pass was deflected. Bennett had a pass tipped and off the hands off Jermaine Burton and intercepted by Malachi Moore returned 42 yards in the third quarter.

"I don't know for sure but I thought Jermaine could have caught it," Smart said. "It went through Jermaine's hands a little high and then they picked. Bennet's scramble out of the pocket and throwing it across the field was a "bonehead" play, Smart said. "He's growing up," Smart said. "He made some checks to put us in good situations." Bennett completed 18 of 40 passes for 269 yards with two touchdown and the three picks. "I just did not play well enough," he said. "Got to figure out not to have batted balls, got to figure out how not to have interceptions. Got to figure out how to score points in the second half." - Athens Daily Banner

  Georgia hasn't beaten Alabama in 13 years and have lost seven-consecutive contests. The win in 2007, however, came on the overtime pass to Mikey Henderson inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. Georgia has won its last two meetings in Tuscaloosa. After Alabama's win Saturday over Ole Miss and Lane Kiffin, Nick Saban's record against former assistants rises to 22-0. Georgia has entrusted Stetson Bennett as starting quarterback and leader of the offense. He's the two-star former walk-on. He was never supposed to have much of a shot at the role, even leading up to the season opener. Through it all, the small-town kid has shined with much success for the Bulldogs. But Alabama isn't just any other opponent. Bennett had an up-and-down showing against Tennessee, nearly throwing a couple of interceptions. He will have to regroup on the biggest of stages. Under the lights with millions of eyes set on him, can Bennett continue his roll against the nation's No. 2 team? - Macon Telegraph

  Bennett has a pair of wins on his resume over top 15 teams in his first two college starts. He completed 16 of 27 passes for 228 yards with two touchdowns and still hasn't thrown an interception. He hit Kearis Jackson on a 33-yard pass in the second half for his longest of the game and the two connected on a 21-yard touchdown. Bennett also rushed for 22 yards on six carries including an 8-yard touchdown run with 11:42 left in the second quarter. "We knew they were beating us because of things we had done," Bennett said. "We knew if we had cleaned it up, it would end up like it ended up."

The former walk-on who transferred from junior college scored running right on a design play, touching the pylon on the right front corner of the end zone. He took a shotgun snap and outraced safety Jaylen McCullough. That came after he scrambled for a 10-yard pickup. "The second play Coach Monken was feeling my legs,"Bennett said of offensive corodinator Todd Monken ."I guess I got in the end zone. The Bulldogs had 193 rushing yards and averaged 3.9 yards per carry. - Athens Daily Banner

  Bennett's poise and steady hand have drawn praise. "He's just a natural baller and he loves the game," running back Zamir White said. "We love him, the crowd loves him." He's 37 of 57 for 457 yards this season with 3 touchdowns and no interceptions and is showing up on lists of Heisman Trophy contenders this week but he knows that his hold on the starting job isn't guaranteed. "If you don't produce, you don't play," he said Saturday. The Bennetts moved from Brantley County to Pierce County when Stetson was an eighth grader. Sean Pender, the former Brantley County coach who came by the field next to the pharmacy to watch and offered plays to run, had been hired to coach Pierce County.

"Little Man," as Pender called him to differentiate him from Stetson III, took over as Pierce County starter during his sophomore season in 2014 and is ninth on the Georgia high school career list in both passing yards (9,091) and passing touchdowns (95). He got the "Mailman" nickname by wearing a U.S. Postal Service cap to football camps in hopes of drawing more attention. The 3-star rated prospect by the 247Sports Composite was ranked No. 197 in the state of Georgia for 2017 and the nation's No. 74 quarterback behind eight other quarterbacks from the state. Bennett's height - now listed at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds - isn't what big-time programs were looking for at the position. "There's just a stigma out there when you don't fit certain measureables," said Pender, now Brunswick High coach. - Athens Daily Banner

  Stetson Bennett threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, and No. 3 Georgia bounced back from Tennessee's goal-line stand on the final play of the first half, dominating the final 30 minutes to beat the 14th-ranked Volunteers 44-21 Saturday. The Bulldogs (3-0) knocked off a ranked Southeastern Conference team for the second week in a row, shaking off a a 21-17 deficit to completely wipe out the Volunteers over the final two quarters.

Showing it's still not ready to compete with the league's top programs, Tennessee (2-1) turned it over three times and managed just 71 yards total offense in the second half. Fittingly, Justin Guarantano was sacked on the final play of the game. Bennett ran for a 10-yard touchdown in the first half, hooked up with Kearis Jackson on a 21-yard scoring pass in the final minute of the third quarter, and sealed the victory with a 1-yard TD flip to 305-pound nose tackle Jalen Carter, who was supposedly in the game as an extra blocker. For good measure, Monty Rice stripped the ball away from Guarantano, scooped up the loose ball and ran 20 yards for a fitting epitaph to Georgia's defensive dominance as darkness fell over Athens. - AP College/Georgia Football

  Bennett, after transferring back into the program and receiving a scholarship, backed up Jake Fromm last season and received a plethora of reps on the scout team. That experience was key to Bennett to earning his first-career start Saturday, but Smart never felt 100% sure the return would happen. He called it a "unique situation" for many reasons, but the fact that Bennett signed his national letter of intent around midnight in December validated the strange circumstance - along with the announcement being temporarily deleted on social media and many thinking that promoting the signing was a technical mistake. "We knew he would be a productive player and a good player," Smart said. "Stetson has never lacked in confidence for himself."

A year after returning from Jones Community College in Mississippi, the quarterback picture became more blurred for Bennett. Georgia brought in two transfers - Jamie Newman and JT Daniels - to compete for the starting role. Smart admitted Saturday that Georgia brought Newman in with the intention of starting. Daniels had the caliber to match his five-star recruiting moniker. Bennett was an afterthought when the Bulldogs seemingly had an overload of options. Newman opted out in August, but it still didn't seem to change much for Bennett. He wasn't going to be the season-opening starter. Everyone spoke about D'Wan Mathis or Daniels. The coaching staff had similar thoughts, too, and Bennett might not have been seen as a viable candidate. Bennett had to inquire about his role. His answer came under the spotlight, and the former two-star prospect beat out a list of highly-touted names. - Macon Telegraph

  Kirby Smart was talking about Georgia's established defense after a less than inspiring showing by his offense in its opener against Arkansas when he sounded ready to lean heavily on that one side of the ball. "We're going to have to use them as we build the rest of our team up and as we grow as a team," the Bulldogs coach said. Smart, who made his reputation for his defensive coaching chops, even admitted that he was more focused on working through the offensive issues and less zeroed in on the defense.

A week later, the No. 4 Bulldogs 27-6 takedown of No. 7 Auburn Saturday marked a giant leap forward for the offense under first-year offensive coordinator Todd Monken. Stetson Bennett may as well have walked off the Sanford Stadium field with one of those office name plates engraved with the words: "Starting quarterback." In his first UGA start, Bennett led an offense that didn't need any points this time off a pick six or safety. No, the Bulldogs five scoring drives averaged 65 yards each with two 11 play drives and two 10 play drives. Georgia only had one three-and-out all night. "We really got whipped on all three phases," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. "Stetson's never lacked confidence in himself," Smart said. "I'm happy for him. I want to temper that enthusiasm because he knows he's got to be better. People around him played well. That's important for Stetson, but he did a good job of understanding what we wanted to do in the game plan and he executed that really well." - Athens Daily Banner

  Stetson Bennett threw for 240 yards and a touchdown in his first college start, Zamir White ran for a pair of scores and No. 4 Georgia romped to a 27-6 victory over No. 7 Auburn on Saturday night in the first Top 10 matchup of the college football season. The Bulldogs (2-0) buried Auburn with a 24-0 blitz in the first half, extending their domination of the Deep South's oldest rivalry. The teams had traditionally played in November, but a revamped Southeastern Conference schedule in this pandemic-affected season moved the game up to Week 2. It was their earliest meeting since the very first game in the series was played in February 1892.

No matter the time of year, Georgia kept the upper hand with a fourth straight victory over Auburn (1-1). The Bulldogs have won 13 of the last 16 meetings. Bennett, a fourth-year junior known as "The Mailman," sure delivered before a socially distanced crowd of 20,524 at Sanford Stadium. He didn't make any major mistakes while completing an efficient 17 of 28 passes, including a 21-yard touchdown to George Pickens. Kearis Jackson was Bennett's favorite receiver, hauling in nine catches for 147 yards. - Georgia/AP College Football

  Here's what we know about the quarterbacks after this one: Stetson Bennett moved the offense much better than starter D'Wan Mathis. Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels may be waiting in the wings for his chance, but Bennett was at the helm when the Bulldogs poured on 32 second-half points. Georgia looked like it missed Jamie Newman more than expected after his September opt out. Bennett, the redshirt junior who was the backup last year, was quarterback for three drives when Georgia put up 101 of its 177 total first half yards. He finished 20 of 29 for 211 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. "I was expecting to come in," Bennett said. "If you don't, then it's kind of poor when you do. I always expect to. The first half, it was pretty poor. The second half was better. A few times, I checked to protections when I shouldn't have on that two-point conversion. It worked out but maybe next time it won't." So why did Smart yank Mathis with more than 10 minutes left in the first half? "We were on the headphones and said we were struggling offenisively and didn't have a lot of rhythym and needed to change things up," Smart said. " We just thought it would give us some energy. There's some things he can do well. and he's different than D'Wan in some of his experience. It gave us a spark. It helped us out He's very decisive with the ball. He makes good decisions." - Athens Daily Banner

  Stetson Bennett threw two touchdown passes in the third quarter, and No. 4 Georgia rallied to beat Arkansas 37-10 on Saturday in the season opener for each school. Bennett replaced D'Wan Mathis in the second quarter and finished 20 for 29 for 211 yards. Bennett put the Bulldogs ahead to stay when he tossed a 19-yard touchdown pass to George Pickens and ran in the 2-point conversion to make it 13-10 with 6 minutes left in the third. Zamir White rushed for 71 yards on 13 carries, including a 6-yard TD that gave the Bulldogs a 34-10 lead in the final period.

Feleipe Franks was 19 for 36 for 200 yards and a touchdown in his first start for Arkansas (0-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference), but the Florida transfer also tossed two interceptions. Franks found Treylon Burks for a 49-yard touchdown play in the first quarter, and A.J. Reed kicked a 25-yard field goal with 8:23 left in the third to give the Razorbacks a 10-5 lead. But the Bulldogs (1-0, 1-0) dominated from there. Bennett's pass to Pickens got the lead for Georgia, and he made it 20-10 when he found John FitzPatrick for a 7-yard TD. Eric Stokes then picked off a Franks pass and returned it 30 yards for another score. Georgia's defense also recorded a safety in the first half. - Georgia/AP College Football
