The play of quarterback Terry Wilson has been a big boost. and the defense pitched a gem, but it all centers around the hottest non-quarterback in college football.
The 5-11, 223-pounder has been the big man in big SEC moments, setting the tone for the non-Georgia East teams on the way to a 4-0 start. Against Florida, he ran for 175 yards to break the decades-long losing streak, and then he took over against Mississippi State.
