4. Jake Fromm’s rough night
Yeah, Georgia didn’t really show up, and this wasn’t the same team from the regular season, but give Texas all the credit in the world on this count – the Longhorn defensive front destroyed the Bulldog offensive line.
Longhorn defensive coordinator Todd Orlando brought the house time and again, and Bulldog QB Jake Fromm was being used as a punching bag.
He was fantastic on the late drive to give Georgia the slimmest of hopes, but before throwing his third touchdown pass of the night, it was a long, long game for the sophomore star.
47 of Fromm’s 207 yards came on that last drive, but this wasn’t his fault.
He finished completing 20-of-34 passes for 212 yards and those three scores with a pick, missing a few makable throws for him. There was little help from the running game, the offensive line couldn’t figure out the blitzes, and Fromm was battered and beaten.
Again, Texas had almost everything to do with that.
