(Jan. 1, 5 p.m. ET on ESPN at Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California)
Georgia hasn’t faced a QB quite like Baker Mayfield all year. Mayfield hasn’t seen a defense as tough as Georgia’s. The Sooners’ defense has been questioned, while Bulldogs QB Jake Fromm needs to prove a true freshman is ready for the big stage. It’s a matchup of contrasts that should be a whole lot of fun to watch.
“Jake Fromm needs to prove a true freshman is ready for the big stage”? After winning at Notre Dame in his first start and the SECCG in his last, we’re still left to wonder if Fromm can handle the bright lights?
At some point, Fromm deserves the benefit of the doubt with regards to his composure. I’d say after thirteen games, he’s earned that much. Look, he may flop for all I know when he plays in the Rose Bowl, but it won’t be because he’s overwhelmed by the setting.
