Georgia sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason, who opened the season as the starter and lost the job to Jake Fromm after injuring his knee on the third offensive series, announced on social media Friday that he's transferring. "Thank you UGA for an incredible two years," Eason wrote. "The memories and relationships I have made will truly last a lifetime. I will miss suiting up in red and black, but Athens will always be a place I can call home." Eason is expected to transfer to Washington, where he will have to sit out the 2018 season under NCAA transfer rules.

Bulldogs didn't prepare for Tua (0:39)

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Tua Tagovailoa might have been the most compelling story Monday night for Alabama, but the Tide's defensive adjustments were equally critical. Georgia managed just 142 yards, six first downs and was 2-of-8 on third down after halftime. Of those 142 yards, 80 came on the long TD pass to put the Dawgs up 20-7 midway through the third quarter. After that score, the Dawgs were held to 56 total yards on their final six possessions of the game.
