In the latest release of the Amway Coaches Poll, Georgia moved from No. 12 to No. 8.

No changes at the top, as Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma and Penn State all retained spot Nos. 1-4, respectively. Further down, Georgia bumped up four spots to land in the top-10 courtesy of Saturday's dominating win over Mississippi State. TCU nearly joined them after their upset of Oklahoma State, but not quite, not quite -- the Horned Frogs moved up from No. 15 to No. 11. As for the biggest droppers, nobody took a harder hit than Florida State. The 0-2 Seminoles plummeted 14 spots to No. 25 following their loss to NC State and are now teetering on the edge of falling out of the poll altogether.

Georgia freshman QB Jake Fromm threw for two scores and 201 yards on 9-of-12 passing in an easy 31-3 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday.

Once again, Fromm didn't look like freshman on Saturday. Georgia didn't make the freshman do much, but when he was asked to throw, he looked poised and accurate. He found Terry Godwin on a perfect fleaflicker pass to open the scoring at 7-0, and he had another long touchdown to Isaac Nauta for a 41-yard gain that made it 28-3. It's going to be very hard to bench Fromm right now, even when opening starter Jacob Eason is healthy enough to play.

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb ran for 81 yards and two scores on 15 carries in a 31-3 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday.

Chubb (5'10/235) did what he did best; punish defender between the tackles and make people miss in the open field. His first touchdown was a perfect example of that when he shook off an ankle tackle and gave UGA a `14-0 lead. His second touchdown was a 28 yard blast to make it 21-3 Georgia and put the game out of reach from the ineffective Mississippi State offense. The bulldogs are limiting Chubbs touches, but he's still showing that he can make the most of them.

Georgia beat writer Marc Weiszer believes the number one key to victory for the Bulldogs is to disrupt Mississippi State QB Nick Fitzgerald.

"Just get him off his spot, don’t let him step into his throws," edge rusher Lorenzo Carter said. "We’re trying to push the pocket." Weiszer notes Mississippi State's right tackle is redshirt freshman Stewart Reese. Fitzgerald has only been sacked once this season. Kirby Smart will likely change that.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo likens Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson to Seattle Seahawks DT Jarran Reed.

Reed cashed in on his ability to stop the run in getting selected in the second round by the Seattle Seahawks in 2016. Thompson has an "eerily similar on-field profile," according to Palazzolo, in that he can "both disrupt and finish." Thompson had 56 tackles, 9.5 TFL, five sacks and a pair of passes defended last year. "Neither Reed nor Thompson is known for their pass-rush skills, and Thompson will likely have to take a step forward in that department in order to move up draft boards," Palazzolo wrote. "But both players show elite run defending skills and that's what makes Thompson an intriguing prospect as he kicks off his junior season."

Georgia freshman QB Jake Fromm will start Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

Fromm draws his third consecutive start this season, as Jacob Eason is still on the recovery trail from a knee injury suffered in the season-opener. In three games this season, the true freshman has thrown for 449 yards (59.6% completions, 7.9 YPA) with a 5/1 TD/INT ratio. The Bulldogs have understandably kept the game plan relatively simple for the green gunslinger -- he has yet to pass for more than 170 yards in a game.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that there is "a chance" that senior CB Malkom Parrish (foot) is able to play against Mississippi State on Saturday.

Parrish (5'10/185) is recovering from what was reported as a broken foot suffered in mid-August. He missed the first three games of the season, but returned to practice this week. His status for Saturday will be determined over the next two days.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Mississippi State.

Eason managed to take part in practice to a limited degree this week -- he has been throwing -- but the Bulldogs are going to let him rest up for at least one more week before they consider throwing him back into a game. Jake Fromm will once again start in his place on Saturday.

Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason (knee) was able to practice in portions on Monday.

Eason missed the last two games with the knee injury he suffered in the opener against Appalachian State. There's still no timetable for his return, and if he's unable to go, freshman Jacob Fromme will get his third straight start against Mississippi State.
Sep 18 - 8:03 PM

Georgia senior RB Sony Michel (ankle) warmed up on Saturday and is expecting to play against Samford.

Michel (5'11/208) hurt his ankle in the 20-19 victory over Notre Dame. He had limited practices, but appears to be good to go against an FCs defense.
Sep 16 - 7:24 PM

Georgia QB Jacob Eason was able to walk without crutches before Saturday's game against Samford.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart recently labeled Eason as "week-to_week." Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm will start in Eason's place again on Saturday.

Athlon Sports named Georgia senior OLB Lorenzo Carter the SEC's Defensive Player of the Week for his work against Notre Dame on Saturday.

Carter (6'5/234) was a one-man wrecking ball in Georgia's win over the Irish, racking up seven tackles (1.0 for loss), a pair of quarterback hurries and a pair of fumbles forced. The second of those fumbles was one of the most important plays in the game, as Carter stripped QB Brandon Wimbush late in the fourth quarter. The ball was subsequently recovered by Georgia, preventing any possible late magic for Notre Dame.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that he "expect[s] [senior RB Sony Michel] to be fine."

Michel dinged up his ankle in the fourth quarter of this past weekend's 20-19 win over Notre Dame. Said Smart, "We're just limiting his reps (in practice). We're hoping he's able to go Saturday. We think he'll be able to." The 5-foot-11, 208-pound senior has rushed for 160 yards (5.5 YPC) and two touchdowns through two games.
Sep 13 - 7:09 PM

Georgia coach Kirby Smart categorizes senior CB Malkom Parrish (foot) as week-to-week.

Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia is "still at least a week away from getting back" its starting cornerback. Emerson noted that Parrish wasn't seen during the portion of Tuesday's practice that was open to the media.
Sep 13 - 4:40 PM

Georgia freshman WR Mark Webb has moved to cornerback.

The four-star recruit was recruited as a receiver and played that position in camp. But last week, Webb made the trip to Notre Dame as a defensive back. He has remained on defense this week in practice.
