10 years ago, Appalachian State upset Michigan; Here's how it happened

10 years ago, Appalachian State upset Michigan; Here's how it happened”

Through three quarters of play, the Mountaineers had yet to crack 200 yards of total offense, managing just seven first downs. He was hit very late on the play, resulting in him twisting his knee near the sidelines.

While much of the attention on the Thursday night slate was focused on Ohio State's second half resurgence at IN or Mason Rudolph's dazzling aerial display against Tulsa, you may have somehow missed the coaching debut of on P.J. The tandem not only did a good job of running the ball, but they made it easier for Fromm to stay upright in the pocket with key blocks on pass rushers.

As smooth as the offense looked, the defense was downright dominant for most of the game.

Defensively, the Bulldogs allowed only 284 yards, with Appalachian State's only touchdown scoring on a 20-yard scramble by Taylor Lamb against Georgia's second unit with 5:41 left. The Mountaineers struggled to put up points against the two Power 5 opponents they faced in 2016, averaging just 11.5 points in games against Tennessee and Miami.

Until Eason is healthy again, it appears freshman Jake Fromm, who took over when Eason went down against Appalachian State, will be the starter, and Brice Ramsey will serve as the backup. The Bulldogs need a strong showing to build confidence for sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason, heading into next week's trip to Notre Dame. Fromm has a bit more touch as a passer. "They are outweighed, but they are lower than the 300-pounders that they're going against and can get up under them". "(Players feel) 'I get to play, I have more value.' But it also keeps guys fresh".

Freshman Jake Fromm led three first-half touchdown drives after starting quarterback Jacob Eason hurt his left knee, helping No. 15 Georgia beat Appalachian State 31-10 on Saturday night.

According to the official Powerball website , the next jackpot to be awarded Saturday night is valued at $40 million. Five white balls were drawn from a drum containing 69 balls and one red ball was selected from a drum with 26 balls.

"Fromm came in and did a great job", Nauta said.

The Mountaineers welcome back seventeen starters, are solid favorites to repeat as Sun Belt champions and have been given poll consideration as possibly one of the nation's Top 25 teams. "When Fromm comes in, he completed two in a row and played exceptionally well for a freshman getting in the game like that". "The penalties didn't help at all". And they have arguably the best backfield and running back in the country this year.

Georgia also rushed for 223 yards, with seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel almost topping the 100-yard mark.

Fromm completed his first career touchdown pass to Javon Wims to give the Dawgs a 14-0 lead in the second quarter. He said: "If you think about it, there's probably not one player on Georgia's team that we had a chance at recruiting and there's not a player on our team that Georgia wanted (to recruit)". "He got some tempo things going where we were able to hit some plays".

Sick catch by App State's Ike Lewis. We have a lot of respect for Appalachian State. "You can't do that against an average football team and expect to do well especially against a caliber team like Georgia".
