Dave Clawson said he pushed for the home-and-home series between Wake Forest and App State. "In-state rivalries are good for college football," he said. "It can't just be about eyes on television. It has to be about fans at games, and they're sold out."

Georgia coaches have raved about freshman quarterback Jake Fromm's leadership and ability to quickly pick up the offense since he enrolled early in January. It's a good thing for the Bulldogs that he went through spring drills. With quarterback Jacob Eason sidelined with a left knee injury, Fromm has completed 10 of 15 passes for 143 yards with one touchdown, leading the Bulldogs to a 31-0 lead over Appalachian State late in the third quarter.

Should be a Bulldogs breather

Georgia hasn't lost to a non-Power 5 team since its 2011 opener vs. Boise State in Atlanta. Then again, Appalachian State's 2007 opener at Michigan won't soon be forgotten.
