The Georgia Bulldogs are rolling on Saturday against Massachusetts and the big lead has led to more playing time for freshman quarterback Justin Fields. Fields took advantage, unleashing a 54-yard touchdown and showing everyone why he is Georgia’s next great quarterback.
Staked to a 35-10 lead late in the second quarter, Fields spotted wide receiver Macole Hardman streaking deep down the field and slung a rocket right to him for the 54-yard score.

Fields hasn’t seen a ton of playing time this season as Georgia’s backup quarterback, but that changed on Saturday as he took over in the second half.
It only took a matter of moments for the freshman to find his rhythm and take over the game with a masterful performance in the first half. The present issue bright for the Bulldogs with Jake Fromm but the future will be even greater when Fields takes over.
