No. 11 Georgia pulled out a bit of trickery on its first offensive play against No. 17 Mississippi State.
The result: a 59-yard touchdown.
Fromm ➡️ Godwin.

After forcing a three-and-out from Mississippi State on its opening possession, Georgia took over at its own 41.
Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm handed off to Nick Chubb up the middle, but Chubb wheeled around and flipped the ball back to Fromm on the flea flicker.
Terry Godwin, meanwhile, was racing all alone down the middle of the field, a good 5 yards ahead of cornerback Tolando Cleveland. Fromm delivered the pass in stride, and Godwin weaved into the end zone without being touched to give Georgia a 7-0 lead less than 2 1-2 minutes into the crucial Southeastern Conference game.
