ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Quarterback Dwan Mathis signed with Georgia on Wednesday after giving a verbal commitment to Ohio State, giving the Bulldogs crucial depth at the position as Justin Fields contemplates a possible transfer.
Georgia freshman quarterback Justin Fields was listed Tuesday night in the NCAA's transfer database among the players who have notified their school of their intention to leave, a person with access to database told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NCAA's so-called transfer portal is not public. The person also provided a screenshot to the AP showing Fields listed in the database, with an NCAA identification number and a date initiated of Dec. 18, 2018.
Georgia freshman quarterback Justin Fields has informed Bulldogs coaches he plans to transfer, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Monday night.
The College Football Playoff selection committee has spoken: Georgia is not among the four playoff teams and won't have a chance to play for the national title.
Kirby Smart disagrees. But the Georgia coach said he and his team aren't going to pout about the opportunity to play Texas in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia coach Kirby Smart gambled big on a fake punt as he looked for a way to beat No. 1 Alabama and put his team in the College Football Playoff.
The fake ended with a flop, and exactly 2 minutes later the Crimson Tide took their first lead, completing a comeback from a two-touchdown deficit for a 35-28 win in the Southeastern Conference championship game.
ATLANTA (AP) — Nick Saban and Kirby Smart posed stiffly behind the trophy, forcing smiles for the cameras.
Saban whispered something in his former assistant's ear, drawing a bit of a chuckle.
Then, a quick handshake, and off they went in opposite directions.
It was a formality that had to wait until the last day of November.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Kirby Smart's Alabama defenses routinely squared off in practice against Heisman Trophy-winning running backs and NFL-bound wide receivers.
Still, the Georgia coach never saw a collection of offensive weapons during his days as the top-ranked Crimson Tide's defensive coordinator like he'll see Saturday when the teams meet in the Southeastern Conference championship game in Atlanta.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Hello again, Georgia and Alabama.
For the second time in less than 11 months, the two Southeastern Conference powers are set to meet at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a championship on the line in a mentor-versus-protege coaching showdown. Tua Tagovailoa's back, too, this time as anything but an understudy.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia's playmakers feasted as if lined up at an all-you-can-eat buffet.
No worries. There was plenty of offense for everyone.
Freshman Justin Fields threw two scoring passes and ran for another touchdown, Tyler Simmons had rushing and receiving scores, and No. 5 Georgia protected its playoff hopes by overwhelming UMass 66-27 on Saturday in one of the biggest offensive games in school history.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — There's never been a better time for Kirby Smart to tell his Georgia players the focus is on them, not the opponent.
It's a much-repeated mantra for the Georgia coach that should hit home with players as they begin preparation for Saturday's visit from UMass.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs are firmly focused on a team from Alabama.
No, not the mighty Crimson Tide.
After locking up a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game for the second year in a row, Georgia briefly celebrated but quickly turned its attention to Saturday night's game against Auburn, the 122nd meeting in the Deep South's oldest rivalry.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — No one is quite sure how Rodrigo Blankenship sees through those big, thick glasses.
Georgia coach Kirby Smart even tried them on .
"I don't understand eyesight," Smart said, "but I don't see how those could help anybody see."
Clearly, they work just fine for the kicker known as "Hot Rod," who has become one of the sixth-ranked Bulldogs' most reliable players and a bit of a cult hero between the hedges.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Latest on Southeastern Conference media day (all times Eastern):
Tom Crean wanted what Nick Saban and Tom Izzo had: A strong relationship between the basketball and football coach.
Crean thinks he is building that with Georgia football coach Kirby Smart. He was a Michigan State assistant who arrived about the same time Saban, Alabama's current football coach, took over that program in 1995.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm arrived at Death Valley completing passes at a record-setting pace.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Longtime Georgia sideline reporter and radio commentator Loran Smith was hospitalized after being struck by two players while attending a Bulldogs football practice.
