Georgia Offense Interviews: Stetson Bennett and Kearis Jackson

On the second half of the game… 

“You feel so bad going into halftime getting stopped on a first and one on the goal line and the points that we  spotted them… We had to keep our head up. Coach [Todd] Monken, reminded us, ‘hey man they haven’t  stopped us yet.’ We just have to keep going and get that train rolling. ”  

On his job quarterbacking the team against another top team… 

“Tennessee was a really good football team. They are physical. They knew what their strengths and  weaknesses were, and they played to them. They are a really good football team. The first run was just a  scramble. I got a good block from George [Pickens] on that side. The second play, Coach Monken was  feeling my legs. My o-line blocked it up well. I guess I got in the end-zone? It was pretty close on the pylon.  But, just two back-to-back runs and I got good blocks.”  

On the chemistry between him and WR Kearis Jackson… 

“He plays the game hard. He gets open. It is easy to throw him the ball because he catches it. I don’t go  looking for him, I don’t go really looking for anybody because I just like to use everyone. But he is open a lot.  And he catches my eye and I trust him.”
