The Georgia Bulldogs are ascending on the field, and on the recruiting trail under Kirby Smart. The latest win for Georgia came on Thursday when Adam Anderson, the No. 57-ranked prospect in the class of 2018, committed to the home state Bulldogs over Alabama in what is another recruiting huge victory for Smart over his mentor Nick Saban.

This also marks the first time in the Coach Norvell era that they won a game while trailing after 3 quarters. At the end of the 3rd quarter, Memphis trailed 31-21. They had been 0-6, not no more.
