The Black team won the 2022 Georgia football spring game 26-23 over the Red team. The Black team, which featured the first team offense moved the ball well against the Red team’s defense (first string defense).

The game had a few stars including tight ends Arik Gilbert and Oscar Delp. Running back Daijun Edwards, linebacker Nolan Smith, defensive tackle Warren Brinson, wide receiver Kearis Jackson, and defensive tackle Jalen Carter all had good performance.

What are the top highlights from the 2022 G-Day spring game?

Stetson Bennett connects with Arik Gilbert for first TD of game

Stetson Bennett and the Black team opened up scoring with a touchdown pass to tight end Arik Gilbert. Gilbert, who is just getting back into shape, ran several post routes in the red zone on the day and scored a pair of touchdowns. Georgia’s tight end room will be fun.

Daijun Edwards scores rushing TD

Georgia running back Daijun Edwards looked good on G-Day. Edwards scored a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Red team. Edwards will earn significantly more carries next season. Despite Edwards’ success, the spring game focused more on passing to prevent injuries.

Jackson Meeks hauls in long pass from Carson Beck

Carson Beck played well for the Black team. He went 14 of 26 for 274 yards, but did not throw any touchdowns. Beck put the ball on a platter for wide receiver Jackson Meeks in the highlight. Meeks made an impressive contested catch over Nyland Green.

Kendall Milton shows off receiving skills on TD

Kendall Milton has been working on his receiving skills. The former five-star recruit hauled in a 32-yard touchdown pass from Stetson Bennett late in the second quarter. Milton broke a Christopher Smith and Nolan Smith tackle in the process.

Arik Gilbert makes incredible contested TD catch

The Georgia tight end room features Arik Gilbert, Brock Bowers, Darnell Washington, and Oscar Delp. That could end up being a historically good tight end room. Stetson Bennett connected on a spectacular touchdown with Arik Gilbert again on third down midway through the third quarter.

Stetson Bennett to Kearis Jackson connection secures win for Black team

Stetson Bennett found Kearis Jackson to give the Black team a much easier game-winning field goal attempt (play is in the last 10 seconds of the video). Jared Zirkel won the game for the Black team with a field goal as time expired.
