Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Mekhi Mews is turning heads through two weeks of the 2023 college football season. Mews had a career day as a receiver in Week 1 against UT Martin. As a returner, Mews is having the best game of his career.

Mews, a walk-on, returned a 67-yard punt for a touchdown to give Georgia a 7-0 lead over Ball State. Mews’ punt return for a touchdown is Georgia’s first punt return for a touchdown since Mecole Hardman scored on a 2019 punt return.
