4. Brock Bowers will break the single-season scoring record
Brock Bowers will make history again on Saturday as the freshman will break the school’s single-season touchdown record by scoring twice on Alabama.
Bowers has 37 catches for 652 yards and 10 touchdowns, and while he has broken records the last two weeks, as the saying goes, third time’s the charm.
He would break Terrance Edwards’ 11 scores in 2002 by scoring twice, setting the single-season record for most touchdowns.
Bowers could break more records if he miraculously caught four touchdowns on Saturday, but that isn’t likely to happen.
At 37 catches, he is 19 catches away from tying the most receptions made by a freshman. AJ Green set that record in 2008 when he had 56 catches.
Bowers has one of the best freshman campaigns ever by a wideout at Georgia, and it’s incredible to watch it unfold. Saturday will be a big test for him, but he held his composure and did a great job against Clemson in Week 1, so this game shouldn’t be any different.
Starting quarterback Stetson Bennett needs to get him the ball, let him make explosive plays, and trust the youngster. These two have helped each other all year long. There is no need to stop now.
Bowers lets the Tide know just who he is and how he is a force to be reckoned with as a freshman. He doesn’t care if he just got to school months ago. Bowers just wants to help the team and will by scoring twice on Saturday, if not more.
Bennett could lean on him, but that is never a bad thing because the kid has proven he can catch the ball and outrun opponents, so keep feeding him.
