Brock Bowers breaks the touchdown record by two scores

The SEC Freshman of the Year is currently tied with Terrence Edwards for receiving touchdowns in a season, but against the Wolverines, Brock Bowers will break it by scoring twice. He has been starting quarterback Stetson Bennett’s favorite target throughout the season, and rightfully so, the kid has been clutch.

While there is George Pickens and other receivers out there, Bowers does so much more, and Friday’s game will not be any different. He helped Georgia get here, and now he will help keep the fight alive. Now it’s time for him to really secure his name in the Georgia record books by being the playmaker the Dawgs need against Michigan.

Bowers has 791 yards on 47 catches and 11 scores, but Friday will see him make it to 13 touchdowns and hopefully another 100-yard game to break another Edwards’ record. The kid is so close it isn’t funny, and wouldn’t it be even more humorous if Bowers did get the 1000-yards without the John Mackey Award even noticing him. No, it doesn’t matter, but at the same time, man, they are silly for leaving him out.

He essentially needs 106 yards against Michigan, and if the Dawgs make the national championship to tie the record, so it is obtainable.

Bowers still has a lot of fight left in him this season, and he wants to help the Bulldogs win, so expect a big game out of him on Friday.

It wouldn’t surprise me if he and starting quarterback Stetson Bennett didn’t connect for an explosive passing touchdown like they have a few times already this season. This year has been the year of tight ends, at least for the Bulldogs, so why stop now? Keep feeding the youngster and let his confidence grow.
