Eric Zeier, or “Air Zeier” as he has been called, was one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in Georgia history, and the 1992 season was one of the standouts in the brief Ray Goff era.

Zeier threw for 2,248 yards and 12 touchdowns and had a backfield of running backs that included Garrison Hearst, Terrell Davis, Mack Strong, and Frank Harvey. Those four tailbacks accounted for 2,601 rushing yards, 528 receiving yards, and 30 total touchdowns. It’s no wonder Georgia’s offense set a new standard in 1992.

Along with Andre Hastings’ 860 receiving yards and five touchdowns, Zeier had three more receivers who caught for over 250 yards each and accounted for five more touchdowns.

Georgia was a mere eight points away from a perfect season, with two very close losses to Tennessee and Florida in the regular season.
