ATLANTA — No. 3 Georgia holds a 21-3 lead over No. 11 Oregon on Saturday through the first half of Saturday’s Chick-fil-A kickoff game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Senior quarterback Stetson Bennett IV hit Ladd McConkey from 4 yards out with 21 seconds left to give the Bulldogs the big lead at the break. Bennett is 18 of 21 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown in two quarters.
One of the game‘s most impressive players was Georgia running back Kenny McIntosh, who had 7 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown to go with 80 receiving yards. The biggest play came on Georgia’s final practice of the half when McIntosh caught a pass and scampered down the left sideline for 38 yards.
Malaki Starks, a star freshman in that vaunted Georgia defense, has played the game so far when he knocked out Oregon quarterback Bo Nix at the 8-yard line with a deep shot face to face. Nix is 16 of 24 for 142 yards with two interceptions and threw several more ill-advised passes that could have been caught if there were any near his receiver.
