Quarterback Charlie Brewer started the day with 12 completions on 22 attempts (54.5 percent) for 72 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Here’s that pick:

Baylor got off to a better start in the second half, scoring on their first possession and then forcing a three-and-out from Georgia. We’ll see if the Bears can continue to catch up.
(Update: they did not, losing 26-14 in the end.)
