On that 4th down play, I remember saying OMG Galloway is wide open behind where Brice threw the ball. So glad he dropped it in, because he had an easier pass available.

Funny how that works. Dont make that one play and one can reasonably assume we MIGHT never have made CFP even if we won out as we did and therefore never get to play ND and bama and win the natty.

Would we have made the CFP if Brice didn't make that throw? It wouldn't have been much different from the 2017 loss to Syracuse. We benefited from a tougher 2017 schedule though.

It's right up there with the other "4th ands"

4th & 17- Dantzler to McKelvey
4th & 16- Boyd to Hopkins
4th & 6 - Brice to Higgins

I'll give up ten or eleven yards for the right to grab another trophy. All three weren't the true "game winning" play, but they were the most critical downs on the drives that made the wins happen.

Was at that game, and it was emotionally exhausting. I honestly thought we were going to lose that one until that conversion. Brice REALLY played with tremendous poise in that game. His stats weren’t great but he did exactly what his team needed him to do.

That QB keeper we ran after that stays in my mind just as much


Wouldn’t change a thing about that game, it made us a lot better

Probably the play of the season. With so much on the line and add all the crazy crap going on with Bryant, the game set up to be a serious trap game. And very much could have ruined this season, even for all our success and the way the media drove the SEC train down our throats more than usual. Who knows? UGA may have been able to sneak in if we had lost. Enough can't be said about how the team rallied around Brice and saved the season. And then add in the moxie Brice displayed, it is just a WOW moment.

That game was pivotal. We lose to Syracuse and there’s a very good chance they don’t lose to Pitt the next week. We never get a shot at the ACC title and an opportunity to make it back into the top 4. That’s likely what was on the line on 4th and 6.

That was the lifeline throw.

I saw Deandre McDaniel after that game and we were talking about Chase. At that time we didn't know what the deal was on Trevor. I asked, "we are going to be ok right"?

DMAC looked at me straight in the eye, "Chase had a lotta stars too Barb and is the ice man. We are more than just fine"

I knew then we were going to Santa Clara and I booked it.

I never thought that Brice would be able to win a game for us. I was glad to be wrong. After that game, I knew we would make the playoff regardless of the health of Lawrence; Chase surprised the heck out of me with a couple of those kinds of throws in that game.
