JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Georgia is switching quarterbacks for its biggest game of the season. Faton Bauta was announced as the team's starting quarterback about a half hour before kickoff against No. 11 Florida in Jacksonville.
Bauta replaces Greyson Lambert, who has been inconsistent all season. It will be Bauta's first career start.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Bauta, a junior from West Palm Beach, should give the Bulldogs a more athletic presence at the position. Bauta has played in all seven games this season, but only as the holder on extra points and field goals.
He has completed 4-of-5 passes for 48 yards in six career games before this season. He also has run 10 times for 46 yards.
