ATHENS, Ga. -- On a largely drama-free G-Day, Christian LeMay and Jay Rome combined to provide a reason to pay attention in the waning moments of Georgia's spring game.

The two redshirt freshmen connected on a 66-yard touchdown pass with 59 seconds to play, pulling their Black team within a point of the Red team at 32-31. LeMay's two-point pass attempt to Rhett McGowan glanced off the receiver's fingertips, allowing the Red to escape with a victory, but the sequence was big for LeMay, who hopes to become the Bulldogs' backup quarterback this fall.

"It doesn’t matter if I'm playing checkers, I want to win," LeMay said. “I was like, 'Hey, guys, we're about to score.' I believe that if we have any time left on the clock, we can score -- especially with the offense that we have and the players.
