Carson Beck replaces Stetson Bennett

The fourth-year junior has taken over the starting quarterback job in Georgia football.

Carson Beck's patience has finally been rewarded.

Coach Kirby Smart said after the second preseason scrimmage on Saturday, "Carson Beck is going to be our starting quarterback."

Coach Kirby Smart said that "the best thing he has done."

The announcement came as Beck held onto the No. 1 spot throughout the preseason.

In this position, he put distance between himself and Brock Vandgriff and Gunner Stockton this spring.

Carson Beck had already received a "pretty good amount" of first-team reps this preseason.

"We're kind of dealing with that," Smart said.
