ATHENS - Georgia Bulldogs DL Jordan Davis scored a one-yard touchdown to get the Bulldogs up 7-0 against Charleston Southern. 

Davis is a dark horse Heisman Trophy candidate, and today's score will do a little more to spotlight the 340-pound Charlotte native. Davis took two handoffs from Georgia QB Stetson Bennett to punch the ball in on CSU. 

Davis and the No. 1 Bulldogs have used their defense to power their way to a fourth SEC East title since 2017. Georgia has been ranked as the No. 1 team in the country by the College Football Playoff Committee for all of the rankings this season. 

Davis has been named one of six semifinalists for the 2021 Outland Trophy, given annually to the nation's top interior lineman by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).

Davis has helped Georgia lead the nation in scoring defense (7.6 points/game), rank second nationally in rushing defense (78.2 yards/game) and total defense (247.0 ypg).  He anchors the interior line with 23 tackles and 3.5 sacks.  Opponents have scored just 76 points on the Bulldogs, and no team has registered more than 17 points.

Davis is also a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and a semifinalist for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and for the Chuck Bednarik Award.  In addition, he is a finalist for the Senior CLASS (Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School) Award.
