Bennett is the fourth straight quarterback from the Southeastern Conference to earn the honor,” the Allstate Sugar Bowl announced.
“Georgia’s Stetson Bennett selected as winner of Manning Award, presented by Allstate Sugar Bowl to nation’s top QB that takes into consideration the candidates’ bowl & playoff performances in its balloting. Bennett is 4th straight SEC QB to win Manning Award,” said Brett McMurphy.
Archie Manning: “I’m not sure we’ve ever had an honoree who showcased his ability and proved his worth all the way through the postseason like Stetson did this year. We’re thrilled to recognize him as this year’s Manning Award winner”
Well deserved for the former Georgia quarterback.
