Stetson Bennett IV is starting at quarterback for Georgia against UAB on Saturday. Quarterback Carson Beck will also be available. Starter JT Daniels is dealing with an oblique injury, and though it is mild, the thinking is he may need a bit more rest before Georgia begins its SEC schedule.

After Georgia faces off with UAB, the defending Conference USA champion, it hosts South Carolina on Sept. 18 in the first of eight consecutive SEC games.

Daniels could still suit up and play in an emergency situation. He practiced on Wednesday, sharing time with Beck, who would be playing in his first college game.
