Even with JT Daniels back available, Georgia is sticking with Stetson Bennett as its starting QB against Florida on Saturday, sources told On3.

Bennett and Daniels, who has been out since Sept. 25 with a lat injury, shared time with Georgia’s first-team offense in practice during the lead-up to the game.

Aided by Bennett, Georgia has beaten ranked opponents in each of its last three games — then-No. 8 Arkansas (37-0 in Week 5), then-No. 18 Auburn (34-10 in Week 6) and then-No. 11 Kentucky (30-13 in Week 7).

In the wins over Auburn and Kentucky, Bennett was a combined 28 of 41 with 481 passing yards, 63 rushing yards, five passing touchdowns and no interceptions.

Daniels, a preseason second-team All-SEC selection, was 9 of 10 for 129 yards with two touchdown passes in his most recent action, a 62-0 Week 4 win over Vanderbilt.

Georgia enters the matchup against Florida as a 14-point favorite.
