Georgian wide receiver George Pickens received an unsportsmanlike penalty late in the first half against Tennessee on Saturday for squirting water from a bottle on Volunteers quarterback Jarrett Guarantano.On the first and 10 of Flights 36, Guarantano ran for a 3-yard rush before falling out of bounds towards the Georgia sideline. While Guarantano was on the ground, Pickens was seen walking towards him and squirting water from a bottle at Guarantano.
“When someone goes out of bounds and you throw water at them, what are we?” Are we 7 and 8 years old? ” Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart said. “I mean, let’s go, let’s play soccer. Let’s not be fools. ”
Pickens’ unsportsmanlike penalty gave Tennessee a first try. Five games later, Tennessee would take a 21-17 lead when Guarantano found receiver Josh Palmer for a 27-yard touchdown pass.
Georgia won 44-21.
Pickens finished with two catches for 14 yards.
