Lorenzo Carter wears ‘Savage’ shoulder pads after Georgia win
Georgia’s Lorenzo Carter sported an awesome set of shoulder pads after Georgia defeated Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl.
During the second overtime period of an epic college football playoff game, Carter blocked a 27-yard field goal attempt by Austin Seiber to keep the score deadlocked 48-48. Two plays later, Bulldogs running back Sony Michel scored a touchdown to send Georgia to this year’s national championship game. You can see the blocked kick below.

After the game, Carter sported a set of gold shoulder pads with black spikes on them. On the front is Georgia’s logo and the words “Attack the day” and “Attack the ball.” The back contains the word “SAVAGE.”

The shoulder pads are awarded as an incentive for turnovers, much like the “turnover chain” made popular by the University of Miami this season. Based on social media, it sounds like some like the shoulder pads over the turnover chain.
