Today they are teammates, but it wasn’t always like that for Jarvis Jones and Le’Veon Bell.
After the 2011 season, Georgia went against Michigan State in the Outback Bowl, a game matching the No. 2 teams from the SEC and Big 10. In that game, Bell rushed for 48 yards on 17 carries, but he scored two touchdowns, of 8 yards and 1 yard, in what turned into a triple overtime victory for Bell’s Spartans. Bell also caught five passes for 39 yards in the game, and that 1-yard touchdown run of his came with 14 seconds left and was what sent the game into overtime in the first place.
“Big, strong, physical guy,” said Jones about Bell. “They beat us in double overtime. He’s one of the running backs that I definitely respect, and I love his game. And he’s going to have a bright future.
“He’s huge, and we were saying the same thing when we got the scouting report on him a couple of years ago,” added Jones. “But when you’re built like that and can move like him, you’ve got a bright future. I definitely know that being teammates now, we just have to come in and get the ball rolling.”
