Georgia Drops Outback Bowl To Michigan State in OT 33-30

Tampa Bay, Fla. --- Senior Brandon Boykin made the most of his final bowl game scoring on a safety, a punt return and a reception but Georgia fell to Michigan State 33-30 on a blocked field goal in the third overtime at the Outback Bowl in Tampa.

Georgia got the scoring started with a safety on Michigan State's first offensive play as Boykin tackled Keshawn Martin two yards into the end zone.

The teams traded punts for most of the first half until Georgia exploded at the end of the half. Aaron Murray found Tavarres King for an 80-yard TD to put Georgia up 9-0.

Moments later, after a 3 and out, Michigan State punted to Boykin. Boykin caught the ball at the 8 and evaded the Spartans for a big 92-yard punt return giving Georgia a 16-0 lead.
