No. 6 Georgia Beats Ole Miss, Moves to 8-1
Junior QB Aaron Murry tossed four TD passes to four different receivers as Georgia rebounded from a slow start to post a 37-10 victory over Ole Miss in Sanford Stadium on Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Bulldogs improved to 8-1 on the year and 6-1 in the SEC and moved one step closer to a return trip to the SEC Championship.
Georgia was held scoreless in the first quarter and only managed to net 48 yards of offense but in the second quarter the Georgia coaches dialed in a classic, the hidden ball play-action pass. On 3rd and 1 from their own 34, Murray sold the handoff fake wonderfully fully turning his back to the action for a second and then hit a wide open Marlon Brown for a 61-yard TD score.
In the second quarter Georgia and Ole Miss traded turnovers, four in all, over five plays that spanned under a minute. Georgia came out with the final turnover but turned the ball over on downs soon after.
Later in the second, Georgia had worked the ball down to Mississippi's 25 but, after two sacks, faced 3rd and 25 from the 40 with 12 seconds to go and no timeouts. Murray scrambled and hit Tavarres King in the endzone leaving just seconds on the clock for Ole Miss.
Murray tossed his final TD pass of the day a beautiful 23-yard score to Rantavious Wooten.
Georgia hits the road for the final time in the regular season when the Bulldogs travel to Auburn for a 7:00 p.m. ET clash next Saturday.
