No. 3 Georgia Earns Governor's Cup, Crushes Tech 42-10
Georgia jumped out quickly taking the opening drive 44 yards in just over a minute as Gurley scored on a short run. Malcolm Mitchell set up the drive with a 47-yard kickoff return.
Tech tried to answer, driving the length of the field, but Bacarri Rambo stripped David Sims at the one yard line and returned the fumble out to midfield. The Bulldogs used an 8-play drive to go up 14 culmonating in a 1-yard plunge by Gurley.
Georgia's third drive was of the 3-play 85-yard variety as Murray found Mitchell on a 77-yard deep pass before Marshall would finish off the drive with runs of 13 and 15 yards.
Alec Ogletree led the team with 15 tackles including one for a loss. Christian Robinson had 13 tackles, two for a loss. In addition to his forced fumble and recovery, Rambo had an interception that tied him for the school record for career interceptions (16) with Jake Scott.
Georgia will play in the SEC Championship Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET. The Bulldogs will play either Alabama or LSU depending on the outcome of Alabama's game against Auburn to be played Saturday afternoon.
