(6) Georgia Avoids Upset, Tops Tennessee in OT
(KNOXVILLE, Tenn.) — Aaron Murray led No. 6 Georgia on a clutch drive to send the game to overtime, and Marshall Morgan hit a 42 yard field goal in OT to give the Bulldogs a 34-31 comeback win over Tennessee Saturday.
With under two minutes to play, Aaron Murray led Georgia on a 75 yard drive that ended with Murray tossing a two yard touchdown to Rantavious Wooten to tie the game at 31 with five seconds left in the game.
The game proceeded to overtime where Tennessee received the ball first. Tennessee (3-3) was about to score but receiver Alton Howard fumbled in the endzone and Georgia recovered. That allowed the Bulldogs to set up Morgan for the game-winning field goal.
“I hit it and I knew it was good,” Morgan said. “I was just thinking — I don’t know — I just kind of lay down because I saw people running at me and my knee’s already [been] hurting all game.”
Georgia (4-1) was playing without starting running back Todd Gurley, who has an injured ankle. His replacement J.J. Green filled in admirably, running for 129 yards on 17 carries.
Murray completed 19 of 35 passes for 196 yards and three touchdowns as he became the Southeastern Conference’s all-time leader in career passing yards.
