Bulldogs lead Gators 10-6 after 3rd quarter

With control of the SEC East on the line, the No. 10 Georiga Bulldogs were able to extend their lead over the undefeated No. 2 Florida Gators to 10-6 after the third quarter of play at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla..

The third quarter continued the tale of the first half, as only 3 points were scored and each team's defensive unit continued to play dominant football. But it was the Bulldogs who completely dominated in the quarter, holding the Gators scoreless and forcing them into two more turnovers in the game as the Bulldogs' defense continued to roll.

Fortunately for the Bulldogs, they were able to expand their 1-point lead after kicker Marshall Morgan's field goal attempt from 29 yards out was good.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, they were unable to expand their lead to 7 points, as Morgan later was wide left and missed on a field goal from 37 yards out.

The Bulldogs will open the fourth quarter with a 4-point lead and a chance to control their own destiny in the SEC East, but will first need to close out the quarter by holding off the Gators.

Bulldogs enter halftime leading 7-6

Despite Aaron Murray's three interceptions in the first half, the No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs enter halftime leading their SEC East rival Florida Gators, the No. 2 team in the nation, by the score of 7-6 at Everbank Field.

After holding the Gators scoreless in the the first half, the roles reversed in the second quarter as the Bulldogs were held scoreless. Instead, it was Florida scoring 6 points in the second quarter, after a pair of successful field goals by kicker Caleb Sturgis.

The Bulldogs' offense has been carried by freshman running back Todd Gurley, who has rushed for 79 yards in 13 first-half carries and one touchdown. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has struggled mightily, throwing a pair of interceptions in the second quarter to make it three on the day. Both turnovers led to all six of Florida's points on the day.

Fortunately for the Bulldogs, they were able to force the Gators into yet another turnover to end the first half, picking off a pass for the interception. Otherwise, Florida would have likely entered halftime with a lead.

Bulldogs lead Gators 7-0 after 1st quarter

The No. 10 ranked Georgia Bulldogs lead the No. 2 Florida Gators by the score of 7-0, after one quarter of play at Everbank Field in a match up of the two top SEC East teams.

The Bulldogs jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter and had their presence felt on both sides of the ball, forcing a turnover in Florida territory on the very first drive of the game. The Bulldogs were able to take advantage on the turnover, thanks to freshman running back Todd Gurley's 10 yard rush for the score.

The undefeated Gators have played sloppy on both sides of the ball and have allowed 45 yards on the ground in the first quarter alone, which has to be shocking for one of the elite defensive units in all of the nation.

Meanwhile, Georgia is taking advantage of their run game and are averaging 6.4 yards per carry. Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray has completed four of five passes for 34 yards, but also has thrown one interception.
