Offensive line is a problem for Georgia

Georgia defeated Ole Miss on Saturday, 37-10, but had issues on offense to start the game. Ole Miss opened the game with a 10-0 lead, while Georgia gained just 48 yards on 11 plays in first 15 minutes of the game.

Chuckdawg of Dawg Sports thinks the offensive line is still an issue for the team, and he hopes Georgia will settle on an offensive identity in the final three weeks:

I thought our O line was the biggest problem before the season, and well, I am still thinking the O Line is the biggest problem.

The offensive line did allow quarterback Aaron Murray to complete 21-of-28 passes for 384 yards and four touchdowns, but also allowed five sacks in the first half. Georgia rushed 45 times for 149 yards and one touchdown on the ground on Saturday.

Georgia will play at Auburn next Saturday with a chance to clinch a berth in the SEC Championship Game. At 6-1 in conference play, Georgia is tied with Florida for the top spot in the SEC East, but owns the tiebreaker against the Gators after they defeated them, 17-9, on Oct. 27.

Aaron Murray leads the way in Georgia's 37-10 win

Georgia QB Aaron Murray had arguably the finest performance of his career as the Bulldogs put on an offensive onslaught against the Ole Miss Rebels.


Bulldogs continues offensive surge, lead 30-10

The Bulldogs have run away with this one in the third quarter and now lead Ole Miss, 30-10, with one quarter left to play.

Aaron Murray continued to pick on the Rebels' young secondary coming out of the locker room, finding Malcolm Mitchell for his third touchdown pass of 40-plus yards (42 yards).

The Bulldogs continued their offensive surge on their next drive with some intermediate strikes from Murray setting up an 8-yard rushing touchdown from Alexander Olgetree.

The Rebels switched to Barry Brunetti at quarterback for their next drive as they searched for some more physicality on the ground. It looked like it might work, too, with Brunetti busting off runs of 8 and 6 yards before coughing up this baffling fumble to the Bulldogs:


Murray and company weren't able to turn that takeaway into points but the Bulldogs' defense did tack on two more with a safety late in the quarter.

Georgia is now in milk-the-clock mode with a 30-10 lead at the end of the third. Georgia has the ball on its own 38-yard line but is going to have to average better than its current 2.7 yards per carry for that strategy to work.


Aaron Murray's poise gives Georgia a 14-10 lead

After watching Ole Miss jump out to a 10-0 lead, Aaron Murray willed the Bulldogs back into the game as Georgia now leads 14-10 with the teams in their locker rooms.

The first quarter was relatively unexciting with both teams exchanging some sacks. Ole Miss was able to strike first though, moving 58 yards on their opening drive to set up a 34-yard field goal from Bryson Rose.

The Bulldogs opened the second quarter with Marshall Morgan hooking a 47-yard field goal to kill a promising drive. And after being handed a short field, the Rebels made Georgia pay. Bo Wallace continued to look as poised as ever, completing all five of his pass attempts on the drive to five different receivers including a 13-yard touchdown to TE Jamal Mosley.

Georgia finally found pay dirt on their next drive, as WR Marlon Brown streaked for an easy 66-yard score off Murray's beautifully executed play-action fake.

But after that touchdown stroll, things would get a little bit crazy. Starting with a fumble from RB Keith Marshall, these teams would trade four turnovers in less than 60 seconds on five consecutive plays (three fumbles, one interception from Wallace).

Following all the commotion, Murray and the Bulldogs started working some two minute drill magic, moving the ball to Ole Miss' 25 yard line. But back-to-back sacks from the Rebels defense demoralized Georgia and handed them a third-and-25. Instead of just packing it in though, Murray kept the next play alive with his feet and found Tavarres King for a gorgeous 40-yard touchdown strike.

The Bulldogs will get a chance to continue their late momentum when they get the ball back to start the second half.


Ole Miss jumps out to 3-0 lead over Georgia

The Rebels have been the only team able to put some points on the board through one quarter as Ole Miss leads Georgia 3-0.

Ole Miss received the opening kickoff and proceeded to move it 58 yards to set up a 34-yard Bryson Ross field goal. That would be the only offense in a relatively unexciting quarter.

Both of Georgia's drives would end with punts as Aaron Murray has already been sacked three times in the first 15 minutes.

Ole Miss' third drive would move 47 yards but Randall Mackey would come up one yard short of the fourth down conversion attempt on a wide receiver screen.

The quarter ended with promise for the Bulldogs as Murray found tight end Arthur Lynch for a 31-yard strike to put Georgia on Ole Miss' 41.

Georgia is going to have to put some pressure on Bo Wallace if they're to slow this Rebels offense. They've done an excellent job limiting the run game (10 attempts for -1 yard) but Wallace has looked poised an accurate, going 7-for-9 for 104 yards.
