Alabama vs. Georgia Score: Tide and Bulldogs scoreless after one

Mike Ehrmann

Georgia and Alabama are scoreless at the end of the first quarter after both teams missed out on early opportunities.

Georgia and Alabama are scoreless at the end of the first quarter in what looks like a heavyweight title fight early on with both teams feeling the other out. The Bulldogs missed on the first scoring opportunity after Jarvis Jones forced a fumble by A.J. McCarron at midfield. However, the Georgia drive stalled and Marshall Morgan's 51-yard field goal attempt went wide right.

It was the Bulldogs' turn to catch a break on the next drive. After the Bulldogs defense forced a 4th and 1, Alabama lined up for what looked like a punt attempt but was instead a fake. However, just as the up man took the snap the play was whistled dead for a delay of game.

A long completion from Aaron Murray to Tavarres King has the Bulldogs within field goal range again as the quarter closed. Murray is 6-10 for 56 yards in the opening quarter while Todd Gurley rushed six times for 32 yards. McCarron is 5-8 for 46 yards while Eddie Lacy has three carries for 21 yards.
