Alabama vs. Georgia score: Alec Ogletree returns blocked FG for TD, T.J. Yeldon answers back

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia's Alec Ogletree returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown to put the Bulldogs up 21-10 but freshman T.J. Yeldon answered back to make the score 21-18.

Georgia finally broke through with a huge special team play blocking an Alabama field goal attempt and returning it for a touchdown to go up 21-10. Alec Ogletree scooped up the block and raced 50 yards for the score.

The play is not without some controversy. The ensuing play Georgia DB Brandon Smith was initially flagged for pass interference. The flag was picked up because the officials ruled that the pass was tipped. Replays of the play looked inconclusive but the play resulted in Alabama having to attempt a 49-yard field goal.

Alabama scored the last 10 points of the first half but Georgia retook the lead with a 75-yard drive to open the second half. The blocked field goal completely swung the momentum and leaves Alabama needing to answer quickly.

The Tide went back to work on the ground after a personal foul penalty on the kickoff set them up with good field position. T.J. Yeldon punched in the score from 10-yards out and also ran in the two point conversion to make the score 21-18.

The Bulldogs have now been hit with seven penalties resulting in 64 yards. Alabama has been whistled for one penalty for just five yards.
