After Georgia's defense held Buffalo to a quick three-and-out the Bulldogs offense went to work with a seven play, 53 yard drive that ended with a 10-yard touchdown run by freshman running back Todd Gurley.
The big play on the drive came on 3rd and 13 when Aaron Murray connected with wide receiver Michael Bennett on a 33 yard catch down to the Buffalo 11-yard line. Gurley punched it in on his second carry giving the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. Freshman kicker Marshall Morgan added the extra point.
Ken Malcome got the start for Georgia at running back and had two carries for nine yards. Murray completed 2 of 3 passes for 38 yards. Murray's only miss came on a long attempt where he overthrew an open Tavarres King.
