Buffalo Vs. Georgia: Freshman See First Action For Bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs had little trouble putting away the Buffalo Bulls in the Bulldogs' season opener on Saturday, and it was production from some true freshman that helped allow Georgia to coast to their first victory of the 2012 season.

Most impressively, running back Todd Gurley rushed for an even 100 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries against the Bulls defense, more than living up to the recruiting hype he garnered. Gurley also returned a kickoff 100 yards for a score.

Aside from Gurley, plenty of other first-year players stood out on Saturday, including starters kicker Marshall Morgan, punter Collin Barber and right tackle John Theus.

"We did have some freshmen taking some snaps ... I really do like this freshman class," Georgia coach Mark Richt told DogBytes. "I've been impressed with them athletically. They're very coachable, teachable ...I think we did a good job recruiting that class."
