Georgia Vs. Georgia Tech Halftime Score: Georgia Takes 17-10 Lead Thanks To Tech Timeout

Paul Johnson's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets could've taken a four-point deficit and the benefit of a strong last drive on offense to the locker room at halftime, but his timeout to "freeze" Blair Walsh ended up giving the Georgia kicker a second chance - Walsh missed the first kick attempt from 41 yards after Johnson called the timeout, but nailed the next try.

The Bulldogs looked especially efficient moving the ball with just 1:13 remaining in the half after a Tech touchdown drive cut their lead to 14-10, including a 22-yard scramble from quarterback Aaron Murray. But Tavares King would step out of bounds a yard short on an uncovered completion to create a 3rd and 1 Georgia wouldn't be able to convert on, setting up the Walsh field goal. 

Murray is 13 of 18 at the half for 193 yards and two touchdowns. He threw an interception on the Bulldogs' opening drive, but has looked nearly flawless since. Led by A-back Roddy Jones (seven carries, 55 yards) Georgia Tech has run the ball 30 times for 164 yards (5.5 a carry, which is actually less than UGA's 6.8 average with only nine attempts).
