UGA Spring Game: Aaron Murray, Branden Smith Connect For Score

The 2011 Georgia Bulldogs spring game finally got its first touchdown, with Aaron Murray’s Black team putting together a nice drive to make it 10-5 early in the third quarter. Orson Charles made a nice pair of catches during the possession, with Branden Smith delivering a highlight reel 28-yard touchdown run-after-catch that included a solid stiff arm on Derek Owens.

Facing a five-point deficit, the Red team almost opted to go for it on fourth down with Greg Bingham in at QB. Christian LeMay re-entered the game on the following drive, throwing an incompletion and giving Derrick Lott his second sack of the day. Lott has been very busy on defense.

Hutson Mason’s bid to maintain his backup spot on the depth chart took a slight ding when he gave up an interception to walk-on Connor Norman, who also broke up a pass earlier in the game.

Kwame Geathers and Jarvis Jones are earning kudos from the WSB broadcast, various websites, and my viewing associates alike. Jones earned the sack that ended the first half, and Geathers has been imposing against the run. Granted, a pair of offensive linemen including Trinton Sturdivant are out of this game, but both front sevens are looking pretty good.
