VIDEO: Brandon Boykin's 92-Yard Punt Return Gives Georgia 16-0 Lead

With Michigan State's highly-rated defense preventing Georgia from putting together long drives, the Bulldogs have opened up the Outback Bowl with big plays on both offense and special teams.

Late in the second quarter, Georgia CB Brandon Boykin returned a Mike Sadler punt 92 yards for a TD, running all the way back to the Bulldogs two-yard line before weaving his way untouched through the over-extended Spartans punt return team:

The play gives Boykin five career punt returns TD's, and it may end up being the final highlight of an excellent four-year career in Athens.

The 5'10 183 CB is already the career kickoff return leader at Georgia, and he is the only player in SEC history with three plays of 100+ yards.

A three-year starter in the defensive back-field, Boykin was named as a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award as a senior.

He has 9 career interceptions and 152 tackles, including a textbook tackle on a bubble screen for a safety that gave the Bulldogs an early 2-0 lead.
