Georgia vs. Florida Score: Bulldogs enter halftime leading 7-6

Despite Aaron Murray's three interceptions in the first half, the No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs enter halftime leading their SEC East rival Florida Gators, the No. 2 team in the nation, by the score of 7-6 at Everbank Field.

After holding the Gators scoreless in the the first half, the roles reversed in the second quarter as the Bulldogs were held scoreless. Instead, it was Florida scoring 6 points in the second quarter, after a pair of successful field goals by kicker Caleb Sturgis.

The Bulldogs' offense has been carried by freshman running back Todd Gurley, who has rushed for 79 yards in 13 first-half carries and one touchdown. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has struggled mightily, throwing a pair of interceptions in the second quarter to make it three on the day. Both turnovers led to all six of Florida's points on the day.

Fortunately for the Bulldogs, they were able to force the Gators into yet another turnover to end the first half, picking off a pass for the interception. Otherwise, Florida would have likely entered halftime with a lead.
