Green Is Back As Bulldogs Take The Lead At Halftime

To say the Bulldogs missed A.J. Green and to also say Green missed playing would be an understatement. He is the spark this team needed and the emotional lift the team missed the last month.

After Coloroado scoring on their opening drive of the quarter via Brian Lockridge 1-yard touchdown run, it was all Georgia after that. On the ensuing drive, Green took an end-around and took it 40 yards which led to a Aaron Murray 3-yard touchdown pass to Green (look at the youtube video of the catch because it's just amazing).

Later in the quarter, Georgia got the ball back on the Colorado 39-yard line thanks to a big Branden Smith punt return and on the first play of the series, Murray threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Green to take the lead and go into halftime with the momentum.

This was a quarter the Bulldogs needed after scoring only one touchdown in the previous two road games, they score two in one quarter and could have scored two more if they were more efficient in the endzone. Regardless if they need to keep doing, they will come away with a win.
