Georgia Bulldogs Vs. Florida Gators: Last Year's Game

The Georgia Bulldogs looked to do something different going into their contest against the Florida Gators last year. Head coach Mark Richt thought the players would be more motivated with a change of uniform, so the team wore balck helmets and black pants along with the white jerseys.

That was the only good thing (well, if you want to call that a good thing) to come out of the game last year as Florida dominated the Bulldogs 41-17. 

It was a relatively close game in the second quarter as Georgia was only down 17-10 late in the second quarter. But right before the half, Mr. Everything himself TIm Tebow ran for a 23-yard touchdown with less than two minutes left in the half and that put the Gators on top 24-10 going in to the half and the Gators never looked back.

It was a game where Tebow broke Herschel Walker's SEC career rushing touchdown record and Georgia fell to 4-4 for the first time since 1996.

Here is video highlights of the game from last year. Hopefully, Georgia won't come out as flat as they had the last two years, but it's something about Jacksonville that freaks the Bulldogs out.
