Georgia Bulldogs Vs. Florida Gators Halftime Score: 21-7, Turnovers Hurt Bulldogs Yet Again

This is not the way the Georgia Bulldogs imagined this game would go. But then again, it has been like this the last two years. The one thing that has haunted the Bulldogs at the beginning of the season is turnovers, and it has come back to bite Georgia, as two turnovers by the Bulldogs turned into 14 points for the Florida Gators.

The first turnover came from Aaron Murray when he was sacked by Ahmad Black and as Murray was going down, he fumbled the ball and was recovered by Jelani Jenkins. That led to a Jeff Demps 2-yard touchdown run to put the Gators up 14-7.

The second turnover came on the next drive as Murray pass was intercepted by Will Hill. Florida wasted no time to put more points on the board as John Brantley threw a 40-yard to Demps which led to a Trey Burton 1-yard touchdown run to put the Gators up 21-7 before the half.

Georgia has not played a bad game, it's the turnovers that have put the Bulldogs in a hole. What they need to do is regroup, refocus and just play their game. If they can stop turning the ball over, they can get back in this game. But the players have to believe they can get back in the game because if they don't, it's going to be a long second half for Georgia.
