Florida Gators 34, Georgia Bulldogs 31: Game Over, Let's Get Hammered

For the first time in its history, the Georgia-Florida game went into overtime . . . and for the first time in his head-coaching career, Mark Richt lost an OT game. Aaron Murray got picked off by Will Hill on 3rd down in Georgia’s opening overtime possession (and the Dawgs just barely avoided losing the game on a pick-six when Hill turned it around and Tavarres King managed to tackle him just short of the goal line). In their ensuing possession, Florida only gained five yards, but that was all they needed to put Chas Henry in position for a successful 37-yard field goal.

Hell of a game. Hell of an ending. Hell of a lot of drinking Georgia fans will be doing tonight (myself included) to dull the sting of this one.
