Trailing by 14 points at halftime against the Florida Gators, the Georgia Bulldogs rallied back to extend the game into extra time. This is the first time in rivalry history a game has gone into overtime.
SEC villain Chris Rainey scored the opening touchdown for Florida as Georgia QB Aaron Murray came out very shaky, turning the ball over twice early. The Gators held A.J. Green in check, allowing only four catches for 42 yards. Although one of those catches was an obscene touchdown snag in triple coverage.
Florida’s offense was downright lethal compared to its previous efforts, and it looks like the bye week actually did some good. Jonathan Brantley passed downfield with considerable success, but Trey Burton carried the day. With 17 carries for 110 yards and two touchdowns, plus two passes for 26 more yards, Burton made the difference for the Gators.
Florida punter Chas Henry carved his name into Cocktail Party history, hitting his first two career field goals, including the overtime game-winner.
