Some excellent run-stuffing on Mississippi State’s part caused Georgia’s third offensive drive of the day to stall in the red zone, but UGA still got points out of it. A 25-yard field goal from Blair Walsh makes it 7-3.
FIrst-quarter stats: Georgia leads in passing yards (105 to 38) and is nearly tied in rushing yards (45 to State’s 46), for an overall yardage edge of 150 to 84. The Ealey turnover, of course, has made all the difference thus far.
Walsh’s subsequent kickoff put the ball well toward the back of the end zone, so MSU will begin their third drive of the night from their own 20.
