Georgia Vs. Ole Miss Final Score: Dawgs Pick Up Decisive SEC Win

Did you watch the first half between the Georgia Bulldogs and Mississippi Rebels? Then you saw pretty much everything that happened here. UGA entered the second half up 24-13, and nobody scored until Blair Walsh booted in a short field goal with four minutes remaining. 

Walsh, one of the best at his position in the country, actually missed three kicks on the day, meaning it should've been 36-13 at that point. Georgia put up 274 more yards than Ole Miss did, so yeah.

Bacarri Rambo's second interception of the day all but sealed the game with a couple minutes left, leaving Isaiah Crowell to run down some clock. Crowell finished with 147 yards on 30 carries, with another freshman, Malcolm Mitchell, leading the Dawgs in receiving yards (92).

Nobody knows whether this is a game Mark Richt needed to win or not, but pretty much everybody agrees Houston Nutt needed to at least look competitive here. His team absolutely did not. Richt has now won nine straight games against Ole Miss.
