Ole Miss vs. Georgia: Damian Swann becoming impact player

Damian Swann helped the Georgia Bulldogs maintain momentum against Ole Miss.

Georgia cornerback Damian Swann recovered two fumbles, had a sack, broke up a pass and made three total tackles in the Bulldogs' 37-10 win over Ole Miss on Saturday at Sanford Stadium. The sophomore out of Atlanta helped swing the momentum into Georgia's favor, and is proving to be an impact player for the Dawgs.

A key play from Swann came when Ole Miss had the ball at Georgia's 31-yard line and held a 10-7 lead. Bacarri Rambo was able to force a fumble from receiver Vince Sanders, and Swann was able to pick it up and make a 53 yard return.

That was right at the point when Georgia and Ole Miss combined for four turnovers in five snaps. There was also Georgia's turnover on downs after Alec Ogletree's interception.

"It was really big for us," Swann said. "Coach Grantham always preaches winning the second chances. We were backed up and we had to do what we had to do. We'd just turned it over and we needed to come back and get it back with a strip of our own. I just happened to pick it up."
