Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo spoke to the media after a 45-31 win in the 2013 Capital One Bowl and told reporters in the press conference some of what he told the struggling offense at halftime.

"I don't know if [Aaron Murray] was pressing too much or trying to make a play every play. That was kind of the message at halftime. I really said it to the whole team, but it was really to him: 'Guys, we got 300 yards, but some of us are trying to score a touchdown every play. Just settle down and play and we'll be fine.'"

Murray threw two interceptions in the first quarter of the game before bouncing back with five touchdowns and more than 400 yards passing against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Bulldogs scored the last 22 points of the game to rally from a 31-23 deficit and earn a two-touchdown victory. The Bulldogs finished with 589 yards of total offense and averaged 7.9 yards per play in the game.

Bobo, 38, was a quarterback for the Bulldogs from 1994-1997 and was named the MVP in the 1998 Outback Bowl. After serving as a graduate assistant and a coach for Jacksonville State, he joined Georgia as a quarterbacks coach in 2001 before he was promoted to the offensive coordinator position in 2006.
