Georgia holds on to edge rival Florida 23-20
Todd Gurley scored twice in his first game in more than a month,
helping Georgia beat rival Florida 23-20 on Saturday.
Gurley returned from an ankle injury and totaled 187 yards,
finding the end zone on a 5-yard run and a 73-yard reception. The
Bulldogs scored on their first four possessions, taking a 20-0 lead
that looked as if it would be enough against one of the
Southeastern Conference’s most anemic offenses.
But the Gators rallied, taking advantage of a fumble, a safety
and some questionable play calls to seize momentum in a weird,
wacky and chippy game.
Florida cut it to 23-20 early in the fourth, putting Georgia
(5-3, 4-2 SEC) on its heels after a failed fourth-down run followed
by a huge defensive penalty. But the Gators (4-4, 3-3) faltered
down the stretch.
