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.
