Georgia survived one of the ugliest games in recent team history Saturday against Missouri, but it didn't come easy. 

Things looked particularly grim when senior place kicker Marshall Morgan missed a 26-yard field goal that would have been the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter. Fortunately for Georgia, Marshall was given another shot to redeem myself. 

After having a heart-to-heart with head coach Mark Richt, Morgan went out and earned the SEC's Special Teams Player of the Week award in the 9-6 win. 

• Morgan connected on three field goals and for the first time since 1995, Georgia won without scoring a touchdown, posting a 9-6 victory over Missouri.

• He made a game-winning 34-yarder for a 9-6 edge with 1:44 left and it was Morgan's second career game-winner to go with a 42-yarder to beat Tennessee in overtime in 2013 in Knoxville.

• Morgan is tied for fourth on the SEC all-time list with 371 career points (Tennessee's Jeff Hall).
