Outback Bowl History Georgia will be making its fourth appearance in the Outback Bowl where the Bulldogs are 3-0 and fifth overall appearance in a bowl game in Tampa. In 1986, the game was called the “Hall of Fame Bowl” and the Bulldogs fell to Boston College 27-24. Outback became the title sponsor of the bowl game in 1995. Georgia’s wins in the Outback Bowl have come over Wisconsin (33-6, 1998), Purdue (28-25 OT, 2000) and Wisconsin (24-21, 2005). A Bulldog has been named the MVP of the game in three of the four appearances (1986, coMVPs in Gary Moss-CB and James Jackson-QB; 1998, Mike Bobo-QB; 2005, David Pollack-DE). In the 2000 game, Purdue’s Drew Brees earned MVP honors as the Boilermakers built a 25-0 lead on the Bulldogs who rallied for a 28-25 overtime victory. It remains a record comeback in Outback Bowl history. Head coach Mark Richt was at the helm when No. 7 Georgia defeated Wisconsin in 2005. This marked the highest ranked team to ever play at the Outback Bowl.

Did You Know During the 2011 season, Georgia went on a 10-game winning streak. This was the longest inseason winning streak since the 1982 team under Vince Dooley went a perfect 11-0 during the regular season. Under Mark Richt, UGA won 11 straight games over a span of two seasons, winning the final seven in 2007 and the first four contests in 2008.

Georgia Among Bowl Leaders Georgia will be playing in a bowl game for a record 15th consecutive season in 2011. The Bulldogs are one of the top five bowl teams of all-time. The Bulldogs will make their 47th appearance in post-season play at the 2012 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla. The Bulldogs’ bowl record is 26-17-3.

Leading The NCAA Senior PK Blair Walsh is the NCAA’s active career leader in total points with 404. Walsh’s point total ranks second all-time in UGA and SEC history behind former Bulldog Billy Bennett (409, 200003). Junior FS Bacarri Rambo is second in the NCAA in interception return yards with 241. This has come on 12 interceptions. The 241 return yards ranks third in school history.

The Bulldogs have benefitted from a quick start this season, outscoring their opponents 105-27 in the first quarter. In fact, the Bulldogs outscored their SEC foes 63-20 in the opening period.

Senior Trio & Versatile Guards Hold Line Together

Georgia has a senior-laden offensive line featuring C Ben Jones, LT Cordy Glenn and RT Justin Anderson. A trio of sophomores in Kenarious Gates, Chris Burnette and Dallas Lee have split time at the guards this year. Jones was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week for two weeks straight following the Auburn and New Mexico State games. Lee played in the first in the first eight games, but he suffered a broken bone in his right leg against Florida on Oct. 29. He is slated to return in the bowl game. The five starters average a height of 6-4 and a weight of 329. Glenn leads with 49 starts, including the last 46 games. Jones has started 48 games. The most starts for a Bulldog lineman is 50 by Clint Boling (2007-10), who is now playing for the Cincinnati Bengals after graduating from UGA. Fifty starts ranks second in school history.

Backfield In Motion

Due to injuries and suspensions, the Bulldogs have had an array of ball carriers get an opportunity this season. Redshirt freshman Ken Malcome became the fourth different starting tailback for the Bulldogs this season when he got the nod versus #25 Georgia Tech on Nov. 26. Then, Malcome had a team-best 37 yards on five carries against top-ranked LSU in the SEC Championship Game. Georgia had its third different 100-yard rusher of the season in the win over Kentucky. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Harton went for 101 yards on 23 carries (4.4 avg.). Against #24 Auburn, freshman Isaiah Crowell (132 yds.)and junior Carlton Thomas (127 yds.) gave the Bulldogs a pair of 100-yard rushers in the same game for the first time since the 2009 Georgia Tech game. In fact, the duo helped UGA tally 304 yards rushing against the Tigers, which was the most yards on the ground for Georgia since the 2009 Georgia Tech game (339). Crowell has recorded four 100-yard games versus SEC competition this season and been named SEC Freshman of the Week four times. He did not play versus the Yellow Jackets and was in for just three plays against Kentucky the week before due to an ankle injury. Also, junior CB Branden Smith got his third career start at TB (first of 2011) and recorded a 56-yard scoring run in the win over New Mexico State. Versus the Yellow Jackets, he had five carries for 20 yards. Junior Richard Samuel IV, who has started three games in 2011, suffered an ankle injury in the final play of the Florida game that sidelined him for the remainder of the regular season. Against the Gators, Samuel paced Georgia’s offense with 58 yards on seven carries and scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. He is expected to play in the bowl game. Can’t Cover Them All The Bulldogs have been attacking the opposition with a wide variety of weapons at receiver. Six players have recorded more than 200 yards receiving and four of those have at least 30 catches. In fact, QB Aaron Murray has thrown touchdowns to 10 different Bulldogs this season. Freshman Malcolm Mitchell is leading the corps with 614 yards on 38 catches and four touchdowns. Mitchell missed three games with a hamstring injury, but returned versus #24 Auburn to snag three receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown. Junior TE and Mackey Award finalist Orson Charles (team-high 44 rec., 572 yds., 5 TDs) and junior FLK Tavarres King (41 rec., 500 yds., team-high 7 TDs) have also been Murray’s top targets this season. Redshirt freshman Michael Bennett scored his fifth TD of the year versus #25 Georgia Tech and has hauled in 31 balls for 316 yards this season. True freshman Chris Conley picked up his second career touchdown versus the Yellow Jackets. He is averaging a team-best 18.0 yards per catch. Junior Marlon Brown has added 14 catches for 228 yards and three scores, including a 121-yard performance at Vanderbilt.

SEC Sack Leader Jarvis Jones Approaching School Record

Sophomore OLB and Butkus Award finalist Jarvis Jones leads the SEC and is third nationally with 13.5 sacks (minus 90 yds.). He is also No. 1 in the league with 19.5 tackles for loss. Jones posted a whopping 12 quarterback hurries in the win over Kentucky. David Pollack (2002) holds the single season sack record with 14. The Bulldog defense has tallied 34 sacks in 2011 and 33 of those sacks came in SEC action. The team leader in tackles is Jones with 69 while junior ILB Mike Gilliard and junior SS Shawn Williams each have 65. Gilliard has been the team leader in tackles five games this year and had his first career interception in the win over #25 Georgia Tech. Jones exploded for four sacks and five tackles against the Gators and was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. In the last four games, Jones added 23 tackles, including 5.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Torrent Of Tackles For Ogletree

Sophomore ILB Alec Ogletree has led the Bulldogs in tackles the last four games. He exploded for a career-high 11 tackles, including 10 solo stops, versus #25 Georgia Tech on Nov. 26 in Atlanta. Then, he had a team-high six tackles and a sack versus #1 LSU in the SEC Championship game. He’s collected 31 in this four-game stretch to give him 39 in 2011. Ogletree returned for the win over Florida on Oct. 29 after missing six games with a foot injury sustained in the opener versus #5 Boise State.

Plugging The Middle

During Georgia’s 10-game winning streak, the Bulldog defensive front held its opponents to an average of 75.7 yards. For example, No. 24 Auburn came into Athens on Nov. 12 with the league’s second-ranked rushing offense (191.1/g) and left with just 51 yards on 25 carries. The Bulldogs are getting solid production from its two nose tackles in junior John Jenkins and redshirt sophomore Kwame Geathers, along with ends junior Abry Jones, senior DeAngelo Tyson and sophomore Garrison Smith.

Secondary Boosts Turnover Margin

Georgia is tied for 22nd nationally in turnover margin (+7), thanks in large part to 17 interceptions, including 16 by the secondary. Junior FS Bacarri Rambo is second in the nation with seven, including his last pick versus No. 24 Auburn that he took 24 yards for a score. Rambo is the team’s active leader with 12 INTs. Senior Brandon Boykin has started 37 games in his career. He has 48 tackles, including nine tackles for loss, and three INTs this year. Like Boykin, CB Branden Smith is a versatile threat who has also seen time on offense and special teams. CB Sanders Commings and SS Shawn Williams round out the usual starters in the backfield. Williams ranks second on the team with 65 stops and has three picks on the year, including an acrobatic INT versus #25 Georgia Tech.

The Butler Keeps Doing It

Georgia senior Academic All-American and All-SEC punter Drew Butler is one of the nation’s top punters and student-athletes. He is a two-time Ray Guy Award finalist and took home the hardware in 2009. Versus #1 LSU, he set an SEC Championship Game record by averaging 51.6 yards on eight punts, including a season-long 62 yarder. Against Vanderbilt, Butler made a game-saving tackle with seven seconds left on the Georgia 22-yard line following a blocked punt. The Bulldogs held on for a 33-28 win. Butler is the son of former NFL standout and Bulldog All-American Kevin Butler.

CAREER PUNTING AVERAGE 45.5 - Drew Butler, 2008-11 {currently 7,283 yards/160 punts) Note: Current SEC record: Ricky Anderson, VU (1983-84) - 45.6; UGA record: Chip Andrews, (1983-84) - 43.2 {4,706 yds./109 punts) *NCAA rec.: Todd Sauerbrun, WVA (1991-94) - 46.3 {7,733 yds./167 punts); * - minimum 150 punts

404 Career Points For Walsh

Senior PK Blair Walsh has been one of the nation’s top placekickers since 2009. He was a semifinalist in 2010 and a finalist in 2009 for the Lou Groza Award.

Georgia’s 49 points tied for the most in one half dating back to 1950. The Bulldogs also scored 49 versus Northeast Louisiana in 1994. Georgia scored 42 points in the second quarter alone. Available records dating back to 1958 show that the Bulldogs have never reached 42 points in a quarter. The most was 35 versus Idaho State in 2010 and William & Mary in 1988. Georgia’s 42 points came on six drives in the second quarter that covered 7:57. It is believed to be the most points scored by a team in a brief period since Fresno State scored 49 in 6:25 against Utah State in 2001. Points And Total Offense Georgia’s 63 points versus New Mexico State was the most under Mark Richt, and the most since 1994 when it beat Northeast Louisiana 70-6. The Bulldogs tallied 627 yards of total offense, the most under Richt, and the most since a school record of 667 against Southern Miss in 1993. Georgia had nine different Bulldogs score a TD in the victory over NMS. This marks the most Georgia players to find the end zone in a game since 1958.

2011 Game Summaries

#5 BOISE STATE

Sept. 3, 2011 • Georgia Dome - Athens, Ga. The Georgia Bulldogs suffered a 35-21 loss to the fifth-ranked Boise State Broncos in the 2011 season opener on Sept. 3 in the Chick-fil-A Kick-Off Game in front of a crowd of 73,614 at the Georgia Dome and a ESPN national television audience. The loss moves them to 89-26-3 in season openers, including 9-2 under Mark Richt. This game marked the first time since 1965 that Georgia opened a season against a team ranked among the top-five nationally. The win evens Boise States’s record against Georgia at 1-1. Georgia senior cornerback Brandon Boykin made his first career play on offense with an 80-yard touchdown run to give UGA a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Boise State answered quickly as senior quarterback Kellen Moore found redshirt freshman Matt Miller for a 17-yard touchdown pass to tie the score. Junior cornerback Branden Smith recorded Georgia’s first interception of the season with 5:32 left in the second quarter, which was soon followed by a Boise State pick by Jerrell Gavins. Boise State would continue its offensive run with a seven-yard rushing touchdown by running back Doug Martin followed by a three-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Shoemaker to give BSU a 28-7 lead over the Dogs. With a nearly a minute left in the third quarter, Georgia sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray hit junior tight end Orson Charles in a hole for a 36-yard touchdown to make it a 28-14 game. Boise State added to its lead with a one-yard rushing touchdown from D.J. Harper at the beginning of the fourth quarter. The 35-14 tally would stand until Murray would find true freshman Malcolm Mitchell for a 51-yard pass for his first career touchdown with 10:15 remaining in the fourth quarter to bring the score to 35-21 in favor of the Broncos. Junior linebacker Christian Robinson led the Bulldogs with a career-high 13 tackles followed by sophomore linebacker Jarvis Jones making his Bulldog debut with 11 tackles, including 2.5 tackles for a loss.

We were able to do it by wining one game at a time. We had to focus each week in practice and in the game. The goal was to keep improving. I knew from the start that this team had a lot of potential but we had to improve each week to get to the point we are at today.”

Dec. 3, 2011 • SEC Championship • Georgia Dome - Atlanta, Ga. No. 12 Georgia had its 10-game winning streak snapped on Saturday as No. 1 LSU topped the Bulldogs 42-10 in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game in front of 74,515 fans at the Georgia Dome. After the Bulldogs (10-3) built a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, the Tigers (13-0) scored 42 unanswered points to pull away for the victory. The Bulldogs forced LSU to go 3-and-out on its seven first half drives. Georgia outgained LSU 293-237, but turned the ball over three times -- the first two leading to touchdowns and the third being returned for a score. Quarterback Aaron Murray finished 16-of-40 (a career-high for attempts) for 162 yards and a touchdown. Tailback Ken Malcome had a team-high 37 yards on five carries, while Carlton Thomas added 27 yards on seven carries. Receiver Tavarres King had three catches for 59 yards. Linebacker Alec Ogletree led the Bulldogs with six tackles and a sack. Defensive backs Shawn Williams and Bacarri Rambo each added five tackles. Kicker Blair Walsh gave the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead when he connected on a 40-yard field goal in the first quarter. Walsh set the NCAA record with a field goal in 44 career games, breaking the record of 43 by former Bulldog Billy Bennett. Walsh is now 19-for-31 this season. Currently, he has 404 career points, second in SEC history to Bennett’s record of 409. Georgia followed with a successful onside kick, its first since 2008, when Ogletree snared the ball out of the air. Later in the first half, Murray connected with tight end Aron White on a 12-yard touchdown pass. Walsh’s PAT staked the Bulldogs to a 10-0 lead. The touchdown pass was the 33rd of the year for Murray, extending his school record. At the half, the Bulldogs held a 10-7 advantage. Georgia’s defense held the Tigers without a first down and to just 11 total yards in the first half. LSU had never trailed at halftime this season. But the Tigers scored 21 points in the third quarter and added 14 in the fourth quarter. MVP Tyrann Mathieu sparked LSU’s rally as he returned a punt 62 yards for a touchdown and set up two more scores with a fumble recovery and another long punt return. Georgia fell to 2-2 in SEC Championship Games. In school history, the Bulldogs are 1-4 when facing the top-ranked team. LSU leads the all-time series 16-12-1, including 2-1 in SEC Championship Games.

Head Coach Mark Richt Head Coach Mark Richt came to Georgia with the goal of taking the lid off a program that had not won an SEC title in 20 years. After 11 seasons between the hedges, he’s demonstrated what that means by winning two SEC Championships (2002, ‘05), four SEC Eastern Division titles and tied for another, and his 106-37 record is fourth best in the country in winning percentage among active coaches (.741). And his emphasis on graduation has come to fruition as 201 Bulldog players have earned their degrees during his tenure. Richt was named SEC Coach of the Year in both 2002 and 2005. His record against nonconference teams is 44-7 and his teams are 38-10 when playing in an opponent’s home stadium. Richt is also one of only six coaches in history to win two SEC championships (2002, 2005) in his first five years, and one of only five head coaches in SEC history to record four straight 10-win seasons (2002-05). The respect he has nationally was demonstrated in 2010 when Richt was named to the American Football Coaches Association Board of Trustees. The excitement produced by Richt’s teams on the field has been matched by many other aspects surrounding the program. Richt has generated an atmosphere of excitement and unity among the Georgia people. Georgia supporters and fans became impressed with his sincerity, openness, family values, and the casual and genuine way he carried himself. They liked his ideas on building a football program, his commitment to discipline, and the importance he placed on standards of excellence on and off the field. And they liked the way he refused to set limitations on what would be a satisfactory season. “I like to set our goals high,” he said. “I never want to put a ceiling on what we can accomplish.” Richt also had a reputation for developing quarterbacks at FSU and that has continued at UGA. Among the highlights of his first year was redshirt freshman quarterback David Greene being named SEC Freshman of the Year after a season in which Greene set the school record for passing yards (2,789) and

By the end of his career, Greene had become the SEC’s all-time leading passer (11,528 yards) and set the NCAA Division 1-A record for career victories by a starting QB with 42. D.J. Shockley followed Greene in 2005 and led the SEC in passing efficiency. Matthew Stafford came next (2006-08) and set the Georgia record for season total offense in 2008 (3,499 yards) and finished third in career passing yardage (7,731). In 2010, Aaron Murray finished second nationally in passing efficiency among freshman quarterbacks and in 2011 set the school record for most TD passes in a single season (33 breaking the old mark of 25 by Matthew Stafford). The NFL is also looking Georgia’s way on a regular basis. Fifty-seven of Richt’s players have been chosen in the NFL draft over the last ten years including eight chosen in the 2002 NFL draft--the most Georgia players ever selected in a single year.

Head Coach Mark Richt Building a Family

Richt married Katharyn in 1987. They have four children. Two came along the usual way — Jon and David. But two came in a very special way. “We were in Sunday School class one day talking about the ills of society,” said Richt. “We explored questions like ‘who’s in charge of taking care of the poor and the elderly.’ We felt like the church should do its share.” Also, Katharyn’s brother and sister-in-law had previously adopted children from the Ukraine. Months later, Katharyn was in the Ukraine, a former republic of the Soviet Union, arranging the adoption of two children, classmates in the same orphanage. She spent 31 days there while Mark spent about eight days. When they returned in July, 1999, they had Zack and Anya, in tow. “They have been a special blessing to all our family,” said Katharyn.

Sinkwich Leads Bulldogs Past TCU in 1942 Orange Bowl

Georgia All-American quarterback Frankie Sinkwich, playing with an oversized chin mask to protect a broken jaw, put on an offensive display still considered by many as the greatest in any bowl game as he led his Bulldogs to a 40-26 win over Texas Christian before 35,786 fans in the 1942 Orange Bowl game (a record crowd in ’42). Sinkwich passed for touchdowns of 61, 60 and 15 yards and raced 43 yards on a quarterback draw for another score. He completed nine of 13 passes for 243 yards and rushed for 139 yards for a total offensive gain of 382 yards. Georgia scored first as Ken Keuper rushed two yards over the goal line to give the Dogs the early 6-0 lead. TCU tied the game less than four minutes later after a Lamar Davis fumble led to a Horned Frog score from the four yard line. TCU kicked the point after and led 7-6. Georgia answered soon after the score on a 60-yard pass play from Sinkwich to Melvin Conger, giving the Bulldogs a 12-7 lead they would never relinquish. When the Dogs left the field at halftime the score stood 33-7, prompting head coach Wally Butts to call the performance the greatest offensive performance he ever saw by the Dogs. He also believed the Georgia squad, at the end of the 1941 season, was the most powerful he coached. The lead was 40-7 in the third quarter before TCU mounted a late threetouchdown effort. Bruce Alford caught two passes for scores from Emory Nix and Frink Kring scored on a 53-yard play from Kyle Gillespie for the 40-26 final. The 1942 Orange Bowl was played less than a month after the attack on Pearl Harbor and was a record-setting event. Sinkwich set five individual Orange Bowl records in the win for combined rushing and passing yards (382), touchdown passes (3), points scored (24), yards gained on touchdown pass plays (136) and yards gained on all touchdown plays (179). Georgia’s four touchdown passes set a bowl team record, as well as the Dogs’ four interceptions. The combined seven touchdowns for Georgia and TCU also set a new Orange Bowl mark.

Trippi Gets Helms Award In 1943 Rose Bowl With All-American Frankie Sinkwich hobbling on two ­sprained ankles, his young sophomore understudy — Charley Trippi — paced Georgia to a 9-0 victory over UCLA before 90,000 in the 1943 Rose Bowl at Pasadena.    Trippi rushed 27 times for a net gain of 115 yards and received the Helms Award as the game’s outstanding player.    Recently the Rose Bowl named its all-time first team and put Trippi at left halfback.    Tackle Red Boyd blocked a Bob Waterfield punt which rolled out of the end zone for a safety to give Georgia two points in the last quarter. A few minutes later center Clyde Ehrhardt inter­cepted a Waterfield pass and returned to the UCLA 25. Sinkwich finally scored from the one and Leo Costa converted.

Trippi’s Immortal Punt Return Helps Defeat Tulsa In 1945 Oil Bowl

Trippi Closes Great Career In Sugar Bowl Playing Entire 60 Minutes

Charley Trippi was at his best as Georgia defeated Tulsa, 20-6, in the Oil Bowl at Houston before 27,000.   He passed 64 yards to John Donaldson for Georgia’s second TD and returned a punt 68 yards for the final Bulldog tally in the fourth quarter — a run still considered by many as the greatest punt return of all time. He completely reversed his field and ran over two Tulsa tacklers who had him trapped near a sideline

On a chilly and rainy day in New Orleans, Georgia battled back from two deficits to knock off North Carolina, 20-10, in front of 75,000 in the 13th renewal of the Sugar Bowl. Charley Trippi led the way for the Bulldogs, playing all 60 minutes in his last game wearing the red and black. His 67-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter to Dan Edwards gave the Dogs a 13-10 lead that the club would not relinquish. The win was Georgia’s 16th consecutive victory and gave the Bulldogs a perfect season (11-0) for just the second time in school history. The scoring started when North Carolina’s Walt Pupa ran 25 yards in the second quarter for the first lead of the game. Kicker Bob Cox added the extra point for a 7-0 lead. Georgia was held scoreless into halftime, but Johnny Rauch plunged into the endzone from one yard out in the third quarter and was followed by George Jernigan’s extra point for a 7-7 tie. Cox gave the Tar Heels the lead later in the third quarter with an 18yard field goal, but the play of the day, Trippi’s 67-yarder to Edwards, answered the Tar Heel score and Georgia never looked back.

Rauch, Geri Shine in 1948 Gator Bowl

Rauch Spectacular in 1949 Orange Bowl

Georgia’s All-America quarterback Johnny Rauch had one of the best days of his career in Jacksonville, completing 12 of 17 passes for 183 yards. Captain Dan Edwards caught five passes and Joe Geri averaged 43.5 yards on seven punts. The game remained scoreless after one quarter of play, but Maryland’s Lu Gambino ran 35 yards for the first score of the game. The Terps held that 7-0 lead into halftime. Georgia took the opening drive of the second half 87 yards, capped by Rauch’s 1-yards plunge into the endzone. Maryland answered with an 80-yard drive of its own and took the lead again on Gambino’s second TD of the day. Later in the third, Georgia drove to its own 40 yard line but fumbled away possession. Three plays later the Terps were leading 20-7. The fourth quarter was all Georgia, as the Bulldogs scored once on a Geri four-yard run and again on a nine-yard pass from Rauch to John Donaldson. The extra point was no good after Geri’s TD and time ran out on a tied ball game with Georgia knocking on the door for another score.

Johnny Rauch, who directed Georgia to four straight bowl games, stood out in defeat as the Bulldogs finally lost their first post-season game, 41-28, to Texas in the 1949 Orange Bowl at Miami before a then record crowd of 60,523. Rauch completed 11 of 17 passes for 161 yards.

Georgia's Zippy Morocco, who later was to set the all-time SEC basketball scoring record, scored two touchdowns on brilliant runs, the first coming on a 65-yard punt return and the other a 23-yard rush. A&M jumped out early and never looked back, scoring 40 unanswered points through three quarters of play. Before two minutes had been played in the opening quarter, the score was 13-0 after Bob Smith took the opening kickoff 100 yards and Glenn Lippman scored from five yards out after a Bulldog fumble. Another 81-yard TD rush by Smith in the first quarter buried the Bulldogs. Morocco scored on a two-yard run in the third and a 65-yard punt return in the fourth to get the Dogs on the board. Lauren Hargrove added the last score of the day on a one-yard rush to make the final 40-20.

The 7-0 conquest of Texas Tech in the Sun Bowl at El Paso Dec. 26, 1964, before 28,500 may have been the Bulldogs’ best game of a glorious ‘‘Cinderella’’ season.    The defense held the Red Raiders’ vaunted offense, which led the Southwest Conference with almost 300 yards per game, to only 128 yards (32 rushing and 96 passing). And, the offensive troops rolled up 329 yards (245 rushing and 84 passing), their second best performance of the season.    Preston Ridlehuber had by far the most productive day of his Georgia varsity career and clearly deserved the trophy awarded him as the game’s outstanding performer. Preston ran 19 times for 87 yards, completed 4x5 passes for 77 yards, giving him a total of 164 yards.

Kent Lawrence Sets Cotton Bowl Record as Bulldogs Win Big over SMU

G

eorgia magnificently upheld the honor of the SEC with its decisive 24-9 victory over Southern Methodist University, cham pion of the Southwest Conference, Dec. 31, 1966, in Dallas’ Cotton Bowl before 75,504.    Kent Lawrence established a Bulldog bowl-game rushing record vs. the Mustangs. His 149 yards in 16 carries erased the old Georgia bowlgame mark of 139 yards in 22 rushes by Frank Sinkwich vs. TCU in the 1942 Orange Bowl.    Lawrence’s 74-yard TD rush on the game’s third play also was the longest scoring play in Bulldog bowl annals. He was voted the game’s outstanding player.    Bob Etter’s 28-yard FG put Georgia out front 10-3 at the quarter. Steve Neuhaus set up another score with an interception at the SMU 33. Kirby Moore hit Billy Payne on a 20-yard scoring pass and Etter made it 17-3.    There was only one score in the last half. The Bulldogs drove 59 yards to goal early in the fourth quarter with Ronnie Jenkins carrying nine of the 12 rushes. Jenkins scored from the one. Etter made it 24-9. Georgia SMU

Warren’s PAT made it 7-0.    Georgia retaliated with a fine 68-yard scoring drive, Lawrence starting things off with a 42-yard kickoff return. Kirby Moore hit on four passes, three to Dennis Hughes and one to Billy Payne. Ronnie Jenkins scored from the one and Jim McCullough’s PAT ­knotted the count at 7-7 midway the second quarter.    State went ahead early in the fourth quarter, driving 73 yards with Barchuk scoring from the one. Warren’s PAT was good.    Georgia again fought back and mounted a great 98-yard drive that ended with Lawrence failing to score by inches after taking a pitchout from Moore at the N.C.

A

huge Sugar Bowl crowd of 82,113 saw Arkansas, champion of the Southwest Conference, upset Georgia, champion of the Southeastern Conference, 16-2, on Jan. 1, 1969.  The Bulldogs had the ball six times in the first quarter but lost possession three times on fumbles and once on a pass interception. But the Georgia defense played well and the quarter ended scoreless. The Razorbacks moved 65 yards for a TD early in the second quarter, scoring on a 27-yard pass, MontgomeryDicus. White’s PAT made it 7-0.    Midway the second quarter David McKnight tossed Burnett for a sixyard loss and a safety to make it 7-2, but a Bulldog fumble a few plays later gave Arkansas position for a 34-yard field goal by White which made it 10-2 at halftime.  Georgia ‘‘blew’’ a good chance early in the third quarter after recovering an Arkansas fumble on the kickoff. Brad Johnson fum­bled on the goal line on third down, and the ball went out of the end zone.  A fumble and pass interception in the fourth quarter put Arkansas in position for two more field goals by White (24 and 31 yards)­.

Nebraska Too Much for Dogs in 1969 Sun Bowl

N

ebraska turned out to be every bit as good as advertised. ‘‘They were the best team we played all season,’’ said Captain Steve Greer following the Cornhuskers’ 45-6 victory before a sun-baked Sun Bowl crowd of 31,176 in El Paso Dec. 20.    The Cornhuskers took advantage of a strong wind to kick four field goals in the exceptionally-long first quarter (scoreboard clock broke and officials admitted afterwards that the first quarter was too long).    Trailing 18-0 after the first quarter, Georgia fought back to hold the big and fast Big Eight co-champions scoreless in the second quarter. But the Nebraskans took advantage of six pass interceptions and two fumble recoveries to run up the score, 14 points in the third quarter and 13 in the fourth.    Paul Gilbert directed Georgia’s lone TD in the fourth quarter. He completed passes of 16 yards to Charley Whittemore, 11 to Dennis Hughes, then scored himself from the six. Jim McCullough’s PAT kick was wide. Georgia Nebraska

Poulos Superb in 1971 Gator Bowl

eorgia played perhaps its finest defensive game of the season to beat North Carolina 7-3 in the Gator Bowl, Dec. 31, 1971, before 71,208.    The Bulldogs held the Tar Heels to only 181 yards total offense (115 rushing and 66 passing).    Dennis Watson was the defensive hero, making tackles time and time again. He made three straight tackles during one stretch.    Offensively, the Bulldogs gained a lot of ground (322 yards) but were sporadic, particularly in the first half. But, following the Tar Heels’ lone scoring drive of the game which resulted in a 35-yard FG by Craven, the Bulldogs finally mounted a beautiful 80-yard march that s­ ettled the issue.    The scintillating sophomores, Jimmy Poulos and Andy Johnson, ran the ball from Georgia’s 20 to the G 43. Then Johnson hit split end Lynn Hunnicutt on a great 32-yard play to the NC 25. On the next snap, Poulos broke around left end down the sidelines to score, side-stepping the safety. Braswell made it 7-3.    The nation’s TV audience once again was thrilled by the exploits of Poulos, the Greek Streak, who set a Georgia bowl rushing record in the Gator Bowl. He netted 161 yards on 20 carries to better the old Bulldog bowl mark of 149 yards on 16 rushes by Kent Lawrence against SMU in the 1966 Cotton Bowl. Georgia 0 0 7 0 — 7 N.

Tough Terps Trimmed in 1973 Peach Bowl

ats off to the Bulldogs for their thrilling 17-16 triumph over the Terrapins in the 1973 Peach Bowl Dec. 28 before 38,017 in Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. Early in the second quarter, thanks to runs by Horace King and Andy Johnson, Georgia reached the Maryland 17 but was stopped. Johnson hit Jimmy Poulos on a screen and the Greek Streak went 62 yards for a score in one of the finest runs ever made by a Georgia back. Two plays later Maryland’s Carter and White hooked up on a 68-yard haymaker and Mick-Mayer’s PAT tied it 7-7. Later Mike-Mayer put Maryland out front 10-7 on a 36-yard FG. Then the Bulldogs roared back with one of their best drives of the season. Captain Bobby Burns ripped up the middle for 21. Johnson hit King for 30, then ran 12 after faking a pass to the M 9. With the clock running out and the Bulldogs had to settle for a 26-yard FG by Leavitt to make it 10-10 at halftime.     Tremendous defensive play set up Georgia’s go-ahead TD late in the third quarter. Following Golden’s 43-yard punt to Smith, tackled in his tracks at the M 11 by Glynn Harrison, Sylvester Boler smashed through and hit QB Kinard as he was pitching out to Jennings. The hit caused a fumble that was recovered by Dick Conn at the Maryland 8 yard line. On third, down Johnson scored from the one and Leavitt made it 17-10. A nine-yard punt and fumble by Richard Appleby, on an end-round, presented Maryland with two FG opportunities in the fourth quarter. Both cashed in on by Mick-Mayer (25 and 28 yds.) to close the gap to 17-16. Georgia Maryland

Dogs Fall To Miami 21-10 in 1974 Tangerine Bowl

M

iami of Ohio won its 23rd in a row with a 21-10 vicotry over Georgia in the Tangerine Bowl before 20,246 at Orlando, on Dec. 21, 1974.    It might have been a close game had not the Bulldogs given Miami two easy scoring chances with fumbles at their own 25 (first play from scrimmage) and 22. The Redskins cashed both oppor­tunities, and in between, marched 68 yards to goal, QB Smith passing seven yards to E. Taylor for the TD.    After trailing 7-0, Georgia did make a good drive, first down at the M 9, the big gainer being a 43-yard pass, Robinson to Appleby. But the vaunted Miami defense held and Allan Leavitt kicked at 21-yard FG.    Georgia came back strong in the second half and won it, 7-0. The defense played considerably better.    Midway, the third quarter Butch Box, covering a Bucky Dilts punt, recovered a fumble at the Miami 41. Glynn Harrison immediately broke loose for 28 yards to the M 13. Five plays later Ray Goff plunged over from the one and Leavitt made it 10-21.    Georgia outgained Miami in total offense, 274 to 242. Georgia had only 74 yards rushing but 200 passing. Miami had 228 rushing, 14 passing. Georgia 3 Miami, Ohio 14

T

he big clock in the Cotton Bowl showed 1:49 left in the first half with Georgia leading Arkansas, 10-0. Not a soul there or any one of the millions watching CBS-TV had any idea then that the Bulldogs, who had played almost a perfect game for nearly a half, would suffer one tough blow after another the rest of the game and finally succumb, 31-10 on Jan. 1, 1976.    Georgia amazed the crowd of 74,500 by taking the opening kickoff and ramming the ball all the way to the A4. But the Razorbacks held and Georgia had to settle for a 35-yard FG by Allan Leavitt.    In the second quarter Matt Robinson connected with Gene Washington on a nifty 21-yard scoring play and Georgia led 10-0.    But two Georgia fumbles in the last two minutes of the first half resulted in an Arkansas FG (Little, 39 yards) and TD (Forte, 1-yd. rush).    It was a scoreless third quarter but the Hogs tallied three times in the final period. “Glidin’ ” Glynn Harrison led the Georgia team to the ’76 Cotton Bowl.

#1 Pittsburgh Tops Dogs in ’77 Sugar Bowl

rmed with a number four national ranking and the distinction of be-ing first team to represent the con­ference in the SEC’s ‘‘marriage’’ with the Sugar Bowl, Georgia’s dreams of a national title were convincingly shattered by top-ranked Pittsburgh, 27-3, in the Sugar Bowl shootout for the national championship.    With a Sugar Bowl record crowd for the Superdome of 76, 117 fans looking on, Pittsburgh made believers of the whole nation in justifying their top national billing. Junior quarterback Matt Cavanaugh and heralded Heisman Trophy winner Tony Dorsett supplied most of the offensive fireworks for the Panthers in building a 21-0 halftime lead. Cavanaugh directed his team 80 yards in the first quarter for Pitt’s initial score, covering the last six yards himself on a keeper. In the second quarter, the Pittsburgh junior unveiled a brilliant passing game to account for another Pittsburgh score by hitting FLK Matt Jones for a 59-yard scoring strike. Dorsett added the Panthers’ third TD of the day on an 11-yard burst to make the halftime tally 21-0.    The Bulldog offense, which had been stymied all day by the swarming Pittsburgh defense, finally was able to put something on the scoreboard in the third quarter. On Pitt's first possession of the sec­ond half, fullback Elliott Walker was separated from the ball on the Panthers’ own 26-yard line, where defensive end Lawrence Craft fell on it for the Bulldogs. But several plays later, Georgia found themselves faced with fourth and goal on the seven and had to settle for Allan Leavitt’s 25-yard field goal for their only score of the day.    Pitt’s Carson Long added field goals of 42 and 31 yards as the Panthers claimed the 1976 national championship.

Stanford Rallies For Win in Bluebonnet Bowl

eorgia’s Wonderdogs out gained Stanford 525 yards to 317, but lost the ball game 25-22 before 34,084 fans in the Bluebonnet Bowl in Houston on December 31, 1978. Fumbles and penalties, missed PAT’s and FG’s and precision passing by All-American QB Steve Dils, enables the Cardinal to overcome a 22-0 deficit in the second half. The Bulldogs played their best game of the season in running up an early advantage to the 22-0. They scored on their second possession in the first quarter, Rex Robinson kicking a 31-yd FG. On their third possession, Georgia’s Buck Belue passed to flanker Carmon Prince 22 yards for a TD, but Robinson missed on the PAT to make Georgia a 9-0 leader. As the half closed, Jeff Pyburn directed an 80-yard drive in seven plays as he spotted Prince for an eight-yard strike. Robinson was wide again on the PAT and Georgia led 15-0. Georgia drove 75 yards to goal after the second half kick-off and took only six plays as Pyburn dove in from the one, making the score 22-0. Two Bulldog fumbles accounted fro Stanford’s first pair of touchdowns and their third tally came on a 14-yard pass from Dils to Ken Margerum. The two-point conversion was good, knotting the score at 22. The Cardinal recovered another Georgia fumble to set up their go-ahead field goal of 24 yards. Georgia came back strong, driving to the Stanford 14 but Robinson missed on a 31-yard attempt. Georgia Stanford

Georgia Whips Irish for ’81 Sugar Bowl Win and the National Championship

D

etermined to silence the critics who had claimed Georgia had been lucky in streaking to a perfect 11-0 regular season slate, the Bulldogs journeyed to New Orleans, number one ranking in hand, and defeated Notre Dame, 17-10, in the 1981 Sugar Bowl to claim the national championship.    Played before a record Crescent City Sugar Bowl crowd of 77,895 in the Louisiana Superdome, the game was one where Georgia capitalized on early Irish mistakes to take a 17-3 lead at halftime.    Notre Dame took the ball on the first possession of the contest from its own 20 all the way to the G32 where kicker Harry Oliver booted a 50-yard field goal to give the Irish a 3-0 lead with 10:41 to go in the opening quarter. Oliver tried another field goal moments later from the 48, but this time Bulldog freshman rover Terry Hoage slipped through the line to step in front and block the attempt, giving Georgia the ball at the ND49. Nine plays netted 20 yards and placekicker Rex Robinson was called on for a 46-yard field goal. The All-American was successful to tie the game at three apiece with less than two minutes remaining in the first period. On the ensuing kickoff, there was a mixup between the Notre Dame deep men and Bulldog senior Bob Kelly came up with a loose football at the Irish one-yard line. Freshman marvel Herschel Walker, who would go on to gain 150 yards (the first 100-yard per­formance against the Notre Dame defense all season) and win the Miller-Digby MVP Trophy, dove on the second play for the touchdown. Robinson coverted the PAT and Bulldogs were up, 10-3, still in the first quarter. Erk Russell’s defense, one which led the country in take-aways during the season, recovered another Notre Dame fumble early in the s­ econd period as Irish fullback John Sweeney was separated from the ball at the ND22 and Bulldog senior roverback Chris Welton pounced on it. Tailback Walker broke an off tackle play for 12 yards to the ND10. Quarterback Buck Belue swept left for seven more to the Irish three-yard line, setting up a second and goal situation. Belue gave it to Walker and the 6-2, 220-pounder stormed into the endzone for his second touchdown of the game. Robinson added the PAT and Georgia enjoyed a 17-3 lead.   Down 14 points, Notre Dame drove the second time it had the ball in the second half from its own 40-yard line to the G13. On a third down play there, Irish QB Blair Kiel dropped back, threw into the endzone to flanker Pete Holohan, only to watch Georgia’s All-American cornerback Scott Woerner step in at the last minute to bat the pass away. Notre Dame's Oliver came in to kick a 30-yarder but the ball sailed wide right. The Irish finally got a touchdown after Georgia punted on the next possession. The passing of Kiel and running of tailback Phil Carter took Notre Dame 57 yards in 11 plays as the drive was climaxed by a one-yard plunge by Carter for the touchdown. Oliver booted the PAT and the Georgia lead was now 17-10 with :54 seconds of the third quarter showing on the Superdome scoreboard clock. After Georgia was unable to move the ball, senior Mark Malkiewicz was called in to punt. The boot carried to the Irish 46 and Notre Dame, with momentum mounting, took over. Seven plays later, the Fighting Irish were at the G21 and fourth down staring them in the face. Oliver’s 38-yard field goal attempt went wide to the left this time and the Bulldogs clung

to their seven-point lead. After two unsuccessful possessions by each team, Notre Dame got the ball one last time with 5:10 to go in the ballgame at the ND43. Carter ran around end for seven yards to midfield. On second down, 6-1, 265-pound defensive guard Eddie Weaver caught Kiel behind the line for a four-yard loss, setting up a third and seven play. A Kiel-to-Nick Vehr pass got six yards back, making it fourth down, one yard to go. A running play looked to be forthcoming, but Kiel surprised everyone when he faded back, looking for Dean Masztak, the big tight end, on the side line. One Bulldog, apparently not surprised by the call, was cornerback Woerner, who stepped up in front of Masztak for the interception (his second of the game) at the G34. Only 2:56 remained. Runs by Belue and Walker gave the Bulldogs a first down at the G47. Two plays after that, Georgia recorded the biggest first down of the game when Belue hit his very first completion of the day on a seven-yard pass to senior flanker Amp Arnold. Walker got the Bulldogs another first down at the ND38, where Georgia ran off three plays and watched the 47th annual Sugar Bowl clock run off, along with a sea of red which had engulfed the playing field for the national championship celebration.

Pitt Edges Bulldog 24-20 In 1982 Sugar Bowl

ittsburgh QB Dan Marino hit TE John Brown on a fourth-down 33-yard TD pass with just :35 seconds left to give the Panthers a come-from-behind 24-20 win over Georgia in the 1982 Sugar Bowl, dashing the Bulldogs’ hopes for a second consecutive national championship. Perhaps the most exciting of the holiday games of '82, the Pitt-Georgia matchup had six lead changes for the 77,224 who were in attendance at the Superdome.     Early in the fourth quarter it was Pittsburgh which capitalized on a Dog fumble at the G23. Four plays later, QB Marino found John Brown open for a six-yard TD play. The conversion put the Panthers, 17-13 with 11:40 to play in the game.    But the Bulldogs, entering the game ranked No. 2 in the country, weren’t quite through yet. Taking over on the G20, Georgia drove the distance in 10 plays, climaxing the drive with a Buck Belue-to-Clarence Kay TD pass from six yards out. Kevin Butler’s PAT put the lead in Georgia’s favor, 20-17, with 8:31 remaining.    Each team failed on a possession and, with 3:46 left, the Panthers got the ball on the P20. Eleven plays later, they were at the G33, fourth down and five. Seconds later, TE Brown was in the endzone on the receiving end of Marino’s game-winner. Pittsburgh GEORGIA

Penn State Clips Dogs 27-23 In 1983 Sugar Bowl

A

ter staking powerful Penn State to a 20-3 second quarter lead, the Georgia Bulldogs staged a great comeback but came up short, 2723, to the Nittany Lions before 78,124 in the '83 Sugar Bowl Classic. The final result foiled Georgia’s chances for another national championship and a perfect 12-0 season.     Trailing 20-3 with only :39 remaining in the first half, Georgia took over on its 34-yard line. Lastinger completed four of five pass attempts, the final comple­tion coming on a 10-yard scoring play to Herman Archie. Butler’s PAT cut the deficit to 20-10 as the teams went into the lockerroom at intermission.    The Dogs took the second half kickoff and drove 69 yards in 11 plays as TB Herschel Walker, who netted 103 yards on the day, ran in from a yard out. Penn State’s lead now was only 20-17. The Nittany Lions took possession late in the third quarter at their 19. Six plays advanced the football to the G47. From there, Blackledge found his receiver Garrity, who made a diving catch in the endzone for a TD. Gancitano’s PAT increased the PSU lead to 27-17.    Georgia didn’t roll over, however. With 5:38 left to play, the Dogs took the ball at the P43 after a fumbled punt. Six plays later, Lastinger found TE Clarence Kay for a nine-yard TD pass. Only 3:54 remained. The two-point try failed and Georgia trailed 27-23.    Georgia could not prevent the Nittany Lions from getting two first downs and used up its allotted timeouts as Penn State ran out the clock. The game ended with the ball rolling into the Georgia endzone after a 62-yard punt from Ralph Giacomarro. Penn State GEORGIA

Georgia Upsets Texas 10-9 In 1984 Cotton Bowl

eorgia senior QB John Lastinger ran 17 yards for a go-aheadTD with just 3:22 left on the clock to lift the Bulldogs to a 10-9 Cotton Bowl Classic triumph over No. 2 Texas before 67,891 in Dallas on Jan. 2, 1984.    The winning TD had been set up when Bulldog sopho­more Gary Moss recovered a Craig Curry fumbled punt at the Longhorn 23-yard line. Lastinger called his own number on the third play from scrimmage and darted outside right where he streaked 17 yards for the TD. With the score knotted at 9-9, junior All-America placekicker Kevin Butler was called upon to convert the point after which would vault the Dogs into the lead. Butler did just that to put Georgia up 10-9.    Texas had one more possession but the Bulldog de­fense rose up recording two sacks (Kenny Sims and Ed Moore) to back the Longhorns up from their 28-yard line all the way to their seven. Georgia took control and ran off the final 2:19 on the clock after converting a fourth down play at the Texas 36.    As expected going into the Cotton Bowl, defense was the key for both teams as there were just 13 first downs and three points each achieved in the first half. Texas grabbed an early 3-0 lead with 10:32 to go in the first quarter when freshman Jeff Ward booted a 22-yard FG. The Bulldogs, after Moss returned a punt 29 yards to the Longhorn 43 late in the quarter, used four plays to move to the Texas 26 where Butler came in and kicked a 43-yarder.    Ward added his second three-pointer on the day with 7:10 to play in the third quarter as he connected on a 40-yard field goal. After a Georgia fumble at the G37, the Longhorns moved 26 yards in eight plays to the G11 where Ward came on and extended the Texas advantage to 9-3 with 3:50 to play in the third quarter.     Georgia 3 0 0 7 — 10 Texas 3 0 6 0 — 9 UT—Ward 22-yard field goal 10:32-1st Q GA—Butler 43-yard field goal 2:12-1st Q UT—Ward 40-yard field goal 7:10-3rd Q UT—Ward 27-yard field goal 3:50-3rd Q GA—Lastinger 17-yard run (Butler kick) 3:22-4th Q

FSU Rallies To Tie Bulldogs In 1984 Citrus Bowl

G

eorgia senior senior placekicker Kevin Butler’s attempt of a 70-yard field goal fell just a foot short as time expired in the '84 Florida Citrus Bowl, enabling favored Florida State to hold off the upstart Bulldogs and earn a 17-17 tie before 51,821 in Orlando on Dec. 22, 1984. The Bulldogs, who had hoped to use the Citrus Bowl as the start of their 1985 season, stormed out to a 14-0 halftime lead. Florida State battled back to tie the score through the efforts of a talented offense and an aggressive punt rush with under four minutes remaining. After averaging 35.3 points a game, the Seminoles were held to just 10 points through three quarters until noseguard Lenny Chavers blocked a Chip Andrews punt which was picked up by teammate Joe Wessel for a Seminole touchdown. Darrin Holloman’s sweep around the left side gave FSU a two-point conversion and knotted the game at 17 late in the fourth quarter. The Dogs tried to repeat the miracle they had staged earlier in the season against rival Clemson in which they drove up field in the closing seconds enabling All-American Kevin Butler to kick a conference record 60-yard FG and secure a Georgia victory. FSU’s defense proved to be a bit stiffer than that of Clemson, and after three incomplete James Jackson passes, Georgia coach Vince Dooley called on Butler once again. Despite a frantic Seminole rush, Butler’s kick sailed high and long but fell just short of the crossbar and the game ended deadlocked at 17.    Although disappointed with a tie, Georgia walked off the field encouraged by the play of their underclassmen. Freshman QB James Jackson saw his first stretch of extensive playing time and responded by earning the game’s Most Valuable Player trophy. The game’s most valuable offensive player was another Georgia freshman, TB Lars Tate, who scored both of Georgia’s TD's. Senior CB Kevin Harris was awarded Defensive Player of the Game, giving the red and black a clean sweep of the awards ceremony. Georgia Florida State

Dogs, Wildcats Tie 13-13 In 1985 Sun Bowl Game

Sun Bowl crowd of 52,203 saw the Georgia Bulldogs rally for 10 fourth quarter points to pull even with the Arizona Wildcats, 13-13, then watched as both teams miss potential game-winning field goals in the final two minutes to preserve the tie.    Georgia struck first, marching 72 yards in 13 plays to set up a 37-yard FG by Steve Crumley. Crumley, who had pulled a muscle in his kicking leg before the final game of the regular season, reinjured himself on the kick, however, and was unable to continue.    Arizona responded on the following possession to tie the game, driving to the G1 before an illegal procedure penalty on fourth down forced the Cats to call upon All-American Max Zendejas to tie the score at three from 21 yards.Zendejas added a 52-yarder, and the the Wildcats made it 12-3 when Martin Rudolph picked off QB James Jackson's pass and returned it 35 yards for a TD. Georgia backup kicker Davis Jacobs was true on a 44-yard field to close the gap to 13-6.    With 12:35 to play senior DB Tony Flack recovered RB James Debow’s fumble at the A23 to set up what would be the game’s last score behind Tate on the ground. With 1:14 left, Jacobs missed a 44-yard field goal.    Georgia held Arizona until the Wildcats gambled on fourth-and-two from their own 36, and David Adams rambled for 25 yards on a draw play with DL Henry Williams executing a game-saving tackle at the G39. The Wildcats drove to the 22, called time out, and Zendejas’ 39-yard attempt went wide and Georgia averted a last-second defeat. Georgia Arizona

Kasay’s Kick at 0:00 Defeats Arkansas 20-17 In 1987 Liberty Bowl

Dogs Use New Tricks To Win 1989 Gator Bowl

reshman placekicker John Kasay booted a 39-yard field goal with no time left on the clock to give Georgia a 20-17 come-from-behind victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks before 53,249 fans at Liberty Bowl Stadium in Memphis, Tenn. on Dec. 29, 1987. The victory provided Georgia with its first nine-win season since 1983 and the first victory ever over Arkansas after two previous attempts.    Bulldog QB James Jackson was the Georgia most valuable offensive player after rushing for 72 yards and completing 15 of 25 passes for 148 yards. Bulldog LB John Brantley was the Georgia most valuable defensive player.    Kasay’s game-winning kick was set up when Georgia cornerback Carver Russaw intercepted an Arkansas pass and ran it back to the Razorback 43-yard line with 46 seconds to play. Arkansas had missed a 35-yard field goal with 1:42 left which would have given them the lead. The Bulldogs ran three plays to set up Kasay’s, kick the big one being a Jackson-to -Sadowski pass for 16 yards to put the Dogs in field goal range.    Georgia had trailed at halftime, 10-7, and Arkansas took the second half kickoff and drove for a touchdown to take a 17-7 lead with 11:35 left in the third period. But the fourth quarter belonged to Georgia.    Kasay kicked a 24-yard FG with 14:57 left to cut the lead to 17-10, and James Jackson scored on a five-yd to tie the score at 17. Georgia Arkansas

iscarding the ‘‘run, run and run some more’’ philosophy that had long since become their trademark, Vince Dooley’s Bulldogs took to the air in the 44th Mazda Gator Bowl en route to a 34-27 victory over the Michigan State in front of 76,236 fans in Jacksonville, Fla., on Jan. 1, 1989.     Georgia not only secured its second straight nine-win season but handed Dooley the 201st, and final, win of his illustrious 25-year coaching career. QB Wayne Johnson, who was named Georgia’s MVP for the game, had a career-high 227 yards and three touchdowns. Two of Johnson’s three TD strikes went to tailback Rodney Hampton, who also carried the ball 10 times for 109 yards and a TD.    Georgia took a 7-0 lead on a six-yard Johnson-to-Hampton touchdown pass. By halftime, the Dogs led 17-7.   The Bulldogs scored again in the third when Johnson capped a 64-yard drive with an 18-yard pass to tight end Kirk Warner.   MSU closed the gap to 27-20 with 14:24 to play, but the Dogs countered on their next possession when Hampton raced 32 yards for his third touchdown. The Spartans scored once more, but Georgia, which finished the season ranked 15th, hung on for a 34-27 win. Georgia 7 10 10 7 — Michigan State 0 7 6 14 —

ith :25 left in the game, Syracuse PK John Biskup booted a 26-yard field goal to lift the Orangemen over the Bulldogs, 19-18, in Atlanta at the 22nd Peach Bowl on Dec. 30, 1989.    Despite putting together an impressive opening drive and coming up with several big plays, the Dogs couldn’t sustain a bal­anced offensive attack throughout the game. Georgia's leading rusher Rodney Hampton was held to 32 yards on the ground, while Syracuse TB Michael Owens ran for 112 yards on 14 carries. The Georgia passing attack was limited to 88 yards, the first time all season the Dogs were held under 100 yards in the air. Georgia opened the game with a 66-yard drive, capped off by a 5-yard TD pass from QB Greg Talley to tight end Kirk Warner. Syracuse answered with an 80-yard drive of its own, with Owens scoring from one yard out.    In the second quarter, Syracuse suffered from three miscues, but managed to stay close. The first came when Georgia linebacker Mo Lewis set a new Peach Bowl record with a 77-yard interception return to the Syracuse five. The Bulldogs were unable to get into the end zone, however, and had to settle for a John Kasay field goal. In the second half, the Orangemen gave up a safety, and Georgia added a TD for an 18-10 edge going to the fourth.    Syracuse rallied, first with a 94-yards drive to close to 18--16. Then, Biskup’s field goal lifted the Orange over Georgia in the closest Peach Bowl since 1973.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 14-0 lead behind two scoring strikes thrown from Eric Zeier to Arthur Marshall and Andre Hastings stretching their lead to 17-0 on a 39-yard FG by freshman Kanon Parkman. The Razorbacks battled back and got on the scoreboard with a 7-yard run by the Hogs’ leading rusher, E.D. Jackson. The run capped off an eight-play 37-yard drive by the Razorbacks. The second half continued to be a showcase for the play of Hastings and Zeier and the ball-hawking Georgia defense led by junior linebacker Torrey Evans. Georgia’s defense forced Arkansas quarterback Jason Allen into throwing five interceptions. Evans came off the bench for the injured John Allen and played brilliantly, recording four tackles, an interception and fumble recovery to earn defensive MVP honors. The game’s offensive MVP, Hastings caught four passes for 94 yards and outran all pursuers on a third quarter 53-yard reverse that put the Bulldogs out front 24-7.

Dogs Beat Ohio State in 1993 Florida Citrus Bowl

eorgia secured its best finish in a decade, including a top-10 final ranking and the first 10-win season since 1983, with a 21-14 victory over Ohio State. A New Year’s Day crowd of 65,861 attended the 47th annual Florida Citrus Bowl. Oensively, Georgia found ball control to its liking in the first quarter as it opened the game with its longest touchdown drive of the season. The Bulldogs drove 80 yards in 14 plays, grinding up 6:18 on the game clock, to take a 7-0 lead. The Bulldogs then opened it up in the second quarter, calling for passes on five of their first eight plays. An Eric Zeier fumble just inside OSU territory proved costly as the Buckeyes drove 54 yards to paydirt in 11 plays for a 7-7 halftime tie. Following the break, Andre Hastings ignited the Dogs’ offense on the opening kickoff of the second half with a spectacular 49-yard return. Then from the OSU 45, Garrison Hearst gained all 45 yards on four carries en route to a 14-7 Bulldog advantage. But following a short punt by Georgia which the Buckeyes returned to the UGA 33, Ohio State seized the opportunity and tied the game again, 14-14, on a five-yard run by Robert Smith. Slowly, the Buckeyes had taken control of the game’s momentum and after a 45-yard completion to Smith to the UGA 15, it appeared Ohio State would take its first lead of the game. But quarterback Kirk Herbstreit fumbled, and the Bulldogs drove 80 yards in 11 plays to take the victory. A final Buckeye drive ended with a desperation pass intercepted in the endzone, and Georgia had earned its best season in a decade.

Virginia Rallies For 34-27 Win In 1995 Peach Bowl

A

t the Peach Bowl, two of the nation’s most fatestruck teams took to Atlanta’s Georgia Dome in search of season-ending consola tion. Although the Bulldogs entered the contest as underdogs, Georgia again battled back from adversity, this time a 14-0 deficit with 4:09 left in the first quarter, only to lose in the closing minute. Virginia’s Demetrius Allen proved the difference, returning a Kanon Parkman kickoff for an 83-yard TD with :57 remaining. Sophomore QB Hines Ward engineered the Georgia comeback, lighting up the Cavalier secondary for 413 yards on 31 of 59 passing. Figure in another 56 yards rushing, and Ward had set new Georgia bowl records for pass attempts, completions, yards passing and total offense. However, a pair of first-quarter interceptions and a Dax Langley blocked punt led to an easy 14 points for Virginia and considerable red and black frustration. Once again, Georgia’s defense kept the team's hope alive. Besides limiting Virginia to 256 yards total offense, the UGA "D" even gave the 70,824 audience a temporary charge when defensive tackle Jason Ferguson returned UVA's Walt Derey fumble 10 yards for a TD—Georgia's first tie of the game (27-27) with only 1:09 left.

Edwards set a Georgia bowl mark and tied an Outback recordwith three rushing touchdowns. Senior Hines Ward set an Outback Bowl record for receptions and yardage with 12 catches for 122 yards. Georgia sported a new look for the Outback Bowl, donning black pants instead of the traditional “silver britches” to go along with the Bulldogs’ white jerseys and red helmets. “The players came to me a while back and requested we do something special for the bowl game,” Georgia head coach Jim Donnan said. “The idea the players liked best was wearing black pants. After discussing it with (athletic director) Coach Dooley we decided to go along with the players’ suggestion for this game.” Mike Bobo, MVP of the 1998 Outback Bowl, set two Outback Bowl records; best completion percentage (92.8) and for consecutive completions with 19.

Georgia Rallies Past No. 12 Virginia 35-33 In 1998 Peach Bowl

o. 19 Georgia rallied from an early second quarter deficit of 21-0 to win its second consecutive bowl game, a thrilling 35-33 win over the 12th-ranked Cavaliers. A Peach Bowl record crowd of 72,876 in Atlanta on Dec. 31, 1998 was in attendance for the memorable comeback.Virginia capitalized on three second quarter interceptions by Georgia freshman Quincy Carter, turning each of them into a touchdown to build a 21-0 lead. Georgia got on the scoreboard when Carter connected with senior Tony Small on an 11-yard score with 1:15 left in the second quarter. The Bulldogs didn’t let up after halftime, scoring on their first two possessions thanks to a 14-yard TD from Carter to junior Champ Bailey and a 15-yard run by senior Olandis Gary to tie the game with 5:50 left in the third. Virginia answered with a big play as Aaron Brooks connected with Terrence Wilkins for a 67-yard TD pass but the PAT failed. Georgia got its first lead of the night when Gary capped a 67 yard drive with a 2-yard run on the Dogs’ first possession of the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs then built an 8-point lead when Carter called his own number on a quarterback sneak from the one-yard-line with 7:01 remaining. Virginia kept the pressure on Georgia late in the game and when Brooks scrambled for a 30-yard TD with 1:34 left, the Cavs were within two points. The conversion attempt, however was broken up by junior Jeff Harris as Georgia held onto the lead. The game was far from over as Virginia recovered the on-side kick. The Cavs moved to the Georgia 27 yard line before the Bulldog defense forced consecutive lost yardage plays. After an incomplete pass, Braverman was called upon for a 48-yard FG attempt, but his kick sailed wide right with 0:19 remaining.

Worth Noting...

• The Bulldogs’ comeback was the largest in Georgia bowl history as they rallied back from 21 points. The previous high was a 10-point deficit in th 1987 Liberty Bowl when Georgia came back from 17-7 to win 20-17 over Arkansas. • Olandis Gary, senior RB, was Georgia’s offensive bowl MVP. He rushed for 110 yards on 19 carries and two TDs. Champ Bailey, who was the Bulldogs’s defensive MVP saw action on 113 plays (42 offense, 60 defense and 11 special teams). • Georgia’s win over No. 12 Virginia was the highest ranked team Georgia has beaten in a bowl game since upsetting No. 2 Texas in the 1984 Cotton Bowl. That year, No. 7 Georgia beat Texas 10-9. • Senior TE Larry Brown started 45 of a possible 47 games in his career including a team-high 31 straight.

“I thought that was a tremendous win for Georgia and a tough loss for Virginia, especially after the way they dominated us in the second quarter. I’m glad we got a win in the fourth quarter. We had three games that came down to the last play this year and they were all tough, hard-fought games. It’s real tough on the team that loses. I thought we showed a lot by coming back and doing what we had to do. Without question, Champ Bailey is one of the best players ever in college football. What a tremendous representative of Georgia he has been.

Jim Donnan Said...

“That's two years in a row where we have been down like the Titanic. At halftime, we talked about how we had not played like we needed to. I am not a yeller or a screamer, but I told the team that we needed to show in the second half that we had some semblance of what we were doing. We played with a lot of intensity in the second half and I was glad to see us play with poise in overtime."

Eagles Edge Dogs In 2001 Music City Bowl

unning back William Green scored a 7-yard touchdown with 4:43 remaining to lift Boston College to a 20-16 win over Georgia at the Music City Bowl. Green rushed for 149 yards and the one touchdown to garner Most Valuable Player honors. The Bulldogs ended the 2001 season with an 8-4 record. Boston College extended the Big East’s mark in the Music City Bowl to 4-0 against the SEC. Running back Verron Haynes capped his Georgia career with 132 yards on 27 carries, including a 1-yard scoring run in the third quarter. That touchdown gave the Bulldogs a 16-10 lead. Haynes had four straight games with 100 yards or more to end the season, the first Bulldog to accomplish that feat since Garrison Hearst in 1992. Georgia quarterback David Greene completed 22-of-38 passes for 288 yards. Greene hooked up with Fred Gibson on Georgia’s second play from scrimmage for a 15-yard touchdown pass. Turnovers were costly as Greene was intercepted twice and Haynes and running back Musa Smith each lost fumbles. Boston College didn’t have any turnovers in the game. The Bulldogs began the game with some trickery as Gibson (pictured right) took the opening kickoff and gave a reverse handoff to Decory Bryant, who raced 86 yards (a Georgia bowl record) to the Boston College 18. On Georgia’s second play, Greene found Gibson on a swing pass and the freshman receiver fought his way into the end zone from 15 yards out. Kicker Billy Bennett’s PAT gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead just 55 seconds into the contest. The Eagles answered with a 25-yard field goal by Sandro Sciortino and the first quarter ended with the Bulldogs leading 7-3. Boston College grabbed the lead in the second quarter when quarterback Brian St. Pierre threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to receiver Dedrick Dewalt. The play was set up by Green’s 75-yard run, the longest play allowed by the Bulldogs this season. Sciortino then converted from 26 yards out to give the Eagles a 13-7 lead. The Bulldogs answered with Bennett’s 24-yard field goal as Georgia trailed 13-10 at the break. Haynes’ third-quarter touchdown gave the Bulldogs their final lead of the contest. The Bulldogs’ all-time bowl record is now 19-15-3. Georgia was making its first appearance in the Music City Bowl.

Worth Noting...

• With the loss, Georgia ended a streak of four straight bowl game victories, the longest in school history. • Georgia’s 177 total kickoff return yards was the most in a bowl by the Bullodgs. Decory Bryant’s 86-yard kickoff return in the first quarter was the longest in Georgia’s bowl history, besting Arthur Marshall’s 51-yard return in the 1991 Independence Bowl.

Georgia Gets Record 13th Victory In 2003 Nokia Sugar Bowl

eorgia bowl MVP Musa Smith rushed for 145 yards and Billy Bennett kicked four field goals as Georgia defeated Florida State 26-13 before 74,269 fans in the Nokia Sugar Bowl. Georgia completed the season at 13-1, the most wins in school history. The Bulldogs’ defense forced three turnovers by the Seminoles, including cornerback Bruce Thornton’s 71-yard interception return for a touchdown. Nose tackle Ken Veal’s fumble recovery led to one of Bennett’s four field goals. Smith was the offensive workhorse for Georgia as he carried the ball 23 times for the 145 yards. Smith ended the season with 1,324 yards, fifth on the school's all-time list. Bennett staked the Bulldogs to a 3-0 lead in the first quarter . The Seminoles took their only lead of the game in the second quarter as quarterback Fabian Walker found receiver Anquan Boldin on a 5-yard scoring toss. Xavier Beitia’s PAT gave Florida State a 7-3 edge. Thornton gave the Bulldogs the lead back as he picked off a Walker pass and returned it for a touchdown. Bennett’s PAT put Georgia out in front 10-7. Then, quarterback D.J. Shockley hit receiver Terrence Edwards (above) for a 37-yard touchdown pass. Bennett pushed the advantage to 20-7 by drilling a 42-yard field goal. On Florida State’s next possession, end Will Thompson knocked the ball away and Veal recovered it. That set up Bennett’s third field goal, pushing Georgia ahead 23-7. Florida State pulled within 10 at 23-13 on the final play of the third quarter, as a two-point conversion run was stopped by Chris Clemons. Bennett’s final field goal, a 35-yarder, came with more than 10 minutes remaining, but the Bulldogs defense kept Florida State at bay.

Georgia Wins Overtime Thriller To Defeat Purdue At The 2004 Capital One Bowl

A

fter scoring the game’s first 24 points, Georgia needed a Kregg Lumpkin overtime touchdown run to hold off Purdue, 34-27, in front of a Capital One Bowl crowd of 64,565 and an ABC national television audience. The Bulldogs opened the game with a nine-play, 68-yard drive culminating in a six-yard Fred Gibson touchdown reception from quarterback and offense bowl MVP David Greene (right). The Bulldogs would use a Billy Bennett field goal and two more Greene TD passes--one each to Gibson and Reggie Brown--to open up a 24-0 lead with 4:47 left in the first half. Purdue would answer with a touchdown and field goal to pull within 14, 24-10, at halftime. After a scoreless third quarter, Purdue scored the fourth quarter’s first points on a Kyle Orton two-yard run with 9:11 left. Georgia then used up 4:44 on a 12-play, 57-yard drive ending in a 40-yard Bennett field goal. Late in the fourth, Purdue needed just three plays to go 66 yards and pull within three, 27-24, on a Kyle Orton three-yard touchdown pass. Following an unsuccessful onside kick, it seemed Georgia had clinched the game. However, attempting to run out the clock, Lumpkin fumbled the ball, giving Purdue the ball at the Georgia 34 yard line with 1:19 left. Ben Jones nailed a 44-yard field goal with 49 seconds left to tie the game at 27-all. On the first possession of overtime, Georgia drove to the one yard line. On fourth and goal, Lumpkin pushed his way into the end zone to give the Bulldogs a 34-27 lead. Purdue also drove inside the 10 yard line, but failed to convert. On fourth and goal from the four yard line, Tony Taylor intercepted the pass to clinch a Bulldogs victory.

Worth Noting...

• Georgia’s game captains against Purdue were Bruce Thornton, Billy Bennett, David Greene and Sean Jones. • David Greene (offense) and David Pollack (defense) were named Georgia’s Capital One Bowl Most Valuable Players. • PK Billy Bennett set two more NCAA records with Field Goals Attempted and Made in a season, going 31-for-38. He scored 10 points against Purdue to give him 409 for his career, which ranks second in NCAA history. For the season, he had 131 which is a school and SEC record for points kicked in a season. For his career, Bennett finished 87-for-110 in field goal attempts and 148-for-151 in PATs. • Kregg Lumpkin made his first career start against Purdue. He rushed a career-high 27 times for 90 yards and one TD. Georgia did not have a running back rush for more than 100 yards in a game this season for the first time since 1972. Lumpkin was over 100 yards but then went under the century mark on the fourth-quarter fumble.

“I’ll tell you what...that was fun! I’m just ecstatic how our season ended. A lot of these guys have gone through a lot (this season). Somehow we found a way to get here and win the game. I have never been in overtime as a head coach or assistant. You tend to forget what you study. I was huddling with my coaches to do the right thing.”

Bulldogs Beat Badgers In 2005 Outback Bowl

he Georgia Bulldogs (10-2) won their third consecutive bowl game, holding off a late Wisconsin rally to defeat the Badgers 24-21 in front of 62,414 Outback Bowl fans at Raymond James Stadium and an ESPN national television audience. It was the last game for several Bulldog seniors, including All-American DE David Pollack (right) whose three-sack performance earned him Outback Bowl MVP. Overall, Georgia’s defense stifled the Badgers’ offense, allowing just 13 points while recording seven quarterback sacks and forcing and recovering two fumbles. Wisconsin (9-3) took an early second-quarter 6-3 lead in a battle of field goals, but Georgia’s offense came to life in the middle of the game. Senior QB David Greene connected on a 24-yard touchdown with senior Fred Gibson and later a 24-yard TD to senior Jeremy Thomas, who made a great catch off a deflection. Freshman Thomas Brown notched his fourth 100-yard rushing game of the year with 111 yards on 16 carries, including a 29-yard touchdown run to give Georgia a 24-6 lead. Wisconsin rallied late with one offensive and one defensive touchdown, but the Bulldogs prevailed in the end.

Worth Noting...

• Georgia’s game captains against Wisconsin were David Greene, David Pollack, Reggie Brown and Thomas Davis. • With the victory, Georgia’s senior class posted a 42-10 record in their career which is second best in school history. Senior QB David Greene started all 52 games. The Class of 2004 posted their third straight season with at least 10 wins. • Greene set the SEC Career Record for Total Offense on the first play of the game, a 31-yard pass to Leonard Pope. He finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time winningest QB at 42-10. • David Pollack also finished his Georgia career in style, tying an Outback Bowl record with three sacks. He ended his career with 36 sacks, which ranks fourth in SEC history and is a Bulldog record. Georgia’s seven sacks on the day is an Outback Bowl record. • Two more seniors, wide receivers Fred Gibson and Reggie Brown, also finished their careers in the record books. Gibson (4 rec., 42 yards, 1 TD) ended his career second in Georgia history with 20 TD-receptions and third in career receptions with 161. Brown (3 rec., 39 yards) ended his career with 144 catches which ties for fourth in school history with Hines Ward. • The Bulldogs have played the Badgers twice in their history, both times an Outback Bowl victory (33-6 win in 1998). Georgia is now 7-2 all-time against Big Ten opponents.

Mark Richt Said…

“I’m just thankful to get 10 wins. To me it makes it a great season. I said going in if we didn’t win it was a good season, if we won this game and got number 10, it’s a great season. It wasn’t a perfect season; we’re still looking for perfection, that’s what we want. You can’t say a 10-win season like that is anything other than great. I’m just proud of our players and the job they did. David Pollack was, as usual, fantastic. He got banged up a little here and there but continued to fight.”

Fast Start By West Virginia Leads To Upset of Georgia In 2006 Nokia Sugar Bowl

T

he Georgia Bulldogs were unable to overcome a 28-0 deficit and fell to West Virginia 38-35 in the 2006 Nokia Sugar Bowl in front of 74,458 fans at the Georgia Dome and an ABC national television audience. The Bulldogs finished the season with their fourth 10-win campaign in as many years. Despite three touchdowns and a 277-yard passing performance by quarterback D.J. Shockley in his final collegiate game, the Bulldogs’ late rally fell short after they outscored the Mountaineers 35-10 to finish the game. Tailback Thomas Brown (right) led Georgia with 78 yards rushing, including a 52-yard touchdown. The Bulldogs managed to close the gap to 38-35 after Shockley connected with fellow senior Bryan McClendon for a 43-yard touchdown with 5:13 left in the fourth quarter. But after West Virginia punter Phil Brady shot up the middle to convert a fake punt on 4th-and-6 in the game’s final drive, the Mountaineers converted yet another first down and let the clock run out. West Virginia jump-started the game’s scoring with three touchdowns in the first quarter - two by Darius Reynaud and one by Steve Slaton - and went up 28-0 with 14:10 remaining in the second quarter. The Bulldogs managed to register their first points at the 12:58 mark in the second quarter on Kregg Lumpkin’s careerlong 34-yard touchdown run. Minutes later, Brown flew past West Virginia’s defense for a 52-yard touchdown to cut the Mountaineers lead to 28-14. Following a West Virginia field goal, Shockley hit Leonard Pope for a 4-yard touchdown after the Bulldogs’ 76-yard drive. Georgia crept even closer to the Mountaineers in the third quarter on A.J. Bryant’s 34-yard scoring catch and went into the final period down 31-28. But with the lead in reach for the first time, Steve Slaton, who finished with 204 yards and three touchdowns for West Virginia, scored a touchdown on his second 52-yard run of the game to clinch the victory for the Mountaineers.

Worth Noting...

• Georgia’s captains for the Sugar Bowl were Mike Gilliam, D.J. Shockley, Kedric Golston and Max Jean-Gilles. • D.J. Shockley tied Georgia’s mark for most touchdown passes in a season (24) after connecting with his receivers for three scores in the Sugar Bowl. Eric Zeier had 24 in 1993 and 1994. • Kregg Lumpkin’s 34-yard touchdown run in the second quarter was his longest rush of the season and of his career. • Thomas Brown notched a 52-yard touchdown against West Virginia, which tied for the game’s longest run and was the longest run of his career with the Bulldogs.

“My hat’s off to West Virginia. They did a great job. At least we didn’t lay down and die. Being down 28, we just couldn’t make enough plays to win it. Going for the fake punt showed a lot of guts and great execution (by West Virginia). You’ve got to give them credit. But I’m proud of our seniors.”

Second Half Surge Rallies Bulldogs Past Va. Tech In 2006 Chick-fil-A Bowl

G

eorgia stormed back from an 18-point deficit to defeat 14thranked Virginia Tech 31-24 in the Chick-fil-A Bowl in the Georgia Dome in front of a bowl-record crowd of 75,406 and a national ESPN television audience. It marked Georgia’s thirdstraight win over a ranked opponent as it closed out the year 9-4. Bulldog linebacker Tony Taylor (two interceptions) and quarterback Matthew Stafford (129 yards, 1 TD) were named the Defensive and Offensive MVPs. In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs got scoring runs from tailback Kregg Lumpkin and fullback Brannan Southerland along with one of kicker Brandon Coutu’s threee field goals (including a Georgia bowl record 51-yarder) to complete the comeback. Georgia fell behind 21-3 by the second quarter, but then held the Hokies to just a fourth quarter field goal. Stafford finished 9-for-21 for 129 yards and a TD after going just 3-for-9 in the first half. Tight end Martrez Milner had three catches for 49 yards and a touchdown, and he caught a critical two-point conversion pass that tied the game at 21-all. Taylor’s two picks tied Georgia’s bowl record held by Scott Woerner and Ronnie Harris. The Bulldogs had three interceptions and one fumble recovery on the night. In fact, 18 of Georgia’s points came off of turnovers. Georgia led 3-0 after the first but then the Hokies built a 21-3 halftime edge. The final touchdown was a 53-yard lateral pass from Eddie Royal to tight end Sam Wheeler. The Bulldogs first touchdown was sparked by a successful onside kick by Brian Mimbs who also recovered it. Taylor’s interception at the start of the fourth quarter set up the game-tying touchdown. On the Hokies next possession, Charles Johnson sacked Sean Glennon and caused him to fumble which Quentin Moses recovered. It led to the go-ahead field goal by Coutu. Then three plays later, Taylor tipped a Glennon pass that was picked off by Paul Oliver who returned it to the 1. Southerland stormed into the endzone for a 31-21 lead.

Worth Noting...

• Georgia’s captains for the Chick-fil-A Bowl were Nick Jones, Tra Battle, Tony Taylor and Quentin Moses. The senior class finished their career with a 40-12 career record. • With the 31-24 victory over #14 Virginia Tech, the Bulldogs became the first unranked squad to defeat three straight ranked opponents in school history. • Tony Taylor notched two more interceptions to give him a teambest seven on the year, which was the most in the country by a linebacker. • Georgia’s 28 unanswered points - to erase an 18-point deficit was the biggest come-from-behind victory under Mark Richt as well as in Chick-fil-A Bowl history.

Bulldogs Blast Undefeated Hawai’i To Win 2008 Sugar Bowl

T

he Bulldogs defeated the Hawai’i Warriors 41-10 in the Sugar Bowl on New Years night from the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, La. The victory was Georgia’s ninth appearance in the Sugar Bowl and their 11th straight bowl, which extends the school record. This was the most points the Bulldogs have ever scored in a bowl game as well as their largest margin of victory in a bowl game. Georgia struck early and often versus the Warriors, starting with a Knowshon Moreno 17-yard touchdown run with 9:42 in the first quarter. Moreno, relieving starter Thomas Brown, also had another touchdown, this one from 11-yards, with 57 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Early in the second half, defensive end Marcus Howard sacked Warrior quarterback Colt Brennan on the goal line and recovered a Brennan fumble on the play for a TD, the first of his career. Brown got in on the scoring action with a one yard scamper in the third quarter, and QB Matthew Stafford got into the books with an 11-yard TD pass to Sean Bailey midway through the second quarter. Kicker Brandon Coutu, who hit all five extra points, set a BCS game record with a long field goal of 52 yards. Howard was the MVP of Georgia’s defense and the game as well, as he sacked Colt Brennan three times, caused a fumble, and recovered a fumble for a touchdown on the evening. Hawai’i quarterback Brennan went 22-of-38 for 169 yards and three interceptions. He was sacked eight times by the Bulldogs, including three by Howard and two from freshman linebacker Rennie Curran.

“I’m proud of what our team did. We first of all had the ultimate respect for Hawai’i, their program, June Jones and the job he has done there. I think we conditioned more for this game, I can attest to that. We wanted to make sure everyone was in great condition for this game because we knew, especially on defense, that we were going to rush the passer over and over again.”

Bulldogs Notch 10th Win At 2009 Capital One Bowl

Q

uarterback Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes in the final 18 minutes against No. 18 Michigan State, hitting Knowshon Moreno for the clinching score in the 15th-ranked Bulldogs’ 24-12 Capital One Bowl victory in front of 59,681 fans and an ABC national television audience. Ranked No. 1 by The Associated Press to start the season, the Bulldogs (10-3) gave coach Mark Richt his sixth bowl win in eight tries and put a happy ending on a season that didn’t live up to expectations. The first half was ugly for Stafford, projected to be an early first-round NFL draft pick, and Georgia. He was just 6-for-14 and an interception in the first half and Michigan State (9-4) led 6-3. In the second half, he looked more like the quarterback NFL teams covet. He completed 14 of his final 17 throws, including three TD passes. Stafford started the comeback by directing a 10-play, 96-yard drive midway through the third quarter. He went 6-for-6 for 92 yards and capped it with 35-yard touchdown toss to Michael Moore. Stafford and Aron White hooked up on a 21-yard TD toss with 9 seconds left in the third quarter to put Georgia up 17-6. Stafford was picked as the game’s MVP, completing his performance by showing a nice touch in threading a 21-yard TD pass to Moreno late in the fourth quarter. Stafford set a single-season school record with 25 touchdown passes. The Bulldogs were able to make Michigan State quarterback Brian Hoyer hurry his throws. Hoyer completed 16 of 31 passes for 159 yards with an interception. He threw 21 yards to Mark Dell on fourth-and-22 late in the fourth quarter, and followed that with an interception in the final 40 seconds.

Worth Noting...

• Georgia’s captains for the Capital One Bowl were Mohamed Massquoi, Brannan Southerland, Andrew Williams and Corvey Irvin. • Bulldog junior quarterback Matthew Stafford was named Most Valuable Player after a big second half rallied Georgia past the Spartans. He finished 20-for-31 for 250 yards and 3 TDs. He went 6-for-14 for 71 yards in the first half. He set the single season school record with 25 TD passes. • Georgia had a season-high six sacks and limited MSU to just 31 yards. • Georgia set a record for punt return average in a season at 17.58, breaking the old mark of 16.48 set in 1980. • For the sixth consecutive year, the senior class registered at least 40 wins in their career. The 2008 seniors went 40-12.

Mark Richt Said…

“I am excited about the victory and proud of our seniors. It was a great experience for us down here. Our thoughts going in was to finish very strong for our seniors. We felt like we had some unfinished business to take care of, to get that 10th victory and 40 wins for the seniors. Also, we said since we’re playing in 2009, this is the beginning of 2009, and we wanted to play physical, and we practiced very phsycial. We cut back a bit because of our injuries during the year but then we got after it during bowl practices. Overall, we played better defense.”

Bulldogs Dispatch Texas A&M For Independence Bowl Victory

Texas A&M 0 7 7 6 = 20 Georgia 0 14 10 20 = 44

T

he Georgia Bulldogs closed out the 2009 football season in dominant fashion as they defeated Texas A&M 44-20 in the AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl in front of 49,653 fans in Shreveport, Louisiana. The win capped Georgia’s season on a positive note. After the Aggies tied the game early in the third quarter, Georgia scored 30 unanswered points en route to posting its nationalleading 13th-straight eight-win season. The 44 points was a Bulldog bowl record as Georgia finished 8-5 while the Aggies fell to 6-7. Freshman tailback Washaun Ealey and sophomore tailback Caleb King paced the ground attack for the Bulldogs. The game, which was scoreless for nearly the entire first half, had a furious finish. A&M receiver Jamie McCoy caught a 15-yard score with 2:33 remaining in the first half, but Georgia sophomore cornerback Brandon Boykin returned his third kickoff of the year for an 81yard touchdown to even the score. A Bacarri Rambo blocked punt was recovered by Vance Cuff at Texas A&M’s two yard line, which allowed King to punch in a quick score to make it 14-7 going into half. Redshirt sophomore tight end Aron White caught two Joe Cox touchdown passes in the second half. Georgia’s defense, coached by defensive line coach Rodney Garner and graduate assistants Mitch Doolittle and Todd Hartley, was led by sophomore linebacker Marcus Dowtin, who had nine tackles. Junior linebacker Rennie Curran had eight, and junior safety Reshad Jones had five tackles and an interception.

Worth Noting…

• Game captains were Joe Cox, Jeff Owens, Rennie Curran, Michael Moore and Prince Miller. • Georgia’s 44 points was a bowl record, eclipsing the previous high of 41 in the win over Hawaii in the 2008 Sugar Bowl. Georgia tied its bowl record for TDs with six, matching the 1942 Orange Bowl champion Bulldogs, a 40-26 win over TCU. • Georgia tight end Aron White (offense) and defensive tackle Geno Atkins (defense) earned Bowl MVP honors on offense and defense. White tied a bowl record with 2 TD catches while Atkins blocked a field goal and finished with three tackles and one sack. • Georgia sophomore Brandon Boykin set a school record and tied the SEC record with three kickoff returns for a TD in a season. Boykin now shares the SEC record with Willie Gault (Tennessee, 1980).

No. 24 UCF Edges Bulldogs In 2010 Liberty Bowl

Georgia 3 0 3 0 = 6 UCF 0 3 0 7 = 10

T

he Bulldogs (6-7) snapped a four-game bowl winning streak by losing to #24 Central Florida in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, marking Georgia’s first postseason loss since the 2006 Sugar Bowl. UCF’s Latavius Murray scored on a 10-yard touchdown run with 9:01 left, and the Knights held on to beat Georgia 10-6 and cap the best season in school history with the program’s first postseason victory. The The Bulldogs had the ball last and converted two fourth downs before Kemal Ishmael knocked down Aaron Murray’s final long throw into the end zone as time expired. In his final attempt, Murray rolled to his left and heaved the ball into the end zone, but Ishmael knocked it to the ground with one hand to clinch the victory. Latavius Murray finished with 104 yards on 18 carries and the Knights’ defense helped slow Georgia’s offensive attack. The Knights held Georgia to 280 yards total offense, well below the Bulldogs’ average of 393.8. UCF senior captain Bruce Miller had 1 1/2 sacks in the fourth quarter, including one on the final drive. The Bulldogs got the ball back three times after Murray’s TD. They went three-and-out on the first two, and Georgia got the ball back for the final time with 2:20 left. The Bulldogs also started both halves driving down field easily before bogging down and settling for field goals of 20 and 41 yards by Blair Walsh. These teams went to halftime tied at 3-3 after a first half in which both Georgia and UCF wasted chances at the end zone.

Worth Noting…

• Game captains were Clint Boling, Shaun Chapas, Akeem Dent and Drew Butler. • Georgia’s bowl winning streak was snapped at four, and the six points was its lowest output in a bowl game since the 1977 Sugar Bowl loss to Pittsburgh (27-3). The Bulldogs end the season at 6-7, their first losing season since 1996 in Jim Donnan’s first year at the helm. • Junior A.J. Green (offense) and junior Brandon Boykin (defense) earned the Outstanding Offensive and Defensive Player of the Game awards for Georgia as voted on by the media. Green finished with eight catches for 77 yards while Boykin had three tackles, one interception and three kickoff returns for 38 yards. • Due to a gastrointestinal condition, Bulldog mascot Uga VIII did not attend the game. “Russ,” who was a substitute mascot for the final two games of the 2009 season and the first six contests in 2010, filled in at the bowl game.

“The only thing you can do at this point is congratulate Coach (George) O’Leary and UCF, and they’ve certainly earned that (win) tonight. They did a great job; they certainly played great defense. They made plays offensively and on special teams. It was outstanding; a really hard fought football game if you like defense. I think the turnovers were pretty much a wash. Both teams had a couple. I don’t think either team had one in the second half. They just did what they had to do when they needed it most. It wasn’t a lack of energy or effort on our guys’ part. That’s all I can say again--is to congratulate them.”

Uga, The Mascot Legacy

Although the University of Georgia is now known as the home of Uga, the pure white English bulldog, several mascots led the Red and Black before Frank W. Seiler provided the current lineage beginning in 1956.

The Goat, Feb. 22, 1892 Georgia’s mascot for its first football game against Auburn, Feb­ruary 22, 1892 in Atlanta, Ga., was a goat. Old newspaper clippings indicate that the goat wore a black coat with red U.G. letters on each side. He also had on a hat with ribbons all down his high horns, and the Auburn fans yelled throughout the game “shoot the billy-goat.” Trilby, 1894 In 1894, Georgia’s mascot was a solid white female bull terrier owned by a student, Charles H. Black, Sr., of Atlanta. Trilby, named Trilby with owner Charles H. Black after a novel by George Du Maurier, served as the campus pet and mascot for the Chi Phi fraternity. Disputing stories speculate the origin of the Bulldog nickname, and the story of Trilby provides yet another opinion: “...every day Trilby took herself down to old Herty field with her master for football practice. She ran signals with the best of them and became an accustomed figure on the athletic field...One morning, Trilby failed to appear for her breakfast and after a frantic search she was finally discovered proudly washing the faces of her newborn family, 13 white puppies...Late one dusky fall afternoon, Trilby appeared for a grid workout and scampering after her came her 13 children, darting through players’ legs, barking and pace. ‘Well,’ suggested one of the players, ‘Trilby has brought us a name, Bulldogs.’ ...Every time a game was played on Herty Field, the boys would floss Trilby and her 13 offerings up with red and black Sanford Stadium Graves ribbons, and so attired they have gone down in history as perhaps the first ‘sponsors’ in southern football.” —Ruth Stanton Cogill (Atlanta newspaper) “After the rein of Trilby and her family, chaos developed in the mascot department at the university. Many games had several, depending on which alumnus got his dog to the game first.” —AJC, Nov. 18, 1962 Mr. Angel, 1944-46 Mr. Angel, a brindle and white colored English Bulldog owned by Eastman,Ga.,physician, Warren Coleman, filled a void during some of the war years. There was no mascot roaming the sidelines and Coleman took Mr. Angel to games and stood with him on the sidelines. His picture on the field and with the Georgia cheerleaders appears in the 1945 and ’46 UGA annual, the Pandora.

Mr. Angel

Butch, 1947-50 Butch was a brin­dled English bulldog owned by Mabry Smith of War­ ner Robins, Ga. He was spotted by students who were attending the 1946 Georgia-Georgia Tech game in Athens, and the canine appeared

to be suited for the mascot position. Smith agreed to loan Butch to the University during the football season along with a female puppy named Tuffy. The female died of a heart attack following the GeorgiaKentucky game in 1948, but Butch continued to serve. Spending the off-season at Smith’s home in Warner Robins, Butch was tragically shot in the summer of 1951 by a policeman after the dog escaped from his pen and was found roaming the streets. Butch is buried behind Smith’s business along Watson Boulevard. In 2004 plans for a marker honoring Butch in his hometown were put into motion by longtime Warner Robins resident Guy Fussell.

Mike, 1951-55 Butch was succeeded by Mike, another brindled English bulldog, owned by C. L. Fain. Mike lived in the field house on campus and died of natural canine causes in 1955. As his master’s thesis, Gene Owens Bronze statue of Mike of Fort Worth, Texas, cast the bronze statue of Mike which is located at the entrance of Memorial Hall. Uga Takes the Field In the last 100 years of intercollegiate football, Georgia’s Uga has established himself as the nation’s most well-known mascot. The line of pure white English bulldogs, which epitomizes everything Georgia, has been owned by the Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler family of Savannah, Ga., since Uga I first graced the campus in 1956. Through the years, Uga has been defined by his spiked collar, a symbol of the position which he holds. He was given his name, an abbreviation for the university, by William Young of Columbus, a law school classmate of Seiler. Each of the Uga mascots is awarded a varsity letter in the form of a plaque, identical to those presented to all Bulldog athletes who letter in their respective sports. As determined and published by the Pittsburgh Press, the Uni­ver­ sity of Georgia is the only major college that actually buries its mascots within the confines of the stadium. Ugas I, II, III, IV and V are buried in marble vaults near the main gate in the embankment of the South stands. Epitaphs to the dogs are inscribed in bronze, and before each home game, flowers are ­placed on their graves. The memorial plot attracts hundreds of fans and visitors each year. For the past 20 years, Uga’s jerseys have been custom-made at the beginning of each season from the same material used for the players’ jerseys. Old jerseys are destroyed. Uga’s on-field home is a permanent air con­di­tion­ed doghouse located next to the cheerleader’s platform, providing comfort in the heat of August and September. The custom-made doghouse is a gift from the Bahamian Bull­dog Club of Nassau, Bahamas, through the courtesy of Fred Hazlewood.

Uga, The Mascot Legacy

Uga I, 1956-66 “Hood’s Ole Dan” Record: 53-48-6 The current Uga line of solid white English bulldogs began with Uga I, Hood’s Ole Dan, born Dec. 2, 1955, in Columbus. Uga I was given to Cecelia Seiler by a friend, Frank Heard of Columbus and appeared in his first game in the 1956 home opener. As recalled by Sonny Seiler, Uga I with Hannah Jones “...his original red jerseys were made by Cecelia. It was necessary to take up children’s t-shirts to fit the dog in the right places. There is no telling how many of these jersey’s he wore out. During the early games in Athens, especially the hot ones before he had a dog house, the large green hedges that surround Sanford Stadium afford welcomed shade in the heat of battle. Unfortunately, the hedges constantly tore these jerseys and new ones had to be made.” epitaph: Damn Good Dog Uga II, 1966-72 “Ole Dan’s Uga” Record: 42-16-3 Uga I was succeeded by his son, Ole Dan’s Uga at an impressive pregame ceremony at Home­ coming, 1966. With the Georgia Redcoat Band lining the field, Uga II was led to the center of the field Uga II with Ann DeLong by Charles Seiler, son of Sonny and Ce­cel­ia. The student body erupt­ed in a cheer that was picked up by the entire stadium, ‘‘Damn Good Dog!’’ SPECIAL APPEARANCES

He took over for Uga III in the 1981 season opener and over the next nine seasons, led Georgia to a record of 77-27-4. The highlight of his career was his personal appearance at the Heisman Trophy Uga IV with Ban­quet with Herschel Walker in Marty Argo New York on December 9, 1982. Uga IV was escorted through thebanquet hall by the president of the Down­town Athletic Club, and was earlier photographed with Herschel by photographers from across the country. The proud Bulldog donned his game jersey for the outing and added the formal touch of a collar and black tie. Uga IV was the first mascot invited to the Heisman Banquet.Declared ‘‘Dog of the Decade’’ by Vince Dooley in 1991, Uga IV was posthumously awarded the highest honor available to University of Georgia mascots — the Georgia varsity letter. epitaph: The Dog of the Decade Otto, 1986 “The Substitute” Record: 3-1

Although Otto was not pure white like his father, he was called upon to fill in for his younger brother, Uga IV, who injured ligaments in his left hind knee when jumping off a hotel bed before the Vanderbilt conOtto test. In four games during the 1986 season, Otto led the team to a 3-1 record and also co-mascotted (along with Uga IV), a victory over instate rival Georgia Tech. After winning his first two games, fans cheered,

Uga, The Mascot Legacy “2-and-0 with Otto!” Dooley, serving as head coach during Otto’s brief tenure, favored the substitute the most. “I have always had a great affection for those who came off the bench and performed, and he did that and had a great time,” Dooley said. Otto is buried in the Seiler’s backyard.

Uga V, 1990-99 “UGA IV’s Magillicuddy II” Record: 65-39-1

In the first game of 1990, Uga V officially began his reign as the Georgia mascot taking over from his father Uga IV, who passed away at his home in Savannah on Feb. 26, 1990. Uga V was the last pup sired by Uga IV and was born on March 6, 1990. Named in honor of one of the greatest Bulldogs, Dan Magill, former Assistant Athletic Director for Public Relations and longtime tennis coach and sports information director. Surprisingly, the Seiler family became aware that Uga IV’s mate was expecting only 10 days before the litter was due. This notice came a week after Uga IV had passed away at his home in Savannah from kidney failure. There were only three pups in the litter and the last one born on March 6 was the only solid white male. Uga V had been perhaps the most well known of all the Bulldog mascots highlighted by his appearance on the cover of the April 28, 1997, Sports Illustrated which declared him the nation’s best college mascot. Rocketed to stardom, he also appeared in Clint Eastwood’s “Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil” — filmed in his hometown of Savannah, Ga. Uga V also presided over Georgia’s most successful collective sporting effort in department history as the Bulldogs claimed four NCAA team titles during the 1998-99 season — women’s swimming and diving, women’s gymnastics, men’s tennis and men’s golf — and placed second in the Directors’ Cup race. He died on Nov. 22, 1999, just over two months after his retirement. epitaph: “Nation’s Best College Mascot”—Sports Illustrated

Uga VI, 1999-2008 “Uga V’s Whatchagot Loran” Record: 87-27

In 2007, Uga VI became the winningest mascot in school history and owned a record of 87-27. The fall of Uga VI 2008 would have been his 10th season after Uga VI reigned over more games than any other mascot with 114. He died on June 27, 2008. In his last game, the Bulldogs defeated Hawai’i 41-10 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 1, 2008. Georgia finished the season ranked second in the AP poll. The pregame passing of the bone ceremony from Uga V to his heftier and friskier son, Whatchagot Loran, took place at the 1999 Georgia-South Carolina contest. Only a year old at his coronation, Uga VI stands as the biggest of all the Uga mascots weighing in at 65 pounds — 20 pounds heavier than his father. His first season climaxed in a magnificent come from behind victory over Purdue at the Outback Bowl in Tampa. The comeback from a 25-point deficit marked an unprecedented feat in Georgia annals and the largest comeback in collegiate bowl history. The 2000 season ended in Hawaii, but due to the distance and a quarantine rule, Uga VI missed the O’ahu Bowl, marking the first time the Georgia mascot had missed the postseason game since the 1969 Sun Bowl. Alongside first-year head coach Mark Richt, Uga VI saw his third consecutive 8-4 season, which included a 26-24 win at then-No. 6 Tennessee for the Bulldogs’ first win in Knoxville since 1980. The streak of consecutive bowl victories ended at three for the beloved mascot as Georgia fell to Boston College 20-16 in the Music City Bowl in Nashville. Uga VI and Georgia experienced their best season in two decades as the 2002

Bulldogs won a record 13 games (to only one loss), and topped Arkansas to win the program’s first league title since 1982. And Uga VI roamed the sidelines as the Bulldogs defeated Florida State in the 2003 Nokia Sugar Bowl, 26-13. The wins kept piling up for Uga VI and the Bulldogs in 2003, as the team posted an 11-3 record, returned to the SEC Championship game before falling to eventual national champion LSU. Uga VI worked on his tan in sunny Florida as Georgia held on for a 34-27 overtime victory against Purdue in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando. The 2004 season saw the Bulldogs post a 10-2 record, and Uga VI returned to Tampa for the second time in his young career, as Georgia earned a 24-21 win against Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl. Year 2005 ended with a record of 10-3 and a loss in the Nokia Sugar Bowl 38-35 against West Virginia on January 2, 2006. The game was played in Atlanta, Ga. due to destruction in New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina. The 2006 season marked the 50th anniversary of the Uga legacy of mascots at UGA. Georgia returned to Atlanta, Ga. to defeat Virginia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on December 30, 2006 to end the season with a 9-4 record. In 2007, Uga VI passed Uga IV (77-24-4) for the most wins of any bulldog in school history.

Uga VII, 2008-2009 “Loran’s Best” Record: 16-7

The seventh in the Uga line of Georgia mascots was introduced to the Georgia people on Aug. 30, 2008, during pre-game ceremonies of the Bulldogs’ season opener against Georgia Southern. “Loran’s Best” officially became “Uga VII,” when he was introduced for the first time to the Sanford Stadium crowd prior to kickoff of the Georgia vs. Georgia Southern game. He was escorted onto the field by members of the Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler family of Savannah who have owned the continuous line of mascots since Uga I took up the mantle in 1956. Uga VII passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 19 of heart-related causes. It was the Thursday before the final home game of the 2009 season and the Bulldogs did not have a live mascot at the game. Instead, a wreath was placed on UGA VII’s doghouse, and the players wore a special UGA VII decal on their helmets to remember him. “Russ,” the five-year-old haf brother of Uga VII, served as the Bulldog mascot for the Georgia Tech game in Atlanta and helped his squad to a 30-24 win. He was the first substitute mascot since “Otto” in 1986. “Russ” may also serve as the mascot in the 2009 bowl game, but he will not be next in line of permanent Uga mascots. Uga VIII will be selected some time in 2010.

epitaph: Gone Too Soon Uga VIII, 2010 “Big Bad Bruce” Record: 4-2

Born Sept. 12, 2009 in Savannah, Ga., Uga VIII is the grandson of Uga VI. He carries on the tradition of more than 60 years of all-white bulldogs bred by Frank “Sonny” Seiler and family. Uga VIII was named in honor of Dr. Bruce Hollett from the University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Hollett has been a long time caregiver for the famed line of English bulldogs. UGA VIII served six games in the 2010 season before he became ill and missed the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. He passed away with lymphoma on February 4, 2011.

Russ, 2009-Present Current Record: 14-8

“Russ,” the five-year-old half brother of Uga VII, is in his third stint as the substitute Bulldog mascot. He worked nine games during the 2009 and 2010 seasons after Uga VII and VIII passed away. His time as mascot has included the 2011 SEC Eastern Division championship, two road wins at Georgia Tech and a victory over Texas A&M in the 2009 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. He was the first substitute mascot since “Otto” in 1986. Russ served as the substitute mascot until Uga VIII took over before the 2010 Vanderbilt game and has been back on the sidelines since the 2010 AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
