Georgia Bulldogs: Our View of the Game

Odd times for both teams as J'ville meeting arrives By DAVE JORDAN

Dave Jordan

The annual game in Jacksonville between the football teams at the University of Georgia and the University of Florida is a spectacle unto itself. Typically, a win means another step closer to a possible Southeastern Conference championship for the game’s victor, although many times bragging rights are the main prize — and enough of one for the respective fans. This year’s Georgia-Florida game — and that is the proper way to term it, the “Georgia-Florida game” — will spell serious trouble for the loser and possibly some coaches on the losing team’s staff. Georgia’s preseason outlook was one of great optimism, laced with a degree of caution based on the Bulldogs’ difficult schedule. Rather, the early part of the schedule. The Dogs, ranked fifth in the preseason poll, opened at Clemson, ranked No. 8 at the time, then hosted No. 6 South Carolina the very next Saturday. A week off and a home date with North Texas lessened the load a tad, but sixth-ranked LSU then ar-

rived in Athens for Game 4. Georgia went 3-1 over those games, losing precisely where a loss would hurt them least, at Clemson, but playing stellar ball against both the Gamecocks and Tigers to get back to a No. 6 ranking going into Game 5. There, problems began to materialize. Already playing without standout safety Tray Matthews and studly tailback Todd Gurley — who sprained his ankle against LSU — the Dogs lost their other firststring running back, Keith Marshall, and quality receivers Michael Bennett and Justin Scott-Wesley to injuries in a battle with Tennessee in its home stadium. A late drive and touchdown orchestrated by quarterback Aaron Murray and an overtime field goal by Marshall Morgan saved the Georgia team from embarrassment, but the loss of so many key cogs to injury did

not bode well. Now 4-1 overall and already 3-0 in conference play, the Dogs merely had to weather the storm of SEC foes Missouri and Vanderbilt before heading to Duval County to face the rival Florida Gators on the banks of the St. Johns River. That two-headed storm turned out to be a typhoon of the highest order. Missouri, undefeated and ranked 25th, handled the Dogs with relative ease, winning 41-26 despite playing the final stages of the game with its backup quarterback. Vanderbilt, 3-3 at the time with wins over the likes of Austin Peay, Massachusetts and Alabama-Birmingham, saw the Dogs build a 27-14 lead by the dawn of the fourth quarter, then reeled off the game’s final 17 points to send then 15thranked Georgia to its second straight loss and out of both the Associated Press poll and the inaugural BCS standings of 2013. Now come the Gators, sporting the same record as the Dogs and hurting a bit themselves after dropping two in a row in conference, including a 36-17 whipping in their most recent game at now No. 5 Missouri. Both teams had the inside track on the

SEC East division crown entering their dates with Missouri. Had either team won out from there, they would have gone to Atlanta to face the best of the West. Now both teams are seemingly in disarray, both searching for answers to why they can never get all three phases of the game — offense, defense and special teams — working correctly on the same day. Georgia could conceivably lose four conference games and finish 6-6 overall if it doesn’t take care of at least some business in its games with Florida, Auburn and Georgia Tech — none of which are in Sanford Stadium. Florida, too, has enough trouble in its path to result in three more league losses, not to mention a date with No. 3 Florida State that could potentially leave them 5-7 when the bowl committees start sending out invites. It is the oddest of times for both the programs at each state’s flagship university as they descend on the nation’s largest city by area in the contiguous United States. The next few weeks could mean great fortune or monumental doom. Odd times indeed.

Florida Gators: Our View of the Game

About to get a new taste of Florida-Georgia rivalry By NATHAN DEEN

The Brunswick News

For most schools in the SEC, there are rivals and then there are archrivals. Some rivalries mean more to some fans than others — and that usually depends on where you live. For myself, the school I grew up loathing and still do to this day is Florida State. I lived in the Florida Panhandle for 20 years. Many people I went to high school with went to Florida State, but my ambition was to be a Florida Gator. The best times of my life happened during my years in Gainesville, Fla.: Urban Meyer won his second national title and the Gators continued to crush FSU year after year. When I was in grade school, it was often the other way around. Bobby Bowden seemed to be the only one who had Steve Spurrier’s number. Florida would often finish in the top 10 and end up playing in a BCS bowl, while we watched our counterparts play for national championships because the Gators didn’t usually beat the Seminoles in the big game at year’s end.

I started my journalism career on the other side of this state, in Columbus. There, I met many Georgia fans who hated everything about Auburn, which was a mere 45 minutes away, and we got along pretty well. I now have many good friends who are Georgia fans. One of them said it had everything to do with the area we lived in. Half of Columbus pulls for Auburn and there are many Tiger alumni there. It didn’t take much time living in Brunswick to realize my friend was right about the rivalry depending on your location, which is unfortunate because I really don’t hate Georgia. In fact, when the Bulldogs are not playing Florida, I pull for them. I’ve always considered Georgia as a respected rival and because the Florida-Georgia game is such a unique experience, I would love

to see both teams undefeated and SEC East supremacy at stake every year. I guess the best explanation for my indifference toward the Bulldogs is that I didn’t have a reason to hate them while growing up a Gator fan in the 1990s. The Ol’ Ball Coach didn’t lose to Georgia very often. Sadly, the bulk of the Bulldog community in Brunswick doesn’t share mutual feelings toward Florida. In fact, they probably view

Florida like I do FSU. A certain supervisor of mine (jokingly?) said he had reservations about my hiring because I went to school at UF. I guess I will just have to continue to turn the other cheek. Maybe if I live in this area long enough, my feelings will begin to change. Heck, they may change on Saturday — three consecutive losses to Georgia is unfamiliar territory for me. There’s not as much at stake in this year’s meeting as I hoped there would be. I saw Georgia as a legitimate national title contender after its 44-41 classic win over LSU, and Florida had finally found a quarterback in Tyler Murphy to go with its elite defense. Four weeks and a dozen injuries later, the two squads are playing an elimination game, with the winner having only an outside chance of getting to Atlanta. The head coaches walking both sidelines can ill afford another loss. Still, there’s nothing like seeing a stadium equally split into red and blue. Hopefully, Bulldog and Gator fans can agree on that — no matter where they hail from.

Georgia-Florida: Homecoming

For some, game truly a homecoming By SARAH LUNDGREN The Brunswick News

first-time visitors to get a taste that will make them want to come back. “The weekend is definitely good for the economy and tourism. It’s especially neat for people who have never been down here for Georgia-Florida before because we have great venues to watch the game. I’ve only gone to Jacksonville for the game twice. Who wouldn’t want to tailgate at the beach?” Nermoe said. For some older graduates, like Lawton Tollison, the close proximity to the college atmosphere and the game itself are a winning combination. He’s made the trek to Jacksonville every time the game has been played there since 1976. He says it’s a world of difference compared to the five-hour trip to Athens he and a group took for the game against LSU in September. “Having the game in our backyard, I wouldn’t have it any other way. What we’re excited about is that we’ve got a chance to win three in a row against Florida probably for the first time since the Dead Sea just had a headache,” Tollison joked. He’s grateful that the “powers that be” in Jacksonville and at the respective universities have worked to maintain the game in such a nearby place. The Georgia-Florida game is a chance for Tollison to let his fan flag fly. Willie McClendon, former Georgia football standout in the 1970s and a member of the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame, also appreciates his visits to the area during Georgia-Florida festivities. After growing up in Brunswick and graduating from Glynn Academy, getting to come back to his hometown every season was a highlight. “It always afforded me a chance to see my family. But one of the reasons this is such a tradition is the proximity of the alumni base of both colleges to the game,” McClendon said.

No matter what the football season has looked like so far for the Georgia Bulldogs, the Georgia-Florida rivalry is always high energy. Even with the once top-10 ranked team falling to Clemson, Missouri and Vanderbilt, Bulldog pride still reigns strong. Many in the Bulldog nation, from current students to alumni and fans in general, will descend upon the Golden Isles beginning Thursday. Some will stay for the weekend and grab a seat at a local venue to watch the big game. For others, it’s just a stop on the route to Jacksonville and what is still known to most fans as the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” For area residents, it feels about as close to being between the hedges in Sanford Stadium as it can get without having to make the trip to Athens. For recent graduates and St. Simons Island natives Allison Nermoe and Paula VanOtteren, it’s like a UGA homecoming in their backyard. “Because I get to see people from college, it creates that deeper connection than other games in the season. It doesn’t matter who you watch the game with, you have this common, unspoken bond,” Nermoe, a 2010 graduate, said. VanOtteren, a 2009 graduate, says that though the game is more than an hour away, a visit to St. Simons Island and the rest of Glynn County has become a part of the Georgia-Florida tradition. “It’s a good combination of the feel of Athens and a college town while still being at home,” VanOtteren said. The visitors who arrive and the local fans who step out into the community also contribute to the area, which both women say is evident during the weekend. It’s a chance for

Don’t expect to see much orange and blue on St. Simons Island during Georgia-Florida weekend. Loyal Georgia fans traditionally take over the island in a sea of red, black and white ensembles, showcasing their Athens pride in every aspect of their outfits, from hats down to their boots. “Wearing red and black is just one of the ways to show your support and loyalty to Georgia,” said Sandra Delaney, owner of The Yellow Canary, 134 Retreat Plaza, St. Simons Island. Delaney, a Georgia grad, puts up her Red and Black wall of clothing items in UGA-approved colors starting in July and “staying up until the championship game,” she said. She even broadcasts the games over the store’s speakers on Saturdays during the fall. “There’s no excitement like a Bulldogs game day,” she said. Ewell Gay, owner of Maggie’s Boutique, 1616 Frederica Road, St. Simons Island, carries a plethora of Georgia merchandise that includes T-shirts, clothing accessories, decorations and more as well as plus-size options. “We have been the Lady Dawgs headquarters for 39 years,” said Gay, who places all merchandise on sale during Georgia/Florida week. “I always try to find items that nobody else sells. I design a special Georgia/Florida T-shirt every year, too.” Game-day attire can range from the comfortable T-shirts and baseball caps to fashionable dresses, depending on where a person tailgates. For those who are lacking a representative item or feel the need to change up their wardrobe, this shopping guide will tell you where to go to be ready for Saturday’s big showdown.

This Bulldog Bosom Buddy Bag is a great way for a lady to show off her UGA pride on game day. Cost is $165, Maggie's Boutique.

Georgia-Florida: Menus

Competition just as fierce for eateries By KELLY QUIMBY The Brunswick News

It’s Georgia-Florida weekend in Brunswick and the Golden Isles, and the competition for hungry fans is fierce. For the eateries and bars on St. Simons Island in particular, crowds are won or lost with drink specials, live music and extra hours. “You’ve got to stay competitive,” said Tyler Wiggins, manager of Gnat’s Landing in the Redfern Village. “It’s one of the biggest weekends of the year. We have a projector and nine TVs, so the altogether package is pretty enticing.” Gnat’s Landing will also offer the complimentary peanuts and oysters it usually provides during University of Georgia football games. The food goes a bit more quickly the weekend of the Florida game. At Iguanas Seafood Restaurant, 303

Mallery St., St. Simons Island, manager Pat Burnham said the doors will stay open an additional four hours, until 2 a.m., instead of the usual closing time at 10 p.m. The restaurant will have plenty of service staff on hand to accommodate the anticipated crowd, Burnham said. She added that restaurant’s sister nightclub, Rafters at 3151⁄2 Mallery St., will have a disc jockey.

“We’ve done it for several years, and we usually have a pretty good turnout,” Burnham said. “We’re busy. But we know it’s a big weekend on the island all the way around.” Restaurants and bars on the mainland aren’t going to miss out on the party.

Bates said the game will be broadcast Saturday on a large screen with plenty of beer and wing specials. “We’re definitely going to have a projector and big screen, and a wing ding special kind of thing,” Bates said. It’s also First Friday weekend in downtown Brunswick, the evening when restaurants usually draw crowds with specials. At the Ritz Theatre, 1530 Newcastle St., the Golden Isles Arts & Humanities will present “The Art of the Dawg,” a history and celebration of the UGA Bulldogs and their fans, from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. It will include the Davis Family UGA collection, started in 1935, which will be on display in the gallery through Nov. 30. The UGA Extension Service estimates that some 8,000 fans and visitors descended on St. Simons Island during last year’s GeorgiaFlorida matchup, and the same large turnout is expected this year. Once revelers have had their fill of food and drink, the extension service encourages them to “Stash Your Trash” at designated bins and containers across the island and beach. Volunteers to help remove the excess bottles, cans and wrappers from Friday’s festivities will meet at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at the Old Coast Guard Station access point.

Georgia-Florida: Tailgating tips

Fans eager to 'chomp' on game day By BRITTANY TATE The Brunswick News

Fans of both the Georgia Bulldogs and Florida Gators may not have much in common — except for their fierce loyalty to their teams — but when it comes to the tailgate and at-home parties, they all enjoy chomping down on some savory appetizers and biting into some delicious entrees. Don’t fumble the party with the same old platter of barbecue chicken wings or a plate full of bacon cheeseburger sliders. Switch it up and bring the rivalry into your recipes. If you are a true Dawg lover and enjoy the tastes of Coastal Georgia, try making some gator gumbo, says Brian Justice, owner of Tasteful Temptations. “Alligator gumbo is fun for the day, especially for the Dawgs,� Justice joked. “I

Georgia-Florida: Houses divided

Gator fans in Isles proudly wear the blue and orange By MARTIN RAND III The Brunswick News

The Georgia-Florida game can’t come soon enough for Lexie Turner, who has a special annual event coming up on Saturday. It’s her one-year anniversary with Zack Turner. The two lovebirds plan to attend the Coastal Georgia Regional Fair in Brunswick with their 6-month-old daughter Destinie to celebrate. However, what the trio will wear to the fair has yet to be determined because the family has its attire waged on the second most important event of the day for them: the annual football game between the University of Georgia and the University of Florida. The Turner Family is devoted to the Gators but live in a divided home with Lexie’s younger brother, a devout Georgia Bulldog fan. Zack Turner and Ryan Davis, the brother of Lexie Turner, made a bet that if the Bulldogs win the match between the SEC rivals, the whole family will have to wear UGA shirts and colors to the fair. If the Gators win, Davis will have to sport Florida colors the rest of the day. “I’ll be watching the game with my fingers crossed,” said Lexie Turner, who is not too fond of wearing red and black. Even if the Gators do win, Lexie Turner’s brother, and her whole family for that matter, will get the most laughs throughout the year from teasing the native Brunswick

resident for being a Florida fan living in Georgia. As a child, Lexie Turner followed in her mother’s footsteps of rooting for the Bulldogs, but since she’s been with Zack Turner, who was born in Florida, her favorite colors have changed to blue and orange. “We’re definitely the oddballs of the family,” said Lexie. Trish Staffer knows all about their predicament. The 27-year-old was born in south Florida but has lived in Georgia for the last 24 years. She gets embarrassed often on social media sites by her diehard UGA friends who make fun of Florida. The Brunswick resident doesn’t even watch the game in Georgia anymore. While hundreds of UGA fans flock to St. Simons Island to enjoy the game, Staffer hops in her vehicle, which is decked out with Swamp Life and Gator stickers on the back and blue and orange beads hanging on the rear view mirror, and drives to Jacksonville to watch the game at The Landing. The environment is a lot tamer compared to what happens in Glynn County, says Staffer, who wears her No. 15 Tim Tebow jersey while watching the game. “I like to watch the game and have fun,” she said. “It’s better to watch it with friends.” Watching the game in Florida territory may yield more Gator friends for Staffer, but for the Turner trio, they’ll be surrounded by a red and black sea of UGA fans while watching the game with family.

Georgia season: Dogs' Road To J’Ville Game 1: at CLEMSON

HUGE TAILGATE TENT EVENT! Thursday, Friday & Saturday

• HATS • G.A. APPAREL for Boys & Girls

Bulldogs fall in opener Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C. — As far as Tajh Boyd is concerned, Clemson’s victory against Georgia wasn’t a statement as much as a step toward much greater goals. Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for two others as Clemson defeated No. 5 Georgia 38-35. It was the Tigers second straight win over a top-10 opponent from the Southeastern Conference. While the victory over LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl left Clemson with a strong finish to last season, this win gave the Tigers a strong start on what they hope is a special season. “I think it was a good win,” Boyd said. “Nothing that we didn’t expect as a program, but it turned a lot of heads in college football.” Especially if Boyd and the Tigers keep playing this well. Boyd matched Georgia when Clemson’s defense struggled early on. When the Tigers turned up the pressure on Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray, Boyd made Georgia pay. The Tigers took the lead for good on Chandler Catanzaro’s 24-yard field goal in the third quarter. Boyd pushed the margin to 38-28 in the final quarter with an 87-yard drive that ended with tight end Stanton Seckinger tip-toeing the sideline on a 9-yard TD pass. “In games like this, it’s always five or six plays that you’ve got to make. And we did,” Swinney said. Murray was sacked four times by Clemson’s defense, considered one of the team’s biggest question marks.

Boyd also had a 77-yard TD pass to Sammy Watkins and a 24-yard scoring throw to Zac Brooks. Boyd added touchdown runs of 4 and 2 yards to win the lone matchup of top-10 teams in college football’s opening weekend. It lived up to the billing, a back-and-forth classic that should vault Boyd to the top of the Heisman watch lists and get Clemson into the top five of the rankings. Boyd kept Georgia’s defense on its heels all game. “He never rattled. He never shook. His ability to run the football made us successful,” Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris said. Georgia had a chip-shot try for a tying kick on its next possession after Catanzaro’s go-ahead field goal, but couldn’t get it off because of a low snap by Nathan Theus. Georgia’s Todd Gurley ran for 154 yards and two touchdowns. He was slowed by a quad injury, coach Mark Richt said, after his early 75-yard touchdown run. “I don’t think there’s anyone in there (locker room) ready to jump off a bridge," Richt said. While Boyd soared, Murray struggled to move the Bulldogs when it counted most. He led a 64-yard, hurry-up drive in the final quarter and his 1-yard TD run cut a 10-point lead to 38-35 with 1:19 left. But Clemson recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock to end Georgia’s five-game series win streak. The teams open the 2014 season in Athens.

Bulldogs roll past Gamecocks Associated Press

ATHENS – So much for Aaron Murray’s reputation as a quarterback who can’t win the big game. The senior took care of that with one of the best performances of his career. Murray threw for 309 yards and four touchdowns, Georgia’s beleaguered defense finally came up with a stop, and the 11th-ranked Bulldogs defeated No. 6 South Carolina 41-30 for an early edge in the Southeastern Conference East. Coming off a 38-35 loss at Clemson, Georgia could not afford another defeat if it wanted to remain a serious contender for a national title. Murray capped his stellar day for the Bulldogs (1-1, 1-0 SEC) by slipping away from South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney and connecting with Justin Scott-

Wesley on an 85-yard touchdown pass with 13 minutes remaining. “It was a lot of fun,” said Murray, who came in with a 1-6 record against Top 10

opponents. “It’s definitely up there.” The defense made sure it stood up, stuffing Mike Davis on fourth-and-goal from inside the 1. Murray and the offense took it

from there, running off the remaining 8:28. “That was by far my favorite part of the game,” coach Mark Richt said of the final possession. Davis led the Gamecocks (1-1, 0-1) with 149 yards rushing. Connor Shaw passed for 228 yards and two touchdowns, ran for 75 yards, but also lost a crucial fumble in the third quarter in Georgia territory. That said, this loss was on the Clowney and the defense. They simply couldn’t stop Murray. “Aaron played a pretty good game,” said Clowney, who had a lackluster opening game and was largely shut down again, held to three tackles and one sack. “He threw it quick and ran it away from me the whole game.” Georgia snapped a three-year losing streak against the Gamecocks, seizing control of the SEC East though South Carolina still has a chance to get back in the race, thanks to a more favorable schedule. In fact, the Bulldogs won the division the last two years despite losing to their neighboring rival. Todd Gurley had another huge day for the Bulldogs on the ground, rushing for 136 yards on 30 bruising carries and scoring two touchdowns. His first came on a 2-yard run in a wild first half, which ended with the teams tied at 24.

Georgia tailback Todd Gurley runs past North Texas linebacker Zach Orr for a first down Sept. 21 at Sanford Stadium in Athens. After struggling with the Mean Green for a half, the Bulldogs turned it on in the second half and defeated North Texas 45-21.

ATHENS — Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No. 9 Georgia to a 45-21 victory over pesky North Texas. Murray overcame an early interception in the end zone, hooking up with freshman Reggie Davis on a 98-yard TD — the longest pass play in school history. Arthur Lynch and Chris Conley also had touchdown catches for the Bulldogs (2-1). The Mean Green (2-2) came in as a 33point underdog, but big plays on special teams helped make a game of it. Brelan Chancellor returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and Zac Whitfield fell on a blocked punt in the end zone early in the second half to stunningly tie the game at 21. Murray made sure the Bulldogs avoided the upset. He scored on a 1-yard sneak and went to Conley on a 4-yard TD. Georgia outgained North Texas by a staggering margin in total yards, 641-245, the fourth-most in school history. But the Bulldogs didn’t put it away until the fourth quarter. Murray became only the second Southeastern Conference quarterback with 100 career scoring passes. The three TDs pushed his total to 102, trailing only 1996 Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel of Florida (114). Darnell Smith had North Texas’ only nonspecial teams score, hauling in a 20-yard pass from Derek Thompson. But the Mean

Green certainly didn’t embarrass themselves on a rainy day between the hedges, collecting a hefty payout ($975,000) and ruining any hopes Georgia had to limit the playing time of its starters before an SEC showdown with No. 6 LSU. Murray got off to a rough start, trying to force a pass into heavy coverage on secondand-goal from the North Texas 3. It was picked off by linebacker Will Wright. Murray bounced back on the next possession. He hooked up with Jay Rome on a 27-yard pass, North Texas cornerback James Jones was called for interference, and Todd Gurley powered over from the 12 yards out to give Georgia a 7-0 lead. The Bulldogs made it 14-0 on the first play of the second quarter from their own 2-yard line. Davis beat his man, hauled in the pass, and pulled away from the defense to beat the previous school record of 93 yards, which had been done three times — including the famous touchdown pass from Buck Belue to Lindsay Scott against Florida during the 1980 national championship season. The teams traded quick scores — Smith’s TD was matched by Murray’s 16-yarder to Lynch — before Chancellor stunned the crowd on the ensuing kickoff. One of the nation’s top returners, Chancellor found a hole through a wall of blockers, easily slipped past kicker Marshall Morgan, and took off right down the middle of the field for a touchdown that cut Georgia’s lead to 21-14.

Bulldogs wrap up 'gauntlet' Associated Press

ATHENS — Two out of three ain’t bad. Georgia is certainly not complaining. Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, including a 25-yarder to Justin ScottWesley with 1:47 remaining, and the No. 9 Bulldogs rallied to beat No. 6 LSU 44-41 in a thrilling game between Southeastern Conference powerhouses Saturday. The Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0 SEC) completed their opening-month run through a gauntlet of top teams with a victory that propelled them back into the thick of the national championship race. “We’ve played some hard teams,” ScottWesley said. “It just shows we’re a great team. We can handle anything anybody throws at us.” Georgia was only the fourth team since the BCS began in 1998 to face three top 10

teams in the first four games of a season. The Bulldogs opened with a 38-35 nonconference loss to Clemson, but came back to beat South Carolina 41-30 and now the Tigers. “We’ve grown up a lot this past month,” Murray said. “I think everyone in the nation knows what Georgia football is about now. We’re a tough group of guys. We’re fighters.”

About 10 minutes after the game, the team ran back on the field to celebrate with their fans along the famed hedges at Sanford Stadium. Coach Mark Richt gave his wife a big kiss and hug. “I’m just honored to be a part of something like that,” Richt said. Now, the Bulldogs are well-positioned to make a run for their third straight SEC East

title and trip to the conference championship game. “We’re definitely happy,” Murray said. “If had to lose one of these games, obviously Clemson was the one, just because they’re in the ACC. Not saying we wanted to lose. Don’t get me wrong. But this is huge.” LSU (4-1, 1-1) got a career-best 372 yards passing from former Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger in his return to Athens, and the Tigers went ahead 41-37 on Jeremy Hill’s 8-yard touchdown run with 4:14 to go. But that was plenty of time for Murray and the high-powered Bulldogs on a day when neither defense had much success. He completed three straight passes to quickly move the Bulldogs into LSU territory, and freshman J.J. Green broke off an 18-yard run to the Tigers’ 25. Then it was Scott-Wesley, breaking wide open behind the secondary to haul in a pass and tiptoe just inside the pylon for the winning score. “We have a long road ahead of us to get back to the top,” Mettenberger said. “We have to win out.” Murray ran for Georgia’s other touchdown on a sneak and finished with 298 yards passing. “We all know your quarterback has to play well to win a game like this,” Richt said.

Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley scores a 25-yard go-ahead touchdown from quarterback Aaron Murray during the win over LSU.

“Aaron was phenomenal, gutsy, tremendous.” Murray and Mettenberger were in the same recruiting class at Georgia, contending for the starting job in the spring of 2010. Mettenberger, a native of nearby Watkinsville, grew up cheering for the Bulldogs and dreaming of the day he could wear the red and black. But his actions off the field cost him his chance. Mettenberger pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual battery charges after an incident in a bar and was kicked off the team. But his ties to Georgia run deep — most notably, his mother, Tammy, still works in football operations for the Bulldogs. Richt gave her the week off because of all the attention surrounding her son. The former teammates did all that could be expected of them. Mettenberger had three touchdowns on 23-of-37 passing, continually burning the Bulldogs on third down. He completed a 25yard pass on Odell Beckham on third-and-22 to improbably extend an LSU drive that led to Hill’s go-ahead touchdown. But Murray delivered the final blow. “They are both great players,” Richt said. “It was incredible how well they played.” Georgia did plenty of damage on the ground in the first half, but star running back

Todd Gurley sustained an apparent left ankle injury on a 25-yard run. He didn’t return, watching the second half while wearing a windbreaker and walking boot. Richt wasn’t sure how long he’ll be out. The Bulldogs weren’t nearly as effective on the ground with Keith Marshall handling the load, but Murray and his receivers took up the slack. Chris Conley had five catches for 112 yards and a touchdown. Michael Bennett hauled in a pair of scoring passes. Georgia finished with 494 yards, though the bulk of those came in a back-and-forth first half that ended with Georgia on top 24-17. Little-used Kadron Boone had two early touchdown catches for LSU, but Jarvis Landry turned out to be Mettenberger’s go-to receiver. The junior had 10 catches for 156 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown that tied the game at 27 late in the third quarter. Georgia’s schedule gets easier the rest of the way, with only one more regular-season game against a team currently in the Top 25 — injury-plagued Florida. LSU has a much tougher road, with games still remaining against top-ranked Alabama and No. 10 Texas A&M. “We have a good football team and we have everything in front of us,” Tiger coach Les Miles said. “When you play a quality team on the road, you can learn what needs to be corrected.”

Game 5: at TENNESSEE

Bulldogs eke out win in OT Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Georgia’s national title hopes kept shrinking as its injury list kept growing. Then Aaron Murray and Marshall Morgan came to the rescue and saved the sixth-ranked Bulldogs’ championship aspirations. Morgan kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime after Murray threw a game-tying touchdown pass with 5 seconds remaining in regulation as Georgia overcame a flurry of injuries in a 34-31 victory at Tennessee. “I hit it and I knew it was good,” Morgan said. “I was just thinking — I don’t know — I just kind of lay down because I saw people running at me and my knee’s already (been) hurting all game.”

Georgia's Chris Conley makes a touchdown catch in front of Tennessee's Justin Coleman in the first half of their game Oct. 5 in Knoxville, Tenn.

Morgan wasn’t the only Bulldog with an aching knee. Georgia running back Keith Marshall injured his right knee in the first quarter and was carted into the locker room, the first sign this day might not go as

planned for the Bulldogs. They found a way to win anyhow. Georgia (4-1, 3-0 SEC) forced overtime on Murray’s 2-yard touchdown pass to Rantavious Wooten to make it 31-all. Geor-

gia coach Mark Richt said the play actually was designed as a fade to the outside, but Murray instead found Wooten open across the middle. Rajion Neal’s 7-yard run had put Tennessee (3-3, 0-2) ahead 31-24 with 1:54 left after Justin Worley found A.J. Branisel for a 28-yard completion on fourth-and-1 from the Georgia 35. Tennessee’s Alton “Pig” Howard capped the first overtime possession by losing control of the ball as he dove toward the front right corner of the end zone. Howard’s play was initially ruled a 7-yard touchdown, but replays showed he fumbled prior to crossing the goal line, turning the potential score into a turnover and touchback. “Alton gave us a spark today,” Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. “He was just trying to make a play.” Murray went 19 of 35 for 196 yards with three touchdowns and became the Southeastern Conference’s all-time leader in career yards passing. Murray has thrown for 11,625 yards to break the record held by David Greene, who threw for 11,528 yards for Georgia from 2001-04. Neal ran for 148 yards for Tennessee (3-3, 0-2), which has lost 19 straight games against ranked opponents.


Dogs stumble at home Associated Press

ATHENS— Gary Pinkel said No. 25 Missouri won more than a second straight SEC road game when it upset No. 7 Georgia. “I just think we earned a little more respect,” Pinkel said. “The respect level just went up a couple notches.” Receiver Bud Sasser threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to L’Damian Washington in the fourth quarter after quarterback James Franklin left with a shoulder injury and Missouri held off Georgia’s comeback attempt to beat the short-handed Bulldogs 41-26. Pinkel said Franklin separated his right shoulder and expects the quarterback to miss at least one week. Freshman Maty Mauk, who replaced Franklin in the fourth quarter, could start when Missouri (6-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) plays No. 17 Florida next week. Missouri led by 18 points in the first half before Georgia (4-2, 3-1) cut the lead to 2826 in the fourth quarter. The Tigers answered the challenge with two late touchdowns, despite losing Franklin. Missouri’s first road win over a top 10 team since 1981 helped continue the Tigers’ recovery from a 5-7 finish in 2012, their first

in season in the SEC. The Tigers have scored 38 or more points in each of their six wins, including last week’s 51-28 win at Vanderbilt. “There is no question that one of the goals for this team is to get back to Missouri’s winning ways,” Pinkel said. “It is a big deal to them. ... They want to get back to competing for championships.” The Tigers ended Georgia’s streak of 15 straight home wins. After Franklin was taken to the locker room, Mauk threw a lateral to Sasser, who stopped and tossed a high, deep pass to the end zone for Washington. Washington, who outfought cornerback Damian Swann for the catch, had 115 yards and two touchdowns. “I came in and everybody just told me to keep calm,” Mauk said. “So I came in and got the plays to our guys. We executed well at the end. ... We scored when we needed to.” James Ponder’s interception of Aaron Murray’s pass with 4:25 remaining set up Henry Josey’s 7-yard touchdown run to end Georgia’s hopes. Murray threw two interceptions and lost one of Georgia’s two fumbles. Georgia coach Mark Richt said turnovers

helped decide the game. “It was 4-0 on the turnovers,” Richt said. “They did a really good job of securing the ball, and we didn’t. You hear coaches say it over and over, but you can’t win a game turning it over like that.” The Bulldogs had won four straight on the strength of a powerful offense, including 44-41 over LSU and 34-31 in overtime over Tennessee the last two weeks. Georgia’s wave of injuries at tailback and wide

receiver left Murray with inexperienced backups at the skill positions to keep pace against another high-scoring opponent. Georgia almost filled a bench on its sideline with injured players who wore their red game jerseys over black warm-up pants. Among them was star tailback Todd Gurley (ankle). Murray threw his second interception in the final minute. He completed 25 of 45 passes for 290 yards with three touchdowns.

Bulldogs fall at Vandy Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Georgia coach Mark Richt promised himself he wouldn’t talk about the two targeting calls that cost his 15th-ranked Bulldogs defensive end Ray Drew and a crucial fourth-down stop in the fourth quarter. His Bulldogs have bigger challenges right now. Aaron Murray became the Southeastern Conference’s career leader in total offense, but the Bulldogs stalled offensively and turned it over three times trying to protect a lead inside the final 16 minutes before losing 31-27 to Vanderbilt. “They played better than us,” Richt said. And this second straight SEC loss may have ended Georgia’s goal of returning to Atlanta as the SEC East champ. Georgia (4-3, 3-2) now is two losses behind undefeated Missouri in the East and tied with Florida going into their annual showdown Nov. 2. Richt was being criticized when Georgia lost its season opener to Clemson, and now the first loss to Vanderbilt in Nashville since 1991 won’t help. Richt said everyone wants to talk about how good things are when winning and everyone has an opinion when a team starts losing. He had a message for his team after this loss. “I just wanted to make sure everyone understood that at Georgia we stick

together,” Richt said. Murray ran for two touchdowns overall, and he passed Tim Tebow as the SEC’s leader in total offense in the second quarter. Shaq Wiggins also intercepted a pass and returned it 39 yards as Georgia went up 24-14 at halftime. The Bulldogs pushed that lead to 27-14 on a second field goal by Marshall Morgan with 6:24 left in the third. But Damian Swann fumbled an attempted fair catch of a punt with 19 seconds left in the third, which Vanderbilt used to start its comeback with 17 unanswered points. After Jerron Seymour put Vandy ahead to stay, freshman Brendan Douglas fumbled after a catch with 1:59 left, and Murray was intercepted on the final play. Vanderbilt wound up holding the ball for more than 35 minutes and outgained Georgia 337-221 in total offense. The Commodores held Murray to just 114 yards passing, the third-lowest passing performance of his career. Georgia was outgained 94-4 in total offense in the fourth quarter. “There were a lot of bang-bang plays,” Richt said. “They played a really good zone defense, they did a good job of hitting our receivers as the ball was coming. We didn’t give up a sack, but they put some pressure on us.” Adding more pain to the loss is receiver Chris Conley hurt an ankle on that play when the ball came down well short of the end zone.

Georgia season: Dogs' Road To Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ville

What Georgia needs to do for victory

Key Players

Keep Florida off the field The banged-up Bulldogs will have to piece together a strong offensive effort and control the ball and clock to beat the Gators. Whatever receivers and running backs Georgia has left will need to have solid days, and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will need a sharp game plan to allow Aaron Murray and Co. to have success.

Eliminate mistakes

J.J. Green Tailback

Todd Gurley Tailback

Jordan Jenkins Linebacker

Ray Drew Defensive End

The Dogs have shot themselves in the foot with untimely fumbles, interceptions and penalties. Those miscues have to be eliminated against a Florida team that plays outstanding defense and will look to create such. Georgia must play a "clean" game.

Do something on special teams Georgia's season is already littered with botched field goals and blocked punts, and the Dogs are among the nation's worst at both kick-return yards gained and allowed. The special teams just have to be better.

Aaron Murray, quarterback

Florida season: Gators' Road To Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ville

Key Players

What Florida needs to do for victory Win the turnover battle Plain and simple, Florida lost last year's game because of six disastrous turnovers, the most memorable being Jordan Reed's fumble into the end zone trying for the game-tying score. Florida's defense has forced a turnover in every game this season and they'll need to do that again.

Protect Tyler Murphy

Antonio Morrison Linebacker

Vernon Hargreaves III Def. Back

Loucheiz Purifoy Def. Back

Dante Fowler Jr. Def. End

In his first two starts, Murphy proved to be a very capable passer when he's not under duress. In the Gators' most recent two games, however, he was exposed when hurried. The offensive line has to give Murphy more time.

Unleash Kelvin Taylor Florida will need an answer in its running game to the return of UGA's Todd Gurley, and the freshman has been the Gators' most consistent threat in the backfield. Time to let him tote the mail.

Game 1: TOLEDO

Gators open with win Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mack Brown had tears in eyes before the game and a smile on his face after. In between, he ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and vomited on the sideline. Not a bad start for Brown or No. 10 Florida. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career day, Jeff Driskelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efficiency and a dominant defense carried the Gators to a 24-6 win over Toledo in the teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season opener Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like I was useless for the last couple of years,â&#x20AC;? said Brown, a fourth-year junior who did little his first three years in Gainesville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting an opportunity. Just took it and ran with it. It felt good, man. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really express it.â&#x20AC;? Brown ran 25 times, equally his carries from all of last season. He was making his first career start, in the lineup in place of Matt Jones. The sophomore missed the opener while recovering from a viral infection. He is expected to return next week at Miami, but Brown certainly stated his case to get some carries the rest of the season.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question,â&#x20AC;? coach Will Muschamp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more a guy plays, and the more he plays well, it gives you great confidence in putting him in the game and knowing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to play well. ... We expected him to play extremely well today.â&#x20AC;? His teammates werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad, either. Driskel completed 17 of 22 passes for 153 yards and a score, rolling out often and getting rid of the ball early. Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense, which ranked fifth in the country in 2012, looked every bit as good as last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version despite losing eight starters and its coordinator. The Gators controlled both lines of scrimmage, opening holes for Brown and keeping steady pressure on Toledoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experienced offense. It was exactly the style of play Florida has become known for under Muschamp. No flashiness. Few highlight-reel plays. But a win in the end. It was Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24th consecutive seasonopening victory, the second-longest active streak in the country. Only Nebraska (27) has a longer current run. Some thought Florida would struggle against the Rockets, who were picked to finish second in the Mid-American Confer-

enceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Division. Toledo returned nine starters on offense, four on defense, played in three consecutive bowl games and even beat a ranked team last season. But the Gators pretty much dominated from the start, wearing down Toledo in 90-

degree heat and sweltering humidity. The Rockets finished with 205 yards and were 1 of 13 on third down. Terrance Owens completed 17 of 38 passes for 155 yards, with an interception. David Fluellen ran nine times for 46 yards.

Florida season: Gators' Road To J’Ville Game 2: at MIAMI

Gators fall to ’Canes Associated Press

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Once again, Florida flopped against Miami. It just wasn’t intentional this time around. The 12th-ranked Gators dominated just about every statistical category — including turnovers, and that ultimately was what decided everything. Florida turned the ball over five times, came up empty on four redzone trips and wound up losing 21-16 to the Hurricanes in what’s widely expected to be the last time the one-time traditional rivals meet for a long, long time. “I can’t give it to Miami,” Gators offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison said. “It is on us.” Stephen Morris threw two first-quarter touchdown passes to put Miami ahead, and the onslaught of Gator mistakes ensured that the Hurricanes stayed there. The win almost certain assures that the Hurricanes — dogged for the last 26 months by a still-unresolved NCAA probe — will return to the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2010. “It’s been such a hard road,” Miami coach Al Golden said. “We’ve just been battling this thing and obviously they’re one of the teams they’ve been battling during this thing. I think you guys can figure that out. It was just a very cathartic moment. It was a great moment for our guys, all those guys that not only chose the University of Miami during this but stood there and fought.” In 1971, the Gators executed what’s forever known as the “Florida Flop,” when the defense fell to the ground and let Miami score, just so the offense could get the ball

back and allow John Reaves to break Jim Plunkett’s record for NCAA career passing yards. This one will just go down as an all-day flop. Jeff Driskel completed 22 of 33 passes for a career-best 291 yards and a late touchdown for Florida (1-1), which had gotten off to 2-0 starts in each of the previous eight seasons. But he had two interceptions, fumbled once and was stopped on a fourth-down try for another giveaway, all part of a messy effort by the Gators. “It started with me,” Driskel said. “I was careless with the ball.” Duke Johnson added a 2-yard touchdown run for a 21-9 lead with 3:29 left for Miami (2-0), which has won four straight dating back to last season, the longest such streak for the Hurricanes since 2008. The offensive numbers were ridiculously one-sided, in favor of the Gators. Florida outgained Miami 413-212, had a 22-10 edge in first downs, outran the Hurricanes 12250, enjoyed nearly a 2-to-1 edge in time of possession and held Miami to an abysmal 1-for-11 effort on third-down chances. And the Gators still lost, only blaming themselves afterward. “You cannot keep shooting yourself in the foot, especially on the road,” Florida coach Will Muschamp said. Miami had 143 yards in the first quarter, averaging 7.9 yards per play. The rest of the way: 69 yards, 2.0 per play. It was Miami’s lowest yardage total in a victory since Oct. 26, 1996, when the Hurricanes managed only 162 against then-No. 12 West Virginia.

Gators get past Volunteers

Driskel tried to get up, but then dropped back to the turf and called for trainers. He limped off the field a few minutes later, got checked on the sideline and then used crutches to get to the locker room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hurt for him and I hurt for us right now,â&#x20AC;? Muschamp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to hurt us. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a guy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won a lot of ballgames here, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointing for him right now.â&#x20AC;? It was a solid debut for Murphy, a junior whose only pass attempt came on a 2-point attempt two weeks ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was always in the back of my mind that I might never play,â&#x20AC;? Murphy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kept working hard and kept fighting and kept faith in myself and kept praying for an opportunity. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the way I wanted it, but an opportunity is an opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7-yard TD scamper in the fourth quarter made it 31-10 and sent fans scrambling for the exits. The Volunteers (2-2, 0-1) had hoped to rebound from an embarrassing, 59-14 loss at No. 2 Oregon a week ago. Instead, Tennessee and first-year coach Butch Jones left Gainesville with another double-digit setback. Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strangest decision might have been to bench Justin Worley and give redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman his first career start on the road and in front of 90,000.

Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The second Jeff Driskel started waving for help, Florida coach Will Muschamp knew it was bad. It turned out to be the worst-case scenario. Driskel broke his lower right leg Saturday in the first quarter of the 19th-ranked Gatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 31-17 victory over Tennessee, a season-ending injury that thrust seldomused backup Tyler Murphy onto the field for the most significant action of his four-year career. Murphy responded better than anyone could have realistically expected. He had a 52-yard touchdown throw to Solomon Patton, a swing pass that went the distance, and made several huge plays with his legs as Florida (2-1, 1-0 SEC) won its ninth consecutive game in the series.

Game 4: at KENTUCKY

Gators manhandle Wildcats Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Tyler Murphy’s comfort passing and running belied the fact that he was making his first career start for No. 20 Florida. Matt Jones showed that he could hold on the ball and carry it for a lot of yards. By raising their games, both players help lift the Gators after a difficult week. Jones rushed for 176 yards and a touchdown and Murphy threw for 156 yards and a score as Florida beat Kentucky 24-7 on Saturday night, its 27th straight win over the Wildcats. Murphy also rushed for a 5-yard TD for the Gators (3-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference), who lost starting quarterback Jeff Driskel and defensive tackle Dominique Easley to season-ending injuries but moved forward thanks to strong performances on

offense and defense. “It’s been a long week for us psychologically and mentally as much as anything,”

Florida coach Will Muschamp said of the injuries’ effect. “I’m very pleased with how our guys pulled together and came up here

and did what we did.” Of Murphy, the coach added that he was “just proud of his performance. He continues to improve and gain confidence in his play.” Jones, who had 28 carries, outgained Kentucky by himself while he, Murphy and Trey Burton provided all of the Gators’ touchdowns in the first half to extend the longest active winning streak over a major opponent. Florida gave Gators wide receivers coach Joker Phillips a happy return after his firing last fall as Wildcats coach. Joe Mansour’s 25-yard run on a fake field goal was the only TD for Kentucky (1-3, 0-1), which was outgained 402-173. “We had a few opportunities to make it a game and didn’t make them,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said. Despite failing to score a second-half touchdown, Florida had no problems moving the ball on Kentucky thanks to Murphy, who didn’t miss a beat in completing his first 11 passes and rushing for 36 yards, variety that the Wildcats struggled to keep up with. He threw a second-half interception, but it didn’t matter as Florida picked off Maxwell Smith in the end zone en route to another stifling performance in which the Gators’ SEC-leading defense held the Wildcats to just 48 yards rushing — seven below their average — and allowed just 1 of 8 thirddown conversions.

Gators roll over Hogs Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla.— As Florida coach Will Muschamp walked out of the postgame interview area, he turned to Solomon Patton and said, “Stand up, Solomon, or they can’t see you.” Not on this night, coach. Patton stood out. Patton turned two short receptions into touchdowns, helping the 18th-ranked Gators beat Arkansas 30-10. The 5-foot-9 senior nicknamed “Solo” was pretty close to being a one-man show in the Swamp. “He’s having a special year,” Muschamp said. Patton finished with six catches for a career-high 124 yards. He also ran for a first down. But his longest gains went the distance and were key to Florida (4-1, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) winning its ninth consecutive game in the series and 10th in a row at home. Tyler Murphy, making his first start at Florida Field, completed 16 of 22 passes for 240 yards and three scores — another efficient and effective outing from a fourth-year junior who couldn’t get on the field the last three years. “I’m getting a lot more comfortable,” Murphy said. “It feels good.” The Razorbacks (3-3, 0-2) ran the ball well early — against the league’s best defense — but fell behind on Loucheiz Purifoy’s interception return in the second quarter for a touchdown and faded from there. “Obviously disappointed,” Arkansas coach

Bret Bielema said. “It’s not a lot of fun. We had too many issues — dropped balls, a picksix, a couple missed tackles that resulted in an easy 14 points for them. Playing a ranked opponent on their home turf, you can’t do those things and expect to win.” Purifoy had a sack and forced fumble in the first quarter, extending Florida’s streak with a takeaway to 16 games. The Gators also have intercepted a pass in eight straight games. Arkansas looked sharp for a bit, gashing the Gators on the ground and taking a 7-0 lead on Jonathan Williams’ nifty, cutback run. Williams started left, slammed into defensive end Ronald Powell, bounced out of the would-be tackle and then headed the other direction. He picked up a block from quarterback Brandon Allen and pretty much walked into the end zone for a 4-yard score. But it ended up being one of the few bright spots for Arkansas, which hasn’t beaten Florida since 1982 — a decade before the Razorbacks entered the SEC. Things might be worse for the Razorbacks, too. Starting cornerback Will Hines broke a bone in his right arm and left the field on a cart, and starting center Travis Swanson reinjured a sprained knee. Florida had one minor issue: center Jon Harrison was ejected for apparently making contact with an official. Little else went wrong for the Gators. Patton surely added to his highlight reel. He got wide open on a 3rd-and-12 play with about 30 seconds to play in the first half, spun away from a defender and outran everyone else for a score that made it 17-7.

Gators upended at LSU Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La.— Desperate for a late score to keep Florida alive, Tyler Murphy dropped back, only to be enveloped in a swarm of purple and gold. First came a sack by LSU safety Jalen Mills for a loss of 12 yards to force a fourth-and-27, and then another sack and strip by linebacker Kendell Beckwith all but sealed the game. The 17th-ranked Gators came to Death Valley hoping to establish themselves as the team to beat in the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference. Instead, they left with a 17-6 loss to No. 10 LSU which exposed some problems with Florida’s pass protection. LSU “had too many free runners at the quarterback,” Florida coach Will Muschamp said after watching Murphy take four sacks and release numerous inaccurate passes under duress. “There was too much pressure. We’ve got to protect (Murphy) better.” Murphy blamed himself. “It is definitely frustrating when you have a guy (open) down field and you can’t (get the ball) to him,” Murphy said. “I really have to work on getting rid of the ball quicker.” Murphy got off to an encouraging start against LSU, connecting on a couple of high-percentage throws, showing his elusiveness when he was nearly sacked and converting four first downs. That set up Francisco Velez’s 44-yard field goal to give the Gators a 3-0 lead. The next two drives didn’t go nearly as well, amounting to minus-4 yards as LSU

forced a pair of three-and-outs, and Micah Eugene pulled down Murphy for his first sack. Meanwhile, LSU (6-1, 3-1) strung together touchdown drives of 70 and 62 yards, gashing the Gators’ highly rated defense for several passing plays covering more than 20 yards. The scores came on 1-yard TD runs by fullback J.C. Copeland and reserve freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings. Florida (4-2, 3-1) entered the game giving up averages of only 217 yards and 12.2 points per game. LSU gained 200 yards and scored 14 points in the first half. “You can call whatever defense you want to call, kids have got to get off blocks and make a play,” Muschamp said of his defense. “Our guys have got to accept that.” Florida made it a one possession game on Velez’s second field goal, a 27-yarder that cut it to 14-6 with 12:11 to go. The Tigers responded by going to Jeremy Hill, who carried four times for 45 yards — including a gain of 26 yards to the Florida 19 — to set up Colby Delahoussaye’s 31yard field goal with 7:58 left. Needing two scores, Florida started to gamble. On fourth-and-5 from the Gators 30, punter Kyle Christy converted a fake, hitting Demarcus Robinson over the middle for a 14-yard gain. Murphy then converted a fourth-and-9 with a 15-yard pass to Ahmad Fulwood at the LSU 20. That’s when the Tigers put the game out of reach with consecutive sacks. “We can win all different types of games,” Hill said. “We can win shootouts or we can win tough, physical ground it out kind of games.”

Florida season: Gators' Road To J’Ville

Game 7: at MISSOURI

Gators fall hard at Mizzou Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Florida has struggled to score all season, but the No. 22 Gators experienced problems on both sides of the ball at No. 14 Missouri. The team allowed 500 yards in a 36-17 loss, the most under coach Will Muschamp since he arrived in 2011. The Gators (4-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) only gained 151 yards offensively as the Tigers (7-0, 3-0) bullied them at the line of scrimmage, sacking quarterback Tyler Murphy six times and flushing him out of the pocket throughout the game. Florida now has more losses than all of last year, when it went 11-2 overall and 7-1 in the SEC. “This is not a very good football team, and certainly not today,” Muschamp said. “I am pretty disappointed that we have not made more positive strides offensively at this point

of the season.” Maty Mauk threw for 295 yards in his first career start and Andrew Baggett converted

five field goals for Missouri, which opened a two-game lead in the SEC East Division. With James Franklin watching on the

sideline, Mauk put any doubts to rest about whether he was ready on the first play of the game with a 41-yard pass to L’Damian Washington and then a 20-yard toss to Bud Sasser for a 7-0 lead just 22 seconds in. Missouri became the first conference opponent in 14 games to score at least 21 points on the Gators. It knocked off its second consecutive ranked opponent for the first time since 1973 and will face No. 11 South Carolina next week at home. The Gamecocks lost at Tennessee 23-21 on Saturday. “This team is resilient, coming back from where we were last year,” Washington said. “I told Coach Pinkel, ‘We’ve got to stop talking bowl games around here. Let’s talk BCS, let’s talk national championships.”’ Mauk entered the game having only thrown six passes this season, but three of those came in the final quarter of a 41-26 win at Georgia last week after Franklin suffered a shoulder injury that will keep him out at least two more games. Mauk completed 18 of 36 passes Saturday, including three for 37 yards or more down the sideline. The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt freshman capped the scoring with 6:30 remaining on a 17-yard scramble, prompting the 67,124 in attendance to perform the “Gator Chomp.” “Backup quarterback?” center Evan Boehm asked. “Maty would be starting anywhere else.”
