The Bulldogs dominated play on both sides of the football, outgaining the
hometown Rebels, 475-183 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Murray managed the offense well, completing 17-of-26 passes, for 268 yards and

Despite playing in a hostile SEC environment in Oxford, Georgia got off to a
good start. The Bulldogs got on the scoreboard first, with a 36-yard field
goal from Blair Walsh, capping off an 11-play, 61-yard drive. Murray added a
one-yard TD run with just over a minute to play in the first quarter, and a
two-yard TD pass to Orson Charles at the six-minute mark of the second quarter
to give Georgia a 17-0 lead.

later, as the Rebels got on the scoreboard, with a 38-yard TD pass from
Mackey to Donte Moncrief.
A wild finish to the first half, had the two teams trade touchdowns. Murray
threw his second TD pass of the half, this one a 35-yarder to Aron White with
2:38 remaining in the frame, giving Georgia a 24-7 lead. Ole Miss countered
with an 81-yard punt return for a score on a reverse from Jeff Scott and
Nickolas Brassell. A botched snap on the extra point, resulted in a miss,
leaving the score 24-13 in favor of Georgia at the half.
There was very little scoring after the break, as a scoreless third quarter
gave way to a mere three points in the fourth. Walsh made it 27-13 with just
over four minutes to play in the game to finish off the scoring.

31-12-1 all-time against Ole Miss. This was the first meeting since 2007.
