Georgia 45, North Texas 21
Without the perspective of watching the entire game, Georgia’s 45-21 victory over North Texas on Saturday hardly will raise an eyebrow in the national conscious. But those who endured all 60 minutes of the rain-drenched contest know there was a lot of drama involved.
The No. 9-ranked Bulldogs (2-1, 1-0 SEC) found themselves in a war against their expensive visitors from Conference USA. The Mean Green (2-2) — who received $975,000 from Georgia for what was supposed to a stress-free win — used a pair of special-teams play to tie the score at 21-21 early in the third quarter.
