Alabama hangs on, downs #3 Georgia Alabama 31 @ Georgia 30 It was another wet and wild one in the SEC. This one took 2 tries. 1st game disconnected in the 1st quarter. Both teams were just about satistically equal in the game. Alabama would get their yards a little bit at a time and Georgia would get big chunks at a time but when you added them up they were just about equal in yardage and on the scoreboard. Both teams played well but there were a few plays that made the difference. On the first drive of the game Georgia was stopped on a 4th and 2 deep in Alabama territory. They elected to pass and Scales was hurried and tossed up an uncatchable ball. Towards the end of the half Georgia was able to carve up the Alabama defense to take a 7 point lead into half time. Alabama answered on its first drive of the second half to tie the game. The scoring blow was a pass to the TE QB McCarron was hit the ball hung in the air both the Georgia defender and Brandon Keyes jostled for position and Keyes came down and walked into the endzone. On Georgia's following drive Scales made a great a read feeling the middle blitz and broke his drop back and sprinted just around the right and strait up field then he went into Bo Jackson mode and took OLB 6' 6" Claude Robinson head on (99 hit power), big collison, big fumble Alabama ball. The Tide worked their way in from the Georgia 40 take a touchdown lead. The Bulldogs were not done they battled for a FG of their own cutting the lead to 4 24-20. Then scored a tochdown in the 4th to regain the lead 27-24. Not to be outdone Alabama would regroup and jump on the back of HB Trent Richardson and drive down the field to regain the lead 31-27. There was plenty of time left when Richardson scored 3:32 . Georgia moved the ball down the field but faced a decesion on 4th and 7 on the Bama 14. Coach Hellisan suprised everyone and kicked the FG putting the game in the defense's hands. Armed with 3 time outs the Dawgs forced a 3rd and 6 but Alabama completed a 16 yard pass over the middle to Keyes to seal the deal. Good Game Helli.
