    3-2 Georgia knew they had to play well to come out of the next few weeks above .500, and they showed they were ready to take on the first part of the challenge in Week 6.

    The game started slow, with the teams trading a couple possessions before the Bulldogs would finally put on a drive. True freshman Jeff Jones would carry most of the load on the drive, following the big hogs in front of him. After stalling inside Wolverine Territory, C.J. Davis would perfectly execute a well designed play. Davis would drop back, pump fake right to the flats, and then hit Jones on a wheel route as time in the 1st quarter expired for the 29 yard TD pass. Georgia would go into the 2nd quarter up 7-0.

    Michigan would then get the ball and quickly would have to punt the ball away. On one of the next plays, C.J. Davis would hit All-American WR Justin Scott Wesley on a 10 yard out, and Scott would make a guy miss and outrun the rest of the defense for a 83 yard touchdown to go up 14-0. Both teams would have long drives, especially Michgan, when Josh Brady would lead his offense down to the redzone, but sophomore Brian Dunn would intercept a floater in the endzone, and the drive would end. Georgia would go into half up 14-0.

    The start of the 2nd half was a team's worst nightmare. Brady tossed the ball to Justice Hayes on the play, and before he could even try to make a move, Georgia surrounded him and knocked the ball loose. LE Danny Wolfe would pick the ball up and rumble into the endzone to extend the Georgia lead.

    The game then turned. Michigan completely dominated, and Josh Brady led two back to back perfect drives capped off with a 4 yard pass, and a Daniel East 1 yard plunge respectively. It looked as if Michigan was going to come back and win this game, but Jeff Jones had another big play for Georgia. He took a sweep 62 yards to the right, shook a tackle, and scored on the play. Georgia would lead 28-14.

    Michigan then drove down the field yet again. Brady, Tom's nephew, led another masterful drive in just over two minutes. Michigan would finish the drive with a 2 yard rush to make the game 21-28. Michigan chose to kick the ball deep, and Jeff Jones would run out the remainder of the clock and win 28-21

    Great game Twister18 . Michigan dominated the T.O.P, allowing Georgia only 12 minutes of possession. If it wasn't for 4 big plays, Michigan would have won this game. A couple of bad breaks, dropped interceptions, and missed tackles kept the Wolverines from pulling this one out.

    Gg makin. I also want commend his sportsmanship as I was desperately trying to force a punt and Jones bust through the middle and had clear sailing ahead but he dove down and ran the clock out rather than stat pad or run up the score. Very classy dude!

    Guys just remember that when voting for freshman of the year.
