    Georgia came into their big game with MSU ranked #1, and seemingly on the inside track to the National Championship. The only thing though, was that the #4 Bulldogs from Mississippi State stood in their way.

    The game started with State receiving the kickoff, and Keith Thompson leading them right down the field with no resistance. MSU used the zone read to perfection, as Thompson was able to pull from the mesh and get 7-10 yards consistently, or let Derrick Milton plunge through the hole and pick up the yards. The drive left the defense helpless, and Milton carried it in from 40 yards out and Mississippi quickly went up 7-0.

    Georgia responded quickly though, as Walter Robinson took the kickoff back 98 yards to the 2 yard line, where Jeff Jones rumbled in from there to tie the game back up at 7.

    Virtually nothing happened in the rest of the 1st half, as teams drove, but could not get in field goal position, and the teams just traded punts until halftime. The score would be 7-7 at half.

    Georgia wasted no time in quickly breaking that tie coming out of half. Just a minute in, C.J. Davis saw one-on-one to the outside, and checked to a fly pattern for Sanford Seay, who beat his man and caught the rainbow for a 59 yard pass to help the bulldogs go up 7. Miss. State would respond though, proving they would no go away by driving down led by Milton, and scoring a field goal to make the score 14-10, which it stayed until the 4th quarter.

    In the 4th quarter, Georgia put together its only real drive of the game, as Jeff Jones and Richard Bonds were able to a get a bit on the ground, and Davis through the air. Georgia got down to the 11 yard line before being stopped on 3rd down. So Georgia set up for a 28 yard field goal. SR QB Will Oliver pulled the ball from the hold on the play though, and hit TE Jon Butler for the touchdown on the fake FG. 21-10 Georgia.

    Miss. State answered though, with a very long drive, as Thompson carved up the defense, and finally hit A.J. Smith from 22 yards out to make the game 21-16. State tried the onside kick, but failed, and Georgia was able to milk the clock and preserve the win 21-16.

    GG smlVICTORIES53 , you played great defense. I only had 1 true drive throughout the entire game. You ran that zone read very well. Hope to play you again soon.

    Georgia appears to be on a crash course with Hellisan 's Ole Miss Rebels, in the SEC Championship. Last time these two played, Ole Miss smacked Georgia. Should be a fun one.

    Nice game report mang.

    I still have to face cpu LSU and then Miss. State, so if I lose to Miss. State I think they would get the rematch.
