    Georgia Bombs the Badgers 70-14

    There were small signs that the sliders were effective:

    *other than Mike Anderson who is an out of this world back.. Our rushing yards per carry were quite low. In fact anderson fumbled twice (lost one), one leading to Wisconsin's first points. i'm convinced if it wasn't for that this was as shutout. Scales fumbled out of bounds as well.

    *yes we scored 70, but without the 4-6 all the on purpose field goal misses :thumbsup:

    *we were forced to punt multiple times

    But the overall story was that Georgia trampled Wisconsin on their home field.

    Geremy Brown caught a long pass over the shoulder behind two defenders for the first score to get things rolling. Shortly thereafter, SS Tanner Jenkins had the easiest pick you've ever seen as the QB was hit and the ball seemed to lollipop in slow motion toward him, and nobody was within 10 yards of him as he caught the ball and sped easily to the end zone to make it 14-0.

    Wisconsin's utter futility on offense for most of the game resulted in low yardage totals for Georgia and we didn't have to do much to get our points.

    Scales threw for over 300 yards, 3 TDs, and ran for about 65 yards.

    Mike Anderson in his comeback from last season's season ending injury ran for over 100 yards and a couple scores, and also caught a screen pass that went the distance for another long score.

    Freshman WR Shawn Lee showed his speed by easily outracing the cornerback on a 69-yard bomb.

    Freshman OLB Marques Brown only made 5 tackles but seems to manhandle any blocker who comes his way. Nathan Anderson keeps improving at middle linebacker and looks awesome. Our defensive line was just o.k. on the pass rush, phenomenal against the run.

    Team looks pretty salty this year.

    Hahahah... Scales will probably have a pretty solid/efficient season but doesn't need to put up huge #s as long as Anderson is healthy. They will take stats away from each other and neither will win any awards.

    Also forgot to mention another positive sign was my completion percentage was 61%, not 80. :)

    South Carolina gets dealt with, 69-24

    WR Josh Jackson has been a surprise this year. Here he makes a nice catch on a pass thrown behind him, then
    hangs on as the linebacker gives him a good shot. This slot receiver is clearly our third option after the speedy
    Outlaw and the Mercurial Shawn Lee, but has the best hands of any player on the team.

    The only thing that didn't look good about the Bulldogs on this day was quarterback Nick Murray.
    Relieving James Scales (who went 12-22, 241 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT / 6 car, 38 yds), Murray immediately
    threw 3 interceptions in a row, leading to two easy late scores for the Gamecocks.

    "If that's what next year is going to look like, then let's make this season last," said Coach Hellisan.

    The receivers continue to drop easy passes, but the Georgia defense is so good that it just doesn't

    The first quarter scoring started with a 44-yard field goal by the Bulldogs. Later in the quarter
    Scales found Mike Anderson for a 4-yard touchdown pass, then later hooked up with Michael Outlaw
    from 43 yards out to take a 17-0 lead.

    Wesley Bryant picked off a pass and returned it 28 yards in the second quarter to make it 24-0
    before Roland tacked on another field goal after yet ANOTHER turnover. The Gamecocks kicked
    a field goal to get on the board 27-3, but Mike Anderson added a 1-yard touchdown run before
    halftime to put the Bulldogs up, 34-3.

    It was more of the same in the third quarter with a 5-yard Mike Anderson run (41-3), 30-yard
    interception return by Elliott (48-3). Following South Carolina's first touchdown on a 16-yard
    pass (48-10), Scales found Josh Jackson on a short post route and Jackson went the distance
    for an 80-yard touchdown.

    Fourth quarter scoring included a 25-yard Mike Anderson run, then we put in the backups. South
    Carolina scored two straight touchdowns thanks to Nick Murray's quarterback play before Murray
    righted himself and threw a 21-yard touchdown pass.

    Three Stars

    HB Mike Anderson: 23 car, 144 Yards, 3 TD / 2 Rec, 11 Yds, TD

    OLB Marques Brown: 9 Tackles, 4 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 Midair Deflection and collision that resulted in a
    Georgia interception and touchdown return. Hint: Don't try throwing over the top of Brown.

    FS Wesley Bryant: 8 Tackles, INT (returned for TD)

    Bulldogs continue to roll, run over Penn State 65-3

    Middle linebacker Nathan Anderson continues to shine. Here he drags down the ball carrier from behind,
    an impressive tackle that likely saved a big play.

    Everything went wrong for the Georgia Bulldogs on a rainy afternoon in Athens. They fumbled
    four times, thanks to the new sliders. Penn State defenders were JUMPING THROUGH UGA's
    to intercept the football, again thanks to the new sliders. And yet none of it mattered
    because Penn State simply sucked that bad.

    Georgia held the Nittany Lions to 216 yards of total offense and just 13 completions on 30 passes.
    Even the receptions were usually contested and/or cheesy deals where the cpu made Georgia
    players run away from the play so the catch could be made. Just one of those days.

    James Scales threw 4 touchdown passes, including two to the suddenly unstoppable Michael
    Outlaw as the Bulldogs trashed Penn State. Mike Anderson added 147 tough yards on 27 carries
    in horrible weather.

    Most impressive was the defense. One particualrly impressive play was OLB John Smith shooting
    through the line and causing a fumble. DT Jordan Watts picked it up and rumbled 41 yards for the
    score, but the game was already well in hand by then.

    Three Stars

    QB James Scales: 15-25, 277 Yds, 4 TD, 2 INT / 13 CAR, 56 YDS

    Week 5 - LSU @ Georgia

    Defense gets offensive as Georgia gets important 'W' against LSU, 41-17

    Linebacker "Marvelous" Marques Brown dwarfs the tight end as he moves in for the interception.

    In a game where both offenses struggled to move the ball - resulting in 444 yards of total offense
    between the two - Georgia's defense stepped to the plate and hit a home run by picking off five
    passes and returning three of them for touchdowns.

    Jake Rogers took the opening kickoff and went 95 yards for a touchdown as Georgia took a 7-0
    lead. Later in the first quarter, Scales found wideout Shawn Lee from 9 yards out to take a 14-0
    lead. LSU fought back by scoring a touchdwon to open the second quarter, on a 2-yard run by
    S. Patterson. LSU then forced a punt, but the game started to slip away when Wesley Bryant
    stepped in front of a pass and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown and a 21-7 lead. LSU milked
    the clock down and kicked a field goal to go into halftime still in the game, 21-10.

    Wesley Bryant signed in season 1 after being hosted by the Dawgs when LSU was in town. He
    resumed his history against LSU by essentially putting the game in his back pocket as the third
    quarter opened. He picked off his second pass of the game (in robber coverage from the blind
    side) and returned it for his second touchdown of the day. In all Bryant earned player of the game
    honors with his 5 tackle, 2 INT, 2 TD day. He also batted away 3 other passes.

    Joe Dixon topped off the defensive explosion with another interception that was returned 41 yards
    moments later. The cornerback now has 7 defensive touchdowns in his career.

    The defensive performance overshadowed the fact that the offense did very little against LSU's
    awesome defensive squad. One could say they didn't have to, so that's why they didn't. But it was
    not a very impressive performance.

    The best thing that happened on offense was that Mike Anderson didn't get seriously injured. Oh,
    he got hurt alright, but it was only minor. Freshman Curtis Bower came in and did an adequate
    job of replacing Anderson and sopping up carries and yards.

    Can the offense bounce back against a tough Tennessee squad? We'll have to wait and see.

    Three Stars

    MLB Nathan Anderson: 7 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 sack

    FS Wesley Bryant: 5 tackles, 2 INT, 3 deflections, 2 touchdowns

    CB Jake Rogers: 5 tackles / 1 KR, 95 YDS, TD

    Week 6: #1 Tennessee @ #2 Georgia

    Fourth quarter explosion gives Dawgs a huge win against Tennessee, 38-31

    Jake Rogers returns a kickoff 108 yards. A "no, no, no!" from the coach turned into
    cheers as he dashed and darted his way through the defense.

    In recent memory, Tennessee has dominated Georgia. Some of the wins were close. One was
    a blowout. Whatever the final score, Georgia just hadn't been getting it done lately.

    The game looked like it was just about over as Tennessee took a 24-14 lead on the last play of
    the third quarter, a 12-yard touchdown pass from B. Simpson to P. Mason. Yes there was still a
    quarter to be played, but the Georgia defense was getting trampled. They were on the field just
    about all game, as Tennessee controlled time of possession 20:24 to 11:36 and it just didn't
    look like they could be stopped. Their defense was playing great too.

    That's when Jake Rogers stepped up to save the season. Fielding a kickoff 8 yards deep in the
    end zone, the cornerback decided to go for it. he caught two great blocks at the 20 and then outran
    several Vols to the left sideline. Robo-backer Tyler Perry was the last line of defense, and Rogers
    quickly ducked inside him and sprinted the remaining 50 yards to paydirt.

    Special teams played one important role in the game. Additional help came from an unlikely
    source; passes batted down at the line of scrimmage. Six foot five defensive tackle Jordan Watts
    couldn't get much of a push against Tennessee's awesome line but he batted down at least three
    passes, usually in key moments. Such as when he batted away a pass intended for David Dingle
    on third down.

    "He was our saving grace on defense today," said Coach Hellisan. "You never want to count on
    something so obscure as bat downs, but we were happy to see that happen."

    Following the Rogers touchdown, Tennessee started one of their long drives but it was thwarted
    by Watts and his long reach, and Tennessee missed a long field goal attempt that leaked to the left.

    Georgia had their only grind-it-out drive of the game after that, as Mike Anderson took over the game
    for a few minutes. Anderson ended up with his first 100-yard game against Tennessee with 104 yds
    on 17 carries. He scored from 1 yard out to give Georgia an extremely unsafe 28-24 lead with 2:54
    to play. However, on the next play from scrimmage, Brian Simpson made a bad read and threw a
    pass that Joe Dixon intercepted and took back for his third defensive touchdown of the season.
    Dixon has now returned all three of his interceptions for touchdown in the 2014 season.

    Coach Hellisan was relieved after the game.

    "It never looks good on your resume when one team consistently beats the shit out of you. They
    still beat the shit out of us overall but today we came out looking better on the scoreboard. My hat
    goes off to coach Russell as this wasn't easy."

    Three Stars

    The offensive line: Much has been made about the awesome Tennessee pass rush
    in recent weeks. These guys allowed no sacks and paved the way for a decent game on the ground for the
    Georgia Running Backs.

    DE Brent Henderson: 4 Tackles, 2 TFL, 2 Sacks. Yes, Joe Dixon intercepted a pass and
    returned it for the touchdown that put the game away. But Henderson was likely the reason it happened as
    the UT quarterback was feeling pressure from a previous sack and got rid of it a split second earlier than he
    would have liked to. In a game where our defense got knocked around pretty good, Henderson came up big

    CB Jake Rogers: 5 tackles / 2 KR, 135 Yards, 1 TD (108 yards). Rogers is making a case
    for the returner of the year award. He now has 7 KR on the season for 344 yards (49.1 yard average) and two
    HUGE touchdowns in the last two games.

    DT Jordan Watts gets up for one of his pass deflections that were a huge reason UGA won.

    4 bat downs is fugly (why isnt my oline guy punching his DT in the dick in that photo) we will work on that this week in practice, Then the kick return and a pick return put us away.

    We didnt get it done when most times we do honestly, Helli made the bigger game changing plays. When we had chances to make plays we got a pass batted and had a couple of huge drops by usual reliable recievers....

    Lousy loss, after that td to close the 3rd qtr I honestly thought we had put it on ice....Helli had other ideas!

    GG man and nice win...fucker.

    Yeah we have a lot of stuff that we've been working on in practice but sometimes against Rusty, for a couple of reasons, I don't tend to dig too deep into the playbook or bag of tricks. I don't know why.

    He wasn't totally quiet. In addition to the TD pass he had a 27-yard touchdown run on an option keeper that was a thing of beauty. Perfect blocking. Rusty had to take Anderson, and Scales outran everybody to paydirt. :D

    He kept negative plays to a minimum (one tough-luck INT on a screen pass, and no sacks) threw for a buck fifty and a TD, ran for another 50 and a TD, and generally just kept us on the straight and narrow.

    Annoying Vanderbilt gets stomped 58-28

    Halfback Mike Anderson breaks a tackle on one of many impressive carries.

    Vanderbilt is probably the most angering cpu team for me to face in this dynasty. I don't know
    why, but they always seem to get me at my worst by the time the game is over. Today it was
    cheesy fumbles... yet again. We had five fumbles, and lost all five, in an atrocious display of
    ball control. The strange thing is that it was our best player getting owned, time and time
    again. Of the Vanderbilt scoring, 21 points was directly tied to fumbles whether it was a
    return or simply scoring right after recovering one of our fumbles.

    We now have 6 fumbles lost on the season, tied for second to worst in the nation after FIU,
    which has 8. Nevertheless we beat them by 30 because they have no talent.

    It was 14-0 before the many of the crowd were settled into their seats as Mike Anderson
    scored on a 5-yard run, then on the ensuing possession "Marvelous" Marques Brown stepped
    in front of a pass and returend it 38 yards for a touchdown.

    Vandy pushed their way down the field and scored the only touchdown they really worked for
    all game to bring it to with seven points. James Scales responded by torching the secondary
    for touchdown passes of 12 and 26 yards, the first to Michael Outlaw and the second to Shawn

    In the second quarter it was more of the same, with Mike Anderson doing more and more of the
    heavy lifting. In all he had 30 carries for 257 yards and 3 touchdown, re-asserting the fact that
    he is worthy of at least being included in the Heisman discussion. Yet it was disappointing to
    see him fumble three times. At this point we're wondering what the hell is going on and are
    going to spend the next week working on the fumblitis. Anderson had three such fumbles.

    The defense did very well given the fact that we kept giving Vanderbilt the ball inside our own
    30-yard line. Negative plays were a huge problem for Vanderbilt as we tackled them in the
    backfield on 19 occasions. As usual, we didn't get many sacks. Teams seem determined
    not to allow us to get to the QB, even if it costs them interceptions. We had two interceptions
    on the day but dropped a few easy ones.

    All in all it was a game where we beat a bad team, didn't get anybody hurt, and we move on
    to the next week intact.

    Bulldogs are ready for rival Florida after thrashing of Arkansas, 66-7

    Two pictures of backup Curtis Bower plowing through the defense. He was unstoppable at the end of this game.

    Georgia got out of the blocks quickly with a touchdown on their first drive, but then sputtered
    somewhat in the first quarter. Late in the quarter James Scales threw a bad interception
    which allowed Arkansas to get on the board with a two-yard touchdown pass at the end of
    the first quarter.

    Georgia took the lead for good on the first play of the second quarter. Jake Rogers took the
    kickoff and returend it 87 yards for his third kickoff return touchdown of the season. This
    ignited the Bulldogs offense, which scored two touchdowns and kicked a field goal before

    Scales threw a pair of touchdown passes in the third quarter to put the game out of reach,
    then was benched in favor of next year's starter, Nick Murray. Murray got some valuable
    experience in the game and threw a 19-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.

    Mike Anderson was the player of the game. His 20 carry, 159-yard performance included
    three touchdowns as he averaged 7.9 yards per carry. Even more impressive was backup
    Curtis Bower. The 255-lb. bowling ball put the game on ice by averaging 8.6 yards on 11
    carries, as he shrugged off and busted through tackles on just about every one of his runs.

    Five Stars Of The Game

    HB Mike Anderson: 20 Carries, 159 Yards, 7.9 Avg, 3 TD

    WR Shawn Lee: 8 Rec, 183 Yards, 22.8 Avg, 2 TD (49 long)

    TE Geremy Brown: 9 Rec, 102 Yards, 1 TD

    SS Tanner Jenkins: 10 Tackles, INT

    FS Wesley Bryant: 7 Tackles, TFL, INT - Saved a first quarter touchdown
    with an interception in the end zone. Such a consistent player for the Bulldogs.

    Yeah I typically do not predetermine targets although reads change based on how you see the defense setting up obviously. But Brown was open every time I looked his way on the checkdowns and they were blitzing me heavy.

    On the last part of your comment... I KNOW. that's the scary part. I have to hold up my end of the bargain but this team is awesome. If we don't win it I'll have no excuses that's for sure.

    One of the big differences this year is we are protecting the passer. I'm sure that a 5-6 sack game could be just around the corner but so far we've allowed only 9 to our starter in 7 games. If we kept up that pace it would be 18 for the season and he's never been sacked less than like 35 times, obviously a huge improvement.

    World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party - Week 9

    Dawgs double up Gators in World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, 41-20

    Freshman WR Shawn Lee makes a grab en-route to a 66-yard TD.

    Georgia's playmakers came through big time in a hard-hitting game that could probably
    have gone either way with a couple of inches difference on some of the plays. The game
    featured a pair of backs that are in the Heisman discussion, and both performed as
    expected as each had over 100 yards and 2 touchdowns.

    Florida won the toss and elected to kick. Georgia pounced with a pair of big plays on a
    7-play drive that resulted in a touchdown. On the second play from scrimmage Mike
    Anderson broke off a 28-yard gain, his longest of the game. A few plays later James
    Scales dropped back and found freshman wide receiver Shawn Lee all alone against the
    Gators' cover 2 scheme. It appeared to be an easy touchdown, but Scales took a huge
    shot and still delivered a perfect pass. One millisecond later and that's probably a big
    play the other way.

    The same could be said of the Georgia's second touchdown. After Florida drove down and
    scored with relative ease to tie the game, Scales noticed an an all-out blitz in the works.
    Scales audibled the speedster Lee deep and once again barely got off the pass. Lee
    outran everybody to the ball and galloped 66 yards for a 14-7 lead.

    The first of two Florida turnovers occurred on the next drive as Massey went up the middle into
    a crowd and free safety Wesley Bryant almost knocked him out. The ball squirted loose and
    freshman cornerback Eric Cole came away with the ball.

    Following a 5-yard touchdown run by Anderson that made it 21-7, Massey got back in control
    with a beautiful 45-yard touchdown run. Beautiful blocking got Massey loose and he paid
    Bryant back by eluding him in the open field. It was 21-14.

    Joe Roland hit a 21-yard field goal after a Georgia drive stalled deep in Florida territory which
    put the Bulldogs up 24-14. It was then that Bryant struck again. Joe Vogel completed a mid-
    range pass to the tight end, who turned it up field but found the shoulder of Bryant lodged in
    back of his mouth.

    "He can flick that shoulder and turn your whole world upside down," coach Hellisan crowed
    after the game." The fumble was recovered by outside linebacker John Smith.

    Before halftime James Scales frustrated the Florida defense with a 13-yard touchdown run.
    Florida called a QB contain, had both defensive ends waiting to pounce and the linebacker in
    a spy. Scales stood in the pocket for about 8 seconds and couldn't find anybody open. As
    he moved to try to get a couple of yards, MLB Stegall stumbled and Scales scampered in
    to make it 31-14.

    Georgia put the game away early in the third quarter when Florida couldn't score after taking
    the ball first in the second half, and Mike Anderson added his second touchdown of the game
    to make it 38-14.

    Five Stars Of The Game

    HB Mike Anderson: 27 Carries, 139 Yards, 5.1 Avg, 2 TD - There weren't
    too many big plays to be had against an awesome defense but he kept the chains moving

    WR Shawn Lee: 6 Rec, 166 Yards, 2 TD, 66 Long - This kid is a big-play machine

    QB James Scales: 11-13, 243 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT, 1 Rushing TD - the plan was
    to pound it with Anderson, but if Scales didn't make some big throws under pressure the game would
    have been up for grabs.

    DE Brent Henderson: 5 Tackles, 2 Sacks - The Georgia defense is starting to put
    more pressure on the QB. Henderson had 2 sacks against Tenn as well.

    FS Wesley Bryant:9 Tackles, 2 FF - Both fumbles were recovered by the Dawgs

    Defense steps up to shut down the Wildcats, 49-0

    It was pick city for the Dawgs in this one. OLB John Smith (left) and CB Eric Cole (right) got theirs

    Seventeen tackles for loss, five sacks, and five turnovers equated to a shutout as Georgia's
    defense ran the ragged Kentucky offense off the field time and time again.

    The Bulldogs worked on tuning up their passing game and defense in anticipation of a
    very tough game against Auburn next week. James Scales passed for 360 yards and five
    touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions which is abnormal for him. Mike Anderson
    ran for 164 yards and a touchdown, and also caught a touchdown pass. Four different
    players were on the receiving end of Scales' touchdown passes.

    But as the score would indicate, the real story on the day was defense. After Georgia worked
    their way down the field and scored a touchdown on an an 8-yard pass from Scales to
    Devon Kane, Wesley Bryant intercepted a pass deep downfield and returned it 84 yards to
    put UGA up, 14-0.

    Outside linebacker John Smith then intercepted the first of two passes on the day. He was
    the player of the game, filling up the stat sheet like a true pro. Tackles, tackles for loss,
    sacks, and interceptions were all part of the fun for Smith.

    Smith's interception set up a 15-yard touchdown pass from Scales to freshman WR Shawn
    Lee. Lee made a beautiful catch in the back of the end zone that will be submitted for plays
    of the month consideration.

    Georgia then picked off another pass - this time by CB Eric Cole -and marched down for a
    touchdown that put them up 28-0. In the second quarter things settled down as the Bulldogs
    scored just one touchdown.

    The starters remained in the game longer than usual as the offense began to struggle and
    we needed to figure out why. Scales threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Michael Outlaw
    in the third quarter, and Mike Anderson ran for a short touchdown later in the quarter.

    Georgia defense disrupts Auburn, 34-7

    The ball comes loose as middle linebacker Louis Lee turned the game with this forced fumble that was returned for a score

    Georgia's offense did almost nothing yet won going away in the eagerly awaited 2014 version
    of the "Oldest Rivalry in the South."

    The game plan for the Bulldogs was to move the ball early via the run and quick passing game
    and... on defense - hit William Hamilton. Hamilton, also known as the Wetumpka Wizard, has
    been phenomenal in his second season, but the Bulldogs thought if they could get a shot on
    him he might fumble the football.

    After Georgia took a 3-0 lead on the second possession of the game (following an Auburn punt)
    Auburn drove back down the field. Hamilton dropped back and found nobody, and decided to
    scramble. That's when Lee stepped up to decleat the sophomore and jarred the ball loose.
    Wesley Bryant, Johnny-on-the-spot, picked up the ball and went 93 yards.

    Auburn fought to get the momentum back with a nice drive that resulted in a five yard run by HB
    Clint Harris. But the Bulldogs snatched the momentum right back with an 89-yard kickoff return
    touchdown by Jake Rogers. It was the fourth kickoff returned by Rogers for a touchdown this
    season, and three have been against user teams.

    Georgia forced another punt and went into halftime with a 24-7 lead after driving down for a
    1-yard touchdown run by Mike Anderson.

    James Scales only threw two passes in the second half as the Bulldogs went into grind-the-clock
    mode. The Georgia defense just kept playing better and better as the game progressed. And
    Hamilton, who remained composed early, eventually fell apart, throwing three second half
    interceptions including two to strong safety Tanner Jenkins in the fourth quarter.

    "Today was Tanner's coming out party," said Coach Hellisan. "That kid is going to be a force
    for the next few years and it was exciting to see him play like he did today."

    Georgia wins an ugly one against UNC, remains undefeated, 24-17

    John Smith's interception and subsequent return probably won the game for the Bulldogs on a day where the offense
    was a non-factor

    A matchup of the two remaining unbeaten teams in college football went down to the wire. The
    Georgia Bulldogs had their worst offensive game of the season as UNC succeeded in turning
    this game into a battle of attrition. In other words this was an ugly, ugly game. It might have been
    the worst game of senior quarterback Jeff Scales' entire career.

    Georgia turned the ball over three times and also got away with a couple of fumbles. North
    Carolina wasn't so fortunate, as it seemed whenever they fumbled the ball Georgia fell on it. As a
    result, the Tarheels had 5 turnovers on the game. The big one was when outside linebacker John
    Smith jumped a pass intended for halfback Marcus Kerr and returned it for a touchdown that put
    Georgia up, 21-10 on a drive where UNC could have taken the lead.

    Georgia's first points were scored at the end of the first quarter. The defenses dominated the
    quarter for the most part, then the Bulldogs called a screen pass at the perfect moment. Curtis
    Bower, who was in the game because Mike Anderson got hurt (surprise!) took the pass and went
    24 yards to put UGA on top, 7-0.

    North Carolina tied it on a 35-yard touchdown pass. CB Eric Cole was going to be able to compete
    for the ball in the air, but user control or lack thereof did him in. Georgia drove down several failed
    drives later and punched it in from a yard out to take a 14-7 lead. UNC kicked a field goal to go into
    the half down 14-10, and had the ball first to start the second half.

    Five Stars Of The Game

    OLB John Smith: 12 Tackles, 1 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 INT, returned 73 yards for TD

    OLB Marques Brown:6 Tackles, INT (looked like a sure-fire TD but his height causes problems)

    DE Mike Smith: 6 Tackles, 3 TFL, 2 Sacks, 2 FF

    SS Tanner Jenkins: 10 Tackles, 2 TFL, 1 FR

    FS Wesley Bryant:9 Tackles - It wasn't a great statistical day but he made a great stop on 4th down and made tackles
    in space that would have possibly resulted in touchdowns.
