This was a surprise to no one, but the Georgia Bulldogs dominated the Georgia Southern Eagles, 45-14, at Sanford Stadium on Saturday.
It was a game that started shaky for the Bulldogs, but once they got their feet under them, the Eagles were no match for the SEC East Champions.
In a game like this, there's always things to take away from this game—good or bad—and the Bulldogs will learn from what they did wrong as well as what they did right and be a better team next week.
Here's 10 things we learned about the Bulldogs in their win against Georgia Southern.
It was not a huge day for Todd Gurley, but he was able to run effectively, which kept the Georgia Southern defense honest.
Gurley rushed for 68 yards on 15 carries and one touchdown. Those are not bad numbers considering the Eagles made sure Gurley was not going to beat them.
But the freshman running back had some big runs, which led to Murray having some big pass plays.
Georgia Southern does not have a secondary at the same level as the majority of FBS schools.
As a result, Murray was able to throw for 330 yards and four touchdowns and made it look easy.
Next week, the Bulldogs face Georgia Tech, who have serious issues in the defensive backfield. So just like he did against Kentucky, Ole Miss, Auburn and the Eagles, Murray should have a huge day throwing the ball.
With Marlon Brown and Michael Bennett out for the rest of the season, the Bulldogs needed a receiver or two to take their places.
Chris Conley, who has been somewhat quiet this season, came up big for the Bulldogs on Saturday, recording four catches for 76 yards and two touchdowns.
He came on strong late last year, but it has been a different story this year because of the depth at the receiver position.
But now he has a chance to prove himself, and he was able to do that today.
Arthur Lynch is known for his blocking, but is starting to come around as a receiver.
Lynch has three catches for 68 yards and is starting to become that big target Murray needs when they are in a third-down situation.
Lynch could be the team's most improved player because he's starting to become more comfortable as a balanced tight end.
Because the Bulldogs were able to pull away in the second half, the reserves came into the game and backup quarterback Parker Welch was able to throw his first touchdown pass in his college career.
He does not have the same moxie as Murray and he may not be as athletic as Christian LeMay. But Welch has been around the program for a while and he's not going to make any mistakes.
Christian Robinson got the start at inside linebacker and did not disappoint.
The senior notched nine tackles, two of them for loss, and was always around the football.
Robinson played well against Auburn and had a big night against the Eagles. With Georgia Tech next week and the Bulldogs honoring the seniors, Robinson should go off against the Yellow Jackets.
It was another day at the office for Alec Ogletree as he tallied 12 tackles and one tackle for loss. Ogletree now has eight games in his career with at least 10 tackles, including six this season, and he's only played in seven games.
He had no issues with the Georgia Southern's triple-option offense, and because Georgia Tech runs the same type of offense, he should have another 10-tackle performance next week.
John Jenkins and Kwame Geathers had strong outings against the Eagles as they recorded a combined eight tackles.
But Garrison Smith was virtually unblockable as he came up with seven tackles and one tackle for loss.
Smith has been playing lights out since Abry Jones went down, and he will have to continue to play that way if the defense is going to keep playing at a high level.
With the win against the Eagles, the Bulldogs have won their 10th game of the year, which makes it the 20th time in school history the Bulldogs have posted 10 wins in a year. It also marks the first back-to-back 10-win seasons for them since 2007-08.
The Bulldogs may not have been winning national titles like Alabama, but under Mark Richt they have been winning on a consistent basis. That has to mean something, doesn't it?
Could the 2012 Georgia Bulldogs have the best offense in school history?
They are making a strong case because they have scored 56 touchdowns, which is now a school record.
The old record was set in 1942 when UGA scored 54.
The offense features a talented group of players that can light up the scoreboard. But I think it may have to accomplish more before it can be considered the best offense in Georgia history.
