That's it. The Bulldogs have come away with the win, and it was a huge one. Thank you so much for following along, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the college football action.
Gurley gets the first-down run on fourth down, and Georgia will run out the clock. Very well played game by the Bulldogs.
For those who think Murray can't play in the big games, he has gone 6-of-7 on third down with two touchdown passes. I think he can play under pressure.
That is awesome.

The Bulldogs are able to get the ball out of their own territory, and they are not letting the clock run. The combo of Quayvon Hicks and Gurley is giving the Gamecocks fits on defense.
Here's Murray's fourth touchdown pass.
The Bulldogs defense comes up with a huge stop at the goal line. That could be the play of the entire game, because the Gamecocks needed to score on that drive.
South Carolina is driving. The defense is sitting back and letting Shaw pick it apart. Not sure if that's the best strategy.
Not good news at all.
Kenarious Gates is actually out for the game. No word on Keith Marshall yet.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) September 7, 2013
Yeah. What's the deal?
Georgia now leads 41-30, and holy moly Aaron Murray really stinks in big games.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) September 7, 2013

Aaron Murray has his best throw of the game as he completes an 85-yard touchdown pass to Justin Scott-Wesley. Looks like Murray can make plays against Top 10 opponents.
Kenrious Gates is out with a ankle injury. He is not going to return to the game.

Mike Davis scores the touchdown, but South Carolina misses the extra point. That is a win/loss for the Bulldogs defense, because they gave up six points but the missed extra point means that the Gamecocks have to score a touchdown and not a field goal.
This has been an issue all game long for the Bulldogs.

Gurley gets the first receiving touchdown of his career from Murray to give the Bulldogs the 10-point lead. Murray has thrown for three scores and no picks.
Vast improvement from last game, in which he threw for one pick and zero touchdowns.
Mark Beard will replace Gates. We'll see what he's made of.
Kenarious Gates is down for the Bulldogs. It would be a big blow for Georgia's offensive line if he's seriously hurt, because he has done a solid job on Clowney today.
And they say that the fullback position is a dying breed.
Quayvon Hicks. Dude is just a beast.— CFB Zealots (@CFBZ) September 7, 2013
Jadeveon Clowney is going in and out of the game. He's been in pain all game long. The Bulldogs need to run at his replacement just to see how tough he his.
Chris Conley with a nice third-down catch. Watch out for this guy. He will have a huge year.
Hey, you do what you got to do.
Nice job by Grantham using the sun defense. Totally coached the large fireball up right there.— Matt Chernoff (@RealMattlanta) September 7, 2013
It is a very well played game.
This game starting to remind anyone of the SEC championship? (And I don't mean it'll finish that way.)— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) September 7, 2013
