Thank you so much for following along this blog. We at Bleacher Report really appreciate it. Be sure to check back here a little later for my piece on the 10 things we learned from the Bulldogs win.
If there was one player that stood out for me , it would be Leonard Floyd. He was all over the field and is staring to become a nice pass rusher for the Bulldogs.
Another player that caught my eye is Reggie Davis who has 134 yards on two receptions.
The Bulldogs outplayed the Mean Green. It was not as pretty as many fans wanted it to be and it was closer than it should have been. But Georgia got the job done and that's all that matters.
That said, they will have to get a few things corrected before they take on LSU next Saturday.

J.J Green scores on the 1-yard run to add to the Bulldogs lead. Good to see Green get some playing time. He had a great offseason and could really be an excellent player for the Bulldogs in the future.
North Texas could not do anything on their last offensive series of the game. The Bulldogs will run out the clock and come away with the win.

Morgan kicks a 27-yard FG to increase the Bulldogs lead to 17. That score will help the Bulldogs wrap this game up with less than four minuets in the fourth quarter.

With less than eight minutes left, all the Bulldogs need to do is get a few more first downs and this game will be in the books. However, they would love to get a score here to fell good about themselves.
Georgia defense continues to play well. They force another North Texas punt and give the Bulldogs offense another opportunity to put the game on ice.
Here's a look the Gurley fumble.
Once again North Texas can't capitalize on the turnover and have to punt. Bulldogs are dodging some major bullets in this game.
The Bulldogs also need to not have turnovers, which just happened as Gurley fumbles and it's recovered by the Mean Green. If North Texas can score here, this game will be real interesting.
It looks like we are going to see a heavy dose of Gurley. The Bulldogs have to impose their will against North Texas and it starts with running the ball a lot this quarter.

Murray throws a 4-yard touchdown pass to Chris Conley to give them the 14-point lead. Murray was impressive on the drive as was spreading the ball around the ball around and even got some needed yards on the ground.
The Bulldogs are driving thanks in large part to Murray who is throwing and running his way into North Texas territory.
The defense gets the turnover they needed when Thompson's pass was picked off by Tray Matthews. That is his first INT of his career.
That is a good thing to keep in mind when watching this game.
Most important stat is the score, but for those flipping out, a reminder: Georgia 382 total yards, North Texas 135.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) September 21, 2013

Murray scores on an 1-yard run to give the Bulldogs the lead again. Georgia used the short field to its advantage. Now the defense has to make a play in for the Bulldogs in order to pull away from the Mean Green.
Todd Gurley is earning every yard he gets. North Texas is giving him little room to run.
