On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Oxford, Mississippi, the Georgia Bulldogs led by quarterback Aaron Murray dominated the Ole Miss Rebels 27-13.

The Dawgs got off to a quick start in the 1st quarter, putting up three points with a 36-yard field goal by Blair Walsh.  With just 1:30 remaining in the quarter, Aaron Murray rushed for a one-yard touchdown with Walsh kicking in the extra point.

In the 2nd quarter, Ole Miss began to fight back, putting up 13 points of their own.  However, Georgia answered those with 14 more points, leaving the score 24-13 at the half.  The 3rd quarter came and went with no points put up by either side.

The 4th quarter was relatively peaceful as well until the final five minutes of the game.  That's when Blair Walsh successfully made another field goal, this time for 43 yards, bringing the score to 27-13.  Ole Miss attempted to make something happen after receiving the ball with 4:21 remaining, but a pass thrown by Rebels QB Zack Stoudt was intercepted by Georgia.

Georgia failed to make anything happen with their last possession, giving Ole Miss one last shot to even up the score.  The Rebels did score in the final few seconds of the game, only to have it taken back after the Rebels received a penalty for an illegal block.  The game ended as Zack Stoudt was sacked, leaving Georgia victorious over the Rebels 27-13.

Aaron Murray finished the day 17-of-26 with 269 yards passing. The win today continues a multi-year winning streak for the Dawgs over the Rebels, and it's a much-needed win for Georgia as they continue to battle in the SEC.
