Georgia Bulldogs still road warriors, roll Arkansas in Little Rock


The Georgia Bulldogs continue to silence doubters as they won their second in a row on the road.

The Arkansas Razorbacks landed a series of body blows in their first drive, resulting in a touchdown, but Georgia landed nothing but devastating uppercuts and crosses after that, beating the Hogs 45-32.

By the end of the first half it was 38-6 Georgia, and a huge uphill climb that just couldn’t be made by the Razorbacks.

Once again, Nick Chubb — 22 carries, 202 yards, 2 TDs — had a fantastic day standing in for the suspended Todd Gurley, but Hutson Mason showed that he can find the end zone as well, throwing for 179 yards and two touchdowns.

Georgia ran for a total of 207 yards holding Arkansas — who runs the ball just as well as the Bulldogs — to only 126, the second week in a row they had been held under 150 yards rushing. The biggest part of the Razorbacks 422 yards of offense came in the air (296), and the bulk of that in the second half.

The man of the game on defense for the Dawgs was senior Damian Swann, who had been struggling playing the corner position during the first part of the season.

Swann ended up with two forced fumbles, two sacks, and an interception, and was in on several key defensive plays.

The second half was riddled with dumb penalties and some sloppy play by Georgia, allowing Arkansas to climb back into the game. But it was the four forced turnovers by UGA leading to 21 Georgia points in this game that sealed the deal and kept it out of reach for the Hogs.

Georgia improved to 6-1 overall, 4-1 in SEC play, and will now have a week of to rest up and get ready for the trip to Jacksonville for a Cocktail Party date with the Florida Gators.
