Georgia Outlasts Nebraska In Capital One Bowl, Pulls Away In 4th Quarter

Another win for the SEC.

Score: No. 7 Georgia 45, No. 16 Nebraska 31

Stars:Georgia: Aaron Murray 427 Yds, 5 TDs. Nebraska: Rex Burkhead, 24 Car, 140 Yds, TD.

Story: This game was a tight one -- until the fourth the quarter, when Aaron Murray took over. Murray had a short memory and forgot about his two first half interceptions, leading the Dawgs to two touchdowns in the final period.

It was a shootout early (and had some bizarre plays too) but Georgia's defense managed to clamp down on the Cornhuskers late in the game. Once Nebraska fell behind, the Huskers had to abandon the run game that had been so effective for them and quarterback Taylor Martinez simply couldn't make enough plays down the stretch..
