It responded with a 52-yard drive on eight plays that ended with a 40-yard field goal by PK Jack Podlesny to cut it to 13-3. Two key plays on the drive included converting a 3rd-and-9 play with an 18-yard completion by senior QB Stetson Bennett to junior WR Dominick Blaylock and a 33-yard reception by sophomore TE Brock Bowers. Then, the Bulldogs trailed 16-3 with 3:16 left in the first half and kicked a field goal as time expired to cut the deficit to 16-6.
Georgia failed to score in the first quarter for the first time since last year's national championship game as Alabama led 3-0 before the Bulldogs came back for a 33-18 victory.

The Last Time: Georgia executed a fake field goal as Stetson Bennett rushed for five yards on 4th-and-3 at the Mizzou 22. It was the team's first since the 2020 Sugar Bowl when Georgia's Jake Camarda ran for a first down. Tonight's drive ended with a 34-yard FG.

Cody Schrader's 63-yard scamper was the longest play allowed by the Bulldogs this season, and it led to a field goal and a 16-3 advantage.
Georgia entered the game ranked fourth nationally in Scoring Defense, surrendering just 8.0 points a game. The leading tackler at half for the Bulldogs was Jamon Dumas-Johnson with six stops.
