Aaron Murray, quarterback
Murray set a laundry list of Georgia and Capital One Bowl records by completing 18 of 33 passes for 427 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions.
Alec Ogletree, inside linebacker
In what might be his last game at Georgia, Ogletree made a game-high 13 tackles with a sack and his third-quarter forced fumble changed the dynamic of the game.
Damian Swann, cornerback
Swann made two critical interceptions and returned them for a total of 46 yards. He also had six tackles.
Turning point: Georgia’s rushing defense looked confused early in the third quarter until Ogletree forced a fumble by Ameer Abdullah and recovered it at the Bulldogs’ 38 with 5:30 left in the period. Georgia then outscored Nebraska 14-0 to finish the game.
Play of the game: Georgia took the lead for good one play into the fourth quarter when Keith Marshall made a spinning back-shoulder catch for a 24-yard touchdown.
