Rushing Offense: B
Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley (31) and running back Keith Marshall (4) celebrate after Marshall's touchdown catch dduring the Bulldogs’ 45-31 win over Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl on Tuesday in Orlando, Fla.
What went right: Todd Gurley ran for 125 yards and a touchdown.
What went wrong: Georgia’s rushing didn’t dominate the game, but that might be because of all the long touchdown passes.
Bottom line: The running game might have been a bit under-used against a Cornhuskers defense that gave up more than 500 yards in its last outing. But it didn’t matter.
Passing Offense: A-
What went right: Aaron Murray had a record-setting day by completing 18 of 33 passes for 427 yards and tied a school record with five touchdowns.
What went wrong: Aaron Murray threw two interceptions, including one that went for a touchdown.
Bottom line: Although Nebraska had been one of the stingiest pass defenses in the country, Murray repeatedly beat the Cornhuskers for huge gains.
Rushing Defense: B-
What went right: Alec Ogletree forced a fumble in the third quarter that changed the momentum.
What went wrong: Georgia gave up 239 yards and 15 first downs on the ground.
Bottom line: Although Georgia looked ragged much of the game, it shored up the gaps in the fourth quarter when it mattered most.
Passing Defense: B+
What went right: Damian Swann made two interceptions and Georgia sacked Taylor Martinez five times.
What went wrong: Nebraska found some holes in the secondary for two first-half touchdowns.
Bottom line: Nebraska hasn’t been known for its sharp throwing, and that didn’t change against Georgia.
Special Teams: B+
What went right: Shawn Williams blocked a first-quarter punt that resulted in a safety.
What went wrong: Marshall Morgan missed a 47-yard field goal, and Nebraska averaged 22.5 yards on kickoff returns.
Bottom line: Georgia held a moderate overall advantage, but kicking wasn’t a decisive factor for either side.
What went right: The offense shook off early turnovers to have one of its best performances of the season.
What went wrong: The Georgia rushing defense gave up huge chunks of yards and Nebraska caught the Bulldogs in the middle of a shift on its third-quarter touchdown.
Bottom line: Georgia looked motivated and ready to play despite coming off of a disappointing loss in the Southeastern Conference title game.
