JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes on fourth down, and No. 22 Georgia overcame several mistakes to beat Southeastern Conference rival Florida 24-20 today.
Georgia head coach Mark Richt celebrates after the Georgia Bulldogs defeat over the Florida Gators 24-20 at Everbank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2011. Georgia hasn't won the rivalry since 2007.
The Bulldogs, at the very least, kept pace with South Carolina in the Eastern Division.
It was Georgia’s fourth victory in the last 22 games against Florida and could be a big one for coach Mark Richt. He had been under pressure since losing his first two games this season.
Now, the Bulldogs (6-2, 5-1 SEC) have won six straight.
The Gators have lost four in a row for the first time since 1988, a streak that certainly will taint coach Will Muschamp’s first season in Gainesville.
The latest loss came against Muschamp’s alma mater and eliminated Florida (4-4, 2-4) in the division race.
