Blog: UGA wins `practice game’ scrimmage in OT (with statistics)

Georgia held its final preseason scrimmage this afternoon at Sanford Stadium.

It was the starters and top reserves  of Georgia vs. the scout-teamers simulating Buffalo.

“It was a great day, I think,” coach Mark Richt said. “Georgia won. We had a barn-burner today.”

If you are scoring at home, Georgia took a 49-48 overtime victory in the closed scrimmage. Buffalo was spotted 35 first-half points and the scrimmage began at halftime.

The biggest news of the day might have been that Richt said that he’s pretty sure sophomore tailback Ken Malcome will start the opener, but he said something could change.

Here are the stats. They are all from the Georgia side.

Passing: Aaron Murray 20-25 253 yards 2 TD, Christian LeMay 3-5 42, Hutson Mason 2-4 24 TD

Rushing: Todd Gurley 6-54 TD, Ken Malcome 6-50, Keith Marshall 3-17, Richard Samuel 3-10.

Receiving: Marlon Brown 7-98, Rantavious Wooten 3-37, Arthur Lynch 2-36, Chris Conley 3-29, Michael Bennett 2-26 TD, Tavarres King 2-24, Rhett McGowan 3-23 TD, Keith Marshall 1-23 TD, Ken Malcome 1-18, Merritt Hall 1-5.

Tackles: Mike Gilliard 4, Malcolm Mitchell 3, John Jenkins 3, Jarvis Jones 3, Amarlo Herrera 3, Connor Norman 3, Jordan Jenkins 2, Cornelius Washington 2, Sheldon Dawson 1, Garrison Smith 1, Shawn Williams 1, Damian Swann 1, Abry Jones 1, Christian Robinson 1, Ramik Wilson 1.

Sack: John Jenkins.

Tackles for loss: John Jenkins,Jarvis Jones,JordanJenkins, Cornelius Washington, Garrison Smith.

Pass break-ups: Damian Swann 2, Washington, Branden Smith, Williams.

Int: Herrera 23-yard return for touchdown.

FG: 57-yarder missed. Richt didn’t say but I am assuming it was Marshall Morgan with the attempt.
