Georgia Bulldogs dominate in 66-0 victory over Troy


Between the hedges is usually a friendly place for Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs and today was no different. Georgia cruised passed the Troy Trojans on their way to a 66-0 victory.

Troy’s best chance to score was on the opening drive when they went 68 yards in just under 5 minutes only to miss a chip shot 26-yard field goal. It was all Bulldogs after that. Freshman running back Sony Michel had his best game as a Bulldog with 10 carries for 155 yards and 3 touchdowns. Heisman hopeful Todd Gurley didn’t score any touchdowns (gasp), but had several long runs before ending his day with 6 carries for 73 yards coming out with a 12.2 yards per carry.

With the game over early,  it is a little surprising they didn’t try and get Hutson Mason in a rhythm and give him a little confidence boost after last week. Still, Mason completed 8 passes for 97 yards and 2 touchdowns and was generally solid.

Bulldog nation should be happy to see that their team didn’t take losing to South Carolina lightly and came ready to play against an over-matched Troy team. The Georgia Bulldogs will now have a week to get ready for Tennessee as they head into the heart of conference play. The Volunteers will be coming off a bye after getting walloped by Oklahoma in Norman to put them at 2-1 for the season.

Check back with ATL All Day later in the week as we preview the Bulldogs vs. the Volunteers, and as always, stay tuned for UGA coverage throughout the season.
